Down By the Water - The King Is Dead
INTRO

C | Em | C | Em | D 

VERSE

Em               G
See this ancient riverbed
D                 C
See where all the follies led
Em                        D                  Em
Down by the water, (and) down by the old main drag

Em             G
I was just some towhead teen
D                       C
Feelin' 'round for fingers to get in-between
Em                   D                 Em 
Down by the water, down by the old main drag

PRECHORUS

Em         D       Em
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D      C
The summer swells anon

CHORUS

Em               G
So knock me down, tear me up
D                                  C
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                 Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

BREAK

VERSE

Em                 G
(Sweet to send this reveler 'round)
    D                      C
the pretty little patter of a seaport town
Em                        D                      Em 
Rolling in the water and rolling down the old main drag

Em              G
All dolled up in gabardine
D                            C
The last flashing (lead) to appear nineteen
Em                    D                  Em 
Queen of the water and queen of the old main drag

PRECHORUS

Em        D        Em 
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D      C
The summer swells anon

CHORUS 

Em               G
So knock me down, tear me up
D                                  C
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                 Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

PRECHORUS

Em        D        Em
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D      C
The summer swells anon

CHORUS

Em               G
So knock me down, tear me up
D                                  C
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                 Em
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

OUTRO/CODA

Em                   D                 Em
Down by the water and down by the old main drag
Em                   D                 Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag
