River – Lyrics

River

Words & Music (c) Sofia Echegaray

Note: All chords are normal chords except this one: Cmaj9 = | 0 2 0 0 1 0|…just a stop on the walk-down between C and Am 🙂

4/4

(C) River is cold and the river was old

When the bottom was (G) rough beneath the feet

River is cool when you’re hot and you’re (G7) tired

And the river is (C) always sweet

River’s the (F) answer when you can’t ask (C) why

River’s the living and the (Cmaj9) lover’s (Am) cry…

(G) River will know you

And (G7) you’ll know who you (C) are

 

Chorus

And the river will roll with you

Callin’ your name tell you who you (G) are

River will roll with you (G7)

Lettin’ you know you ain’t goin’ far (C)

River will (F) guide you

Hitchin’ your wagon to its bright cold (C) star

River will (G) know you, and (G7) you’ll know who you (C) are

 

River’s the key turning the lock open inside of you

River’s the song that you’re learning to sing – it’s the song that you always knew

River’s the answer when the way’s not clear

River’s the living and the loving here

River will know you and you’ll know who you are

 

Chorus

 

River’s the child learning to swim

And the river’s her daughter grown

River’s the years and the rivers the miles and the river is coming home

River’s the answer at the end of your days

River’s the living and the loving ways

River will know you, and you’ll know who you are

 

Chorus (Reprise)

And the river will roll with you

Calling your name tell you who you (G) are

River will roll with you (G7)

Lettin’ you know you ain’t goin’ far (C)

And the river will (F) guide you

Hitchin’ your wagon to its bright cold (C) star

River will (G) know you, and (G7) you’ll know who you (F) are…

‘Cause you might have to (G) leave Texas, but you won’t be going (F) (G) (C) far…
