[Introduction]

E7  Edim7  E7  A   E  B7   A7   E7   B7

[Verse 1]
E                A                E7
Out by the river walk down by the sea
A                                   E
Out by  the river, walk down by the sea
          B7                   A7           E7      B7
I got the tadpoles and minnows arguing over me

[Verse 2]

E                       A                       E7
Standing here wonderin' will a matchbox hold my clothes
    A                                                    E
I'm just standing here wonderin' will a matchbox hold my clothes
  B7                             A7                   E7    B7 
I ain't got too many matches but Lawd I got so far to go


[Instrumental]

E7  Edim7  E7  A   E  B7   A7   E   B7

[Verse 3]
E           A                   E7
Lawd, mama, who may your master be?
A                                     E
Hmm, mama, who might your sweet daddy be?
       B7                             A7                   E    B7 
Need I ask so many questions, can you make 'rangements for me?

[Verse 4]
          E                      A               E7
An' I'd a little girl cross town crochet all the time 
          A                                      E
Yeah that little girl cross town crochet all the time
                   B7                    A7                       E7     B7
Honey if you don't quit that crochetin', Lawd you gonna lose your mind.


[Instrumental]

E7  Edim7  E7  A   E  B7   A7   E7   B7

[Verse 5]
E                           A                         E7
Lawd I don't mind marriage, just can't stand settlin' down
A                                             E
An' I don't mind marriage, but Lord, settlin' down
     B7                         A7                                  E7       B7
Don' wanna be like no preacher, Lawd I just wanna ride from town to town



[Verse 6]

E                           A                    E7
Well, I'm leavin' town, but cryin' won't make me stay
    A                                       E
I'm leavin' town, ev'n cryin' won't make me stay
B7                          A7                    E       E7
Baby, the more you cry, the further you drive me away.
