Great website, my friend! I noticed that you were missing some details
the Bottle Rockets song, "Get Down" so I put in the missing pieces and the
chords. Great Song! These guys are from a small town in Missouri near the
Mississippi river that has the tendency to flood. One man's take on a
battle with Mother Nature.
Get Down The Bottle Rockets On the intros and breaks, repeat the G9 and C9 quite liberally - It's fun! Intro: G9 C9 G9 C9 G9 D G9 C9 G9 - Twice G Live in a river town, it's pretty little. D C G It's high on the sides and it sinks in the middle. G If it rains too much, the river comes down. D C G It fills up the low spots all over town. Chorus C G Get down river, river get down. D C G Won't you get down river, river get down. C G Em Once again you have messed up this old town, C D G So get down river, get down. Break: G9 C9 G9 C9 G9 D G9 C9 G9 Now over 'cross town is where I want to go. To see my honey, but I don't know. Guess I'm gonna have to row. Looks like the Gulf of Mexico down by the Texaco. Chorus Break: Em G Em G Em G C D G9 C9 G9 C9 G9 D G9 C9 G9 Well you can drown downtown when the river runs wild. It's been happening here ever since I was a child. There ain't nothing you can do to stop it. Just hope for the best and mop up the rest. Chorus Em C D G Repeat Thanks Scott!!!
