Cold Dark Waters
Recorded by Porter Wagoner  [3/4 time]
written by Don Owens

C                              G7         C
In tomorrow's newspaper you'll read about me
But they won't tell the story I know
    C                   F
For they'll only say he plunged yesterday
       C         G7     C
To the cold dark waters below

  F                        C
I guess it all started the day we first met
You promised that you'd love me so
    C                        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
And I hope your conscience hurts so
        C                             F
All the tears that I've cried will be easy to hide
       C         G7     C  
In the cold dark waters below

    F                      C
Now I hear them running to try and stop me
They're shouting oh don't let him go
    C                          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
