G                     D                   C                  G
 Half a mile from the county fair and the rain keep pourin' down
G             D                     C             G
 Me and Billy standin' there with a silver half a crown
G                    D                   C             G
 Hands are full of a fishin' rod and the tackle on our backs
G                    D                    C                 G
 We just stood there gettin' wet with our backs against the fence

Am       D      Am      D     Am       D     Em                          D
 Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Hope it don't rain all day

       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll, and it stoned me
       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like goin' home, and it stoned me

         G                   D               C                  G
Then the rain let up and the sun came up and we were gettin' dry
G             D             C              G
 Almost let a pick-up truck nearly pass us by
      G                       D                     C                 G
So we jumped right in and the driver grinned and he dropped us up the road
       G                         D                       C               G
And we looked at the swim and we jumped right in, not to mention fishing poles

Am       D      Am      D     Am       D     Em                       D
 Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Let it run all over me

       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll, and it stoned me
       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like goin' home, and it stoned me

       G                D                   C                    G
On the way back home we sang a song but our throats were getting dry
        G                 D                       C               G
Then we saw the man from across the road with the sunshine in his eyes
        G                      D                      C                G
Well he lived all alone in his own little home with a great big gallon jar
           G                    D                 C                     G
There were bottles too, one for me and you and he said, "Hey! There you are"

Am       D      Am      D     Am       D     Em                                      D
 Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Oh, the water. Get it myself from the mountain stream

       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll, and it stoned me
       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like goin' home, and it stoned me
       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll, and it stoned me
       G         C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D                  Em     G
Stoned me just like goin' home, and it stoned me
