[Verse 1]
G
Oh tenderness, babe, oh treachery, yeah
Em                           C 
Let go the dealer’s hand and quit placing bets for me
G
Oh such tenderness, yeah, at zero gravity (well)
Em                                    C    
Let go the other man’s hand and treat me with some decency (yeah)

C                           D
Since we’ve parted darlin', I can’t get a hold on nothing
C                        D
I pretend, but you know, I can’t live without your loving
C                      D 
All those promises of yours, they just dissolve to nothing
C                        D
I pretend, but you know, I can't live without your loving

[Chorus 1]
G  
Roll on sweet milk river
G
Float on brackish sea
Em  
Flow down mannish water 
D
Wash away this misery

G
Roll on sweet milk river
G
Float on brackish sea
Em
Flow down mannish water
D
Wash away these sins from me...(alright)

[Verse 2]
G
Oh tenderness babe, blatant heresy (well)
Em                                  D
When you act the queen of crime and start faking dignity (well)
G
Oh such refined noblesse it’s almost regency (well)
Em
Slip back your black and white tongue 
    D
And treat me with some decency (yeah)
        
C                           D
Since we've parted darlin', I can't get a hold on nothing (*hold on)
C                        D 
I pretend, but you know, I can’t love without your loving (*hold on)
C                     D  
All those promises of yours, they don’t evolve to nothing (*hold on)
C                       D
I pretend, but you know I can’t live without your loving
