lyrics

Em G D A

Chorus
Everybody's talking 'bout
But no one's going down to
Deep River!

Sherrif says he's looking
but there ain't much more he can do.
about Deep River!

Verse1
Everybody does the best that they can
20 years a working man
With a home and a family
young girl, a real beauty

But she up and went away
Nobody's seen her to this day,
And her story will give you a shiver
She's at the bottom of the Deep River.

Chorus

Verse2
When they said she could not be found,
I grabbed my coat and I grabbed my hound.
Down to the waters' edge.
Like standing on a high rise ledge.

In the water something made me cry.
My young girl's jacket just a floatin by.
I say right now and commit to stand.
I'm gonna hold her hand again.

Chorus

Bridge (Am to D)
