[4/4, mod. speed w/heavy bass] THE DEAD SWEETHEARTS POLKA --J. Wrabek CHORUS: The river is wide, and the river looks lonely; The river’s got secrets that she’s gonna keep; She’s got the body of my one true and only, Down on the bottom where the water runs deep. 1. I held her in my arms, going down to the river, Whispering softly that I’d miss her so; Down to the bank, where she’d leave me forever, Down underwater where the dead sweethearts go. CHORUS: The river is wide, and the river looks lonely; The river’s got secrets that she’s gonna keep; She’s got the body of my one true and only, Down on the bottom where the water runs deep. 2. I told her I knew she couldn’t live without me, And I watched her struggle, ‘fore I let her go; Dressed in a nightgown, she’s gonna sleep forever With the other dead sweethearts in the darkness below. CHORUS: The river is wide, and the river looks lonely; The river’s got secrets that she’s gonna keep; She’s got the body of my one true and only, Down on the bottom where the water runs deep. [GRATUITOUS INSTRUMENTAL BREAK] 3. Since she’s been gone, I’ve been so lonely, Looking for some new company to keep; Come stay with me and be my one true and only, Down by the river where the water runs deep. CHORUS: The river is wide, and the river looks lonely; The river’s got secrets that she’s gonna keep; She’s got the body of my one true and only, Down on the bottom where the water runs deep.
