E / A /  E / D A  E / A / E   /  D    A 

                            E    A
I got lost in the back-streets
E             A         E    A
Trying to get here tonight
E                       E       A
The police were asking questions
     E              A           E      A   
They took me to the wrong place twice
E              A7        D
I even lost my passport
         A7              E       A    
And I forgot my name and town
            G    D(F#)  D   C
But now I'm here by the water
D                        E        A     E     A   E
Put the money down

E                    F#m G#m A
Before I walk on the water
              G     D(F#)  E
Put the money down, down, down
                         F#m G#m A
There are bands killing chickens
                                                  
                         G        D(F#)   E
My hero's getting pushed around, 'round, 'round
E                   A7       D
I don't know if I trust you
A7                        E    A   E
As you try to shoot me down
                     F#m  G#m    A
Before I walk on the water
              G     D(F#)  C(E)
Put the money down, down, down
D                         E      A    E   D A 
Put the money down.

        C                               G             E             
'Twas a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell
        D               A                           E                  
But the five loaves and fishes ain't gonna be much help
           C              G                        E
I've got a hungry juggler here who wants to keep ahead
    D                          A                                 
Before he walks the water, he wants his bread.

solo: repeat intro
                            
Take a glass of that light brown ale
And a purple pill
If the ale don't get you too
Sure as hell pill will
Oh mummy mummy
Please may I go down town
He's gonna walk on the water
Put the money down

Put it down!

E / A / | E / D A | E / A / | E / / / 
                       
Before I walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down
There are bands killing chickens
My hero's getting pushed around, 'round, 'round
I don't know if I trust you
As you try to shoot me down
Before I walk on the water
Put the money down, down, down, down, down
Put the money down

In a tin cup

repeat and fade
