Drowning Man 
words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Intro: G  Em

    C             G
I remember when I met you
     Em  C             G
Underneath the evening sky
       Am  Am/B           C
Now it seems   I could forget you
       D                Em
Rescue me, I'm bound to die
        C           G
All the promises we made there
        Em  C          G
With no words  to understand
                Am  Am/B             C
And though I've tried   I've come up empty
         D               Em
Heart of stone, drowning man

          C            G
I'm going down for the third time
      Em  C            G
And I need   a helping hand
            Am  Am/B         C    
The rooster crows    and I'm sinking
         D               Em
Heart of stone, drowning man

Where are you, my dear companion
How much longer must you be
I'm all alone out on the ocean
When will you come and rescue me

It's too late for new beginnings
In this world I've left behind
There is nothing left worth keeping
Not a thing to change my mind


How far down the road to glory
Must we go without a sign
Caught out on these stormy waters
How can you treat me so unkind

Did you know from the beginning
That I'd dig this lousy hole
Oh, don't leave me here abandoned
In this dark night of the soul
