Intro: Em7b5 D#m7b5 Dm7b5 E A7 E A7 E A7 E


     A         E           C#7
Well I'm goin' down to the river           

           F#m7 B7         E    B7
I've got a cane pole in my hand     

     E      C#7           F#m7                 B7
I've got my redworms in a Maxwell house coffee can
          E           G#7             A                    D9
I'm gonna sit under a shade tree on a riverbank where it's cool
          E                 C#7               F#m7     B7      E
I'm gonna close my eyes and dream and let the cork Bob away my blues
E                    C#7            A7          D9
Well I wake up every mornin' I pick peaches all day
       E                           C#7                            
And on Saturday night we'll have a dance or two 
           F#m7          B7   C7 B7
  we might wallow in the hay    
        E                    C#7
Now the only thing that ever whipped my pa         
         A7                  D9
Was this bad dude called old age       
        E                        C#7
And his last years were his best years
    F#m7            B7     E    C7 B7 
And this is what he had to say       
        A                                D9       
He said boy I've worked this dirt all my life 
           E7                  E
but things ain't been good for awhile             
Why don't you move to the city make a little money 
                 B7               C7             B7
you might be the first one in the family ever to die with a smile     
       E               C#7  
Well I took his advice things goin' well       
       A                   D9
But my friends are far and few
    E              C#7            F#m7              B7
But whoever said a city boy can't have them country blues

E              C#7            F#m7              B7
Whoever said a city boy can't have them country blues
E              C#7            F#m7              B7 
Whoever said a city boy can't have them country blues 
     C7               B7               E
Well honey they ain't talked to me and you 

Gm7b5 Fm7b5 F#m7b5 Em7b5 Fm7b5 D#m7b5 E

(The last line is played one strum per chord)
