The Big Muddy - Bruce Springsteen 

| D | D |

Billy had a mistress down on A and 12th

She was that little somethin' that he did for himself
    D4
His own little secret didn't hurt nobody
         G
Come the afternoon he'd take her wadin'

D
Waist deep in the big muddy

Waist deep in the big muddy
    G                                 D
You start out standing but end up crawlin' sonny


Got in some trouble and needed a hand from a friend of mine

This old friend he had a figure in mind
       D4
It was nothing illegal just a little bit funny
                                       G
He said, "C'mon don't tell me that the rich don't know sonny

Sooner or later it ll comes down to money."

           D
And you're waist deep in the big muddy

Waist deep in the big muddy
    G                                     D
You start on higher ground but end up crawlin' sonny

       G
Well I had a friend sid, "You watch what you do
                                  D
Poison snake bites you and you're poison too"

How beautiful the river flows and the birds they sing

But you and I we're messier things
            D4
There ain't no one leavin' this world buddy
                   G
Without their shirttail dirty

Or their hands bloody

D
Waist deep in  the big muddy

Waist deep in the big muddy
    G                                             D
You start on higher ground but end up somehow crawlin' sonny

Waist deep in the big muddy

Waist deep in the big muddy

Waist deep in the big muddy
