Cold Dark Waters Recorded by Porter Wagoner [3/4 time] written by Don Owens
G7 C In tomorrow's newspaper you'll read about me
G7 But they won't tell the story I know
F For they'll only say he plunged yesterday C G7 C To the cold dark waters below
C I guess it all started the day we first met
G7 You promised that you'd love me so
F And I never thought it would end in regret C G7 C In the cold dark waters below
G7 C In a moment I'll ride on the drift of the tide
G7 And I hope your conscience hurts so
F All the tears that I've cried will be easy to hide C G7 C In the cold dark waters below
C Now I hear them running to try and stop me
G7 They're shouting oh don't let him go
F But it's far too late and I'll soon meet my fate C G7 C In the cold dark waters below
F C G7 C In the cold dark waters below
