Something in the Water By Pokey LaFarge 

[Intro]  Dm        A  Dm        A  Dm         A ---
       
[Verse 1]
          Dm                    A        Dm                       A     
She got a broke down El Camino, / in the front yard up on blocks
    Dm                    Bb               A
Her mom walks around in a pink nightgown, sandals and white socks
    Dm                         A        Dm                                    A 
She don’t mind a baseball game / in the middle of the lightning and the rain
        A                        Bb            
She’s a pain in my brain, drives me insane
       A       C#dim    Dm              A      C#dim    Dm
But I love her just the same-- boys-- love her just the same

[Chorus]
                 F                                                A
Something in the water (something in the water)  Something in the water (something in the water)
Eb       A         F        A
Ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh
     F               A              Dm                 Bb
What makes her crazy I don’t know  Never seen anything like her before
      F       C                F    A
There must be something in the water

[Verse 2]
     Dm                       A              Dm                      A  
She does her makeup and hair  / to cook fried chicken in her underwear
     Dm                    Bb                   A
She drinks malt liquor for lunch and dinner and sends me running scared                   
     Dm                                  A      Dm                                A                   
She yells, she screams and she beats me  /  But I don’t mind the way she treats me
       Dm                  Bb                        
She’ll someday lead to my death I know, 
A             C#dim    Dm                     A            C#dim   Dm   
but I’ll stay with her just the same-- boys--stay with her just the same

[Chorus]
                 F                                                A
Something in the water (something in the water)  Something in the water (something in the water)
Eb       A         F        A
Ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh
     F               A              Dm                 Bb
What makes her crazy I don’t know  Never seen anything like her before
      F       C                F    A
There must be something in the water

Then:  INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS  
followed by vamp:  Dm       A  Dm        A  Dm       A ---

[Verse 3]
   Dm                       A           Dm                        A     
My hoosier girl is so fine  /  shake the watermelon off the vine
       Dm               Bb                          A
She’ll blow you a fist, throw you a kiss and you’ll thank her every time
             Dm                          A         Dm                               A 
Mmm, they’re all so crazy and beautiful  /  But I tell you the woman is never dull
        Dm                          Bb
They’ll break your back, give you a heart attack
        A         C#dim     Dm         A         C#dim    Dm
But you need them just the same--boys--need them just the same

[Chorus]
                 F                                                A
Something in the water (something in the water)  Something in the water (something in the water)
Eb       A         F        A
Ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh  --  ooh
     F               A              Dm                 Bb
What makes her crazy I don’t know  Never seen anything like her before
      F       C                F    A
There must be something in the water
         
F                                                  F                          
Something in the water (something in the water), Something in the water (something in the water)…

The intro is:

C#dim7 Dn Edim7 Dm

The two dim chords are kind of the same but if you play:

C#dim7 (A 4th D 5th G 3rd B 5th E 3rd)
then Dm open positionn,
Edim7 (same shape as C#dim7 but starting A 7th)
then Dn 5th fret Barre

then you replicate the melody at the seart
