   G
I came in three days early
                 C/G
To meet my boat
    G                       Gadd9
It aint the life of Riley
          Em7          C/G
But its keeping me afloat


      G
Its quiet over Christmas
                        C/G
If you got no place to go
   G                Gadd9
I got my home from river rats
    Em7           CMaj7/G  G  Gadd9  G
The only home I know


   G
I found myself a flophouse
                          C/G
And I hit the streets at nine
 G                  Gadd9
Get some grub and drink a beer
 Em7               CMaj7/G
Maybe go down the line


        G
These chips will take your money
                   C/G
Shake a young man down
          G            Gadd9
Its the same in every one of these
 Em7         C/G
Sorry river towns


 G           Gadd9
River towns
 G                 C/G
Sorry river towns

        G              Gadd9
Well I picked me up a bottle
    G                CMaj7/G
To take back to the room
        G                 Gadd9
Then I saw a young girl standing
      Em7             C/G
In a doorway in the gloom


      G              Gadd9
Wed hardly started talking
    G             C/G
The old scenario
            G              Gadd9
And I just let her work me over
      Em7     C/G
Down by the Ohio


 G           Gadd9
River towns
 G                 C/G
Sorry river towns

       G
When I asked her if shed like to stay
                           C/G
She was down my stairs so quick
        G
I never asked what got her started
          Em7          C/G
With the sorry river tricks


      G             Gadd9
So I get the bottle open
     G                 C/G
But somethings hit a nerve
         G              Gadd9
And Im looking in the mirror
        Em7           CMaj7/G
At the face that I deserve



 G           Gadd9
River towns

View Just Lyrics...

I came in three days early
To meet my boat
It ain’t the life of Riley
But it’s keeping me afloat
It’s quiet over Christmas
If you got no place to go
I got my home from river rats
The only home I know

I found myself a flophouse
And I hit the streets at nine
Get some grub and drink a beer
Maybe go down the line
These chips will take your money
Shake a young man down
It’s the same in every one of these
Sorry river towns

River towns, sorry river towns
River towns
River towns, sorry river towns
River towns

Well I picked me up a bottle
To take back to the room
Then I saw a young girl standing
In a doorway in the gloom
We’d hardly started talking
The old scenario
And I just let her work me over
Down by the Ohio

River towns, sorry river towns
River towns
River towns, sorry river towns
River towns

When I asked her if she’d like to stay
She was down my stairs so quick
I never asked what got her started
With the sorry river tricks
So I get the bottle open
But something’s hit a nerve
And I’m looking in the mirror
At the face that I deserve

River towns, sorry river towns
River towns
River towns, sorry river towns
River towns
