"Rock Bottom Riser"
A River Ain't Too Much to Love
Tuning is essential here. First tune your guitar down 3 steps: C#F#BEG#C#, then tune 3rd 
(E) down one more to D#, making it C#F#BD#G#C#.
Wording it another way (because its tricky), make sure you tune the EADBE strings down 3 
the G string down 4, thus giving you C#F#BD#G#C#.

I love my mother
I love my father
I love my sisters too
I bought this guitar
to pledge my love
to pledge my love to you

I am a rock bottom riser
and I owe it all to you
I am a rock bottom riser
and I owe it all to you

I saw gold rings
at the bottom of the river
glinting
at my foolish heart
Oh my foolish heart
had to go diving
diving diving diving
into the murk

And from the bottom of the river
I looked up for the sun
Which had shattered in the water
And the pieces were raining down
Like gold rings
That passed through my hands
As I thrashed and I grabbed
I started rising rising rising

Wow, I didn't want to try it at first, because of the awkward tuning, but this sounds perfect! Well done!
