Verse:

E riff                              D    A
I don't know why I love her like I do
E riff                             D   A
All the changes you put me through
E riff                        D   A
Take my money, my cigarettes
E riff                        
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

Pre-chorus:
        C            G
I wanna know can you tell me
A          Em7
I love to stay

Chorus:
               E riff                      E riff
Take me to the river,      drop me in the water
               E riff                      E riff
Take me to the river,      dip me in the water ( washing me down, washing me down )


Verse:
I don't know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the things we could have had
Love is an ocean that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I wanna know that you'll tell me
A          Em7
I love to stay

Chorus:
                E riff                E riff
Take me to the river, drop me in the water

Push me in the river, dip me in the water ( washing me down, washing me ... )



Bridge:

C#m      A          C#m      A          Em7

Till I can't, till I can't, till I can't take no more of it
                E riff                     E riff
Take me to the water,      drop me in the river
                E riff                     E riff
Push me in the water,      drop me in the river ( Washing me down, washing me down )




Verse:
I don't know why I love you like I do
All the troubles you put me through
Sixteen candles there on my wall
And here am I the biggest fool of them all

         C                G
I wanna know that you'll tell me
A           Em7
I love to stay

Chorus:
Take me to the river and drop me in the water
Dip me in the river, drop me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down.
