Eb      Cm          Eb      Ab
Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River
   Eb         Ab              Eb        Cm
He must know somepin', but he don't say nothin'
    Bb7       Bb9         Fm7       Bb9     Eb    Ab6  Eb
He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along~~~~~~~~~

Eb             Cm             Eb          Ab
He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton
     Eb        Cm            Eb     Ebdim
And them what plants 'em is soon forgotten
    Bb7     Fm7               Bb9      Eb     Ab  Eb   Cdim  D7
But Ol' Man River, jest keeps rollin' along~~~~~~~~~

Gm      D7      Gm       Cdim     D7
You and me, we sweat and strain~~~~
Gm6        Cdim        Gm          D7
Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain
Gm        Cm6        Gm       Cdim
Tote that barge and lift that bale
Gm              Cdim          Gm      Fm Bb7
Ya get a little drunk and ya lands in ja-ail

Eb     Cm           Eb      Ab
I gets weary and so sick of tryin'
    Eb        Bb9             Cm       F7
I'm tired of livin', but I'm feared of dyin'
    Eb      Cm        Fm9        Bb7     Eb      Abm  Eb Fm7 Bb7
And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

END WITH

Cracking Tab I love it, best version of this song on the net, by a mile. I have made though one slight modification. I play Am9 instead of Bb9 following the Fm7 in the verse. Great job.
