[Intro]

[Verse]
           Am             G
She’s got a 3D Jesus in a picture frame
Am                G
  Got a child she never named
 
| Bb  G5    | G5      | x2
 
Am                    G
  She shakes a snake above her hair
Am                              G
  Talks in tongues when there’s no one there

[Chorus]
   Dm        Am    F
So meet me tonight at the Red River

Where the water is clear and cold
Dm        Am    F
Meet me tonight at the Red River
    Am                  D
And look down into your soul

Look down into your soul

[Verse]
           Am            G
She’s got a rosary and a rabbit’s foot
Am                      G
  A black cat bone that treats her good
 
| Bb  G5    | G5      | x2
 
Am                    G
  A tiger tooth and a gris-gris stick
Am               G
  Still it don’t do the trick
 
| Bb  G5    | G5      |
| Bb  G5    | G5      | G5 (2/4)
 
[Chorus]
   Dm        Am    F
So meet me tonight at the Red River
          Dm       Am        F
Where the water is clear and cold
Dm        Am    F
Meet me tonight at the Red River
    Am                  D
And look down into your soul
Am                  D    D
Look down into your soul

         Am                G
I’m gonna walk her down to gypsy town
Am                           G
  Find the spirit queen I’ve seen around
Am                     G
  Paint her body up in mud and clay
Am                      G
  Let the river wash it all away
 
| Bb  G5    | G5      |

And look down into your soul

Look down into your soul
