[A][A][D][A][F#m][E][D][D]

[A]When the last rose of sum[A]mer pricks my [D]fin[A]ger

And the [A]hot sun chills [A]me to the [D]bone

When I [A]can’t hear the song for the [D]sin[A]ger,

And I [F#m]can’t tell my [E]pillow from a [D]stone,

[E]I will walk [A]alone by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

And sing me a [E]song of my [D]own,

[E]I will walk a[A]lone by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

And [F#m]sing me a [E]song of my [D]own.

[A]When the last bolt of [A]sunshine hits the [D]moun[A]tain,

And the [A]stars start to [A]splatter in the [D]sky,

When the [A]moon hits the [A]southwest ho[D]ri[A]zon,

With the [F#m]scream of an [E]eagle on the [D]fly,[D]

[E]I will walk a[A]lone by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

And [A]listen to the [E]ripples as they [D]moan,[D]

[E]I will walk a[A]lone by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

And [F#m]sing me a [E]song of my [D]own.[D]

[Bm]Black muddy [E]river, [A]roll [E]on for[F#m]ever,

I [D]don’t [E]care how deep or [A]wide, if you’ve [E]got another [A]side,

[D]Roll muddy [A]river, [Bm]roll muddy [A]river, [D]black muddy [E]river, [A]roll.[A]

Solo vers+chorus

[Bm]Black muddy [E]river, [A]roll [E]on for[F#m]ever,

I [D]don’t [E]care how deep or [A]wide, if you’ve [E]got another [A]side,

[D]Roll muddy [A]river, [Bm]roll muddy [A]river, [D]black muddy [E]river, [A]roll.[A]

[A]When it seems like the [A]night will last for[D]ev[A]er,

[A]And there’s nothing left to [A]do but count the [D]years,

When the [A]strings of my [A]heart begin to [D]se[A]ver,

[F#m]stones fall from my [E]eyes instead of [D]tears,[D]

[E]I will walk a[A]lone, by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

And [A]dream me a [E]dream of my [D]own,[D]

[E]I will walk a[A]lone, by the [D]black muddy [A]river,[A]

[F#m]And sing me a [E]song of [D]my [D]own, [D]

[F#m]sing me a [E]song of [D]my [D]own.
