Chords by: Chase Chafin

This song has been done by many musicians and is typically titled "Hesitation Blues"
Charlie Poole's version features banjo and fiddle, and was recorded in 1930.

If the river was whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom and I'd never come up.
             Bb                       F
Well tell me how long, have I got to wait?
        C7                        F
Oh, can I get you now? Must I hesitate?

The first two lines of every verse vary, but the chord progression and the last 
two lines stay the same throughout.
