Verse:
AmAm chord                 CC chord
Down by the river, by the boats
      EmEm chord                 Dsus2Dsus2 chord
Where everybody goes to be alone

When by the water we drink to the dregs

Look at the stones on the river bed
AmAm chord         CC chord
I can tell from your eyes
EmEm chord                      Dsus2Dsus2 chord  AmAm chord
You've never been by the riverside

And I don't know why I go the way down  by the riverside

Verse:
AmAm chord                       CC chord
When that old river runs past your eyes
   EmEm chord                       Dsus2Dsus2 chord
To wash off the dirt on the riverside
AmAm chord                 CC chord
Go to the water so very near
    EmEm chord                  Dsus2Dsus2 chord      AmAm chord
The river will be your eyes and ears

Verse:
  AmAm chord                  CC chord
I walk to the borders on my own
EmEm chord                     Dsus2Dsus2 chord
Fall in the water just like a stone
AmAm chord                      CC chord
Chilled to the marrow in them bones
EmEm chord                 Dsus2Dsus2 chord...
Why do I go here all alone?

And I don't know why I go the way down by the riverside

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
