[Verse]
G                    D
Half a mile from the county fair,
        C                 G
and the rain came pouring down
G            D
Me and Billy standing there
       C             G
with a silver half a crown
G             D
Hands full of fishing gear,
        C             G
and the tackle on our backs
G                   D
We just stood there getting wet,
         C                 G
with our backs against the fence


[Pre-Chorus]
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D         Em~
Oh, the water
                           D
Hope it don't rain all day


[Chorus]
G                C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D
Stoned me just like jelly roll
       Em     G
And it stoned me
G                C            G
And it stoned me to my soul
G              D
Stoned me just going home
       Em     G
And it stoned me


[Verse]
        G                    D
And the rain let up, and the sun came out,
   C            G
we were getting dry
G                 D
Almost glad a pickup truck
C                G
nearly passed us by
      G                       D
So we jumped right in and the driver grinned
       C                 G
and he dropped us up the road
   G                          D
We looked at the swim, and we jumped right in
       C               G
not to mention fishing poles


[Pre-Chorus]
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D         Em~
Oh, the water
                         D
Let it run all over me


[Chorus]
G                C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D
Stoned me just like jelly roll
       Em     G
And it stoned me
G                C            G
And it stoned me to my soul
G              D
Stoned me just going home
       Em     G
And it stoned me


[Solo]
G  D  C  G  4x
Am  D  3x
  Em~
D


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


[Pre-Chorus]
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D
Oh, the water
Am      D         Em~
Oh, the water
                                       D
Get it myself from the mountain stream


[Chorus]
G                C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D
Stoned me just like jelly roll
       Em     G
And it stoned me
G                C            G
And it stoned me to my soul
G              D
Stoned me just going home
       Em     G
And it stoned me


[Chorus]
G                C           G
And it stoned me to my soul
G                   D
Stoned me just like jelly roll
       Em     G
And it stoned me
G                C            G
And it stoned me to my soul
G              D
Stoned me just going home
       Em       G~
And it stoned me
