Am            F                                                
    It's been thirty-one years
Am              F
    Since she's been in your arms
Am            F
    But don't worry about Mama
C   G
    Mama's got a good heart

Am              F
    And I'm not looking for your love
Am           F 
    I'm only sniffing out blood
Am         F
    Just a little taste of 
    C            G
    where I came from


======================
= Chorus 0:54 - 1:20 =
======================
               Am    F        C    G
    And at the bottom of this river
               Am                 F
    Is where I put you down to lay
             C           G
    So I can live with it
              Am            F
    And in my heart heart heart
                    C     G 
    there are these waters
            Am              F  
    Where I put you down to lay
                     C          G
    While I learn to live with it
                Am

=====================
Am                F               
    And it's been all my life
Am            F
    I've been wondering on the inside
Am          F 
    What we could've had
C            G
    If you'd had a part in my life

Am                 F
    And there were children involved
Am                F 
    And they were brothers to me
Am       F 
    Even if we 
    C            G
    never got to meet


======================
= Chorus 1:55 - 2:20 =
======================
               Am    F        C    G
    And at the bottom of this river
               Am                 F
    Is where I put you down to lay
             C           G
    So I can live with it
              Am            F
    And in my heart heart heart
                    C     G 
    there are these waters
            Am              F  
    Where I put you down to lay

======================
= Bridge 2:20 - 2:48 =
======================
              C
    Until I'm free at last 
              Am 
    from this shadow that hangs
               F
    Surely you wonder sometimes
                     C        G 
    And I'm sure you all sympathize
                C
    Just what a man's to become,
                  Am
    just like his daddy's done
                   F
    I just want to love someone 
                C    G   
    Who has the same blood

    Who has the same blood
