Old Black Water
The Doobie Brothers 

A2 D2 (x4)
                  A2            D2                   A2           D2
      Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for floatin'
      Ol' Mississippi, she's callin' my name
      Catfish are jumpin', that paddle wheel thumpin'
      Black water keeps rollin' on past just the same

                    G
                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Bb2
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me
                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me
                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin'

                                        A2 Em                      A2                Em
                                  On me  -  yeah, keep on shinin' your light
                                  Gonna make everything, pretty mama
                                    gonna make everything all right
                                            D2               A2
                                  And I ain't got no worries
                                                 D2            A2         A2  Em  A2
                                    cause I ain't in no hurry at all
                                              *Interlude*   A2 D2 (x4)

      Well, if it rains, I don't care - don't make no difference to me
      Just take that street car that's goin' up town
      Yeah, I'd like to hear some funky dixieland and dance a honky tonk
      And I'll be buying everybody drinks all around

                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me
                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me
                    Old black water, keep on rollin'
                      Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin'

                                  On me - yeah, keep on shinin' your light
                                  Gonna make everything, pretty mama
                                    gonna make everything all right
                                  And I ain't got no worries
                                    cause I ain't in no hurry at all
                                               *Interlude*   A2 D2 (x8)

      I'd like to hear some funky dixieland
        pretty mama come and take me by the hand
   (acapella)
      By the hand, take me by the hand pretty mama
        come and dance with your daddy all night long

      I'd like to hear some funky dixieland
        pretty mama come and take me by the hand
      By the hand, take me by the hand pretty mama
        come and dance with your daddy all night long

      I'd like to hear some funky dixieland
        pretty mama come and take me by the hand
   (fade chords in)
      By the hand, take me by the hand pretty mama
        come and dance with your daddy all night long...

                                                                               (repeat & fade)
