Lyrics
THE RIVER
by STEVE DAFOE 2007 (COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS 1:

A Bm7
WHEN YOU SEE ME BY THE RIVER, I WON'T CRY BABY
JUST PRETEND WE NEVER WERE, SO JUST WALK ON BY
BUT I KNOW I STILL KOVE YOU, SO MAYBE JUST MAYBE
THAT YOU STILL CARE AND YOU'D WANNA ANOTHER TRY
G A
SO WHEN YOU SEE ME BY THE RIVER, I WON'T CRY BABY
IF YOU MEET BY THE RIVER, I'M STILL YOURS BABY
A
I'M STILL YOURS BABY (softer)
A Bm7
SO WHEN YOU SEE ME BY THE RIVER, I WON'T CRY BABY

VERSE 1:

G Fmaj7 Cm7
LIFE GOES ON AS THE RIVER FLOWS BY
AND IN THE HAZY HEAT, YOU CAN HEAR IT SIGH
AND I SIT HERE ALONE JUST WONDERING WHY
YOU BROKE MY HEART AND TORE IT APART
YOU BROKE MY HEART AND TORE IT APART
Fmaj7 Cm7
TORE IT APART

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VERSE 2:

G Fmaj7 Cm7
THE RAIN DANCES ON TOP OF THE WATER
FILLS THE RIVER AND SWELLS HER BANKS
LIKE THE DEPTH OF LONLINESS WITHIN ME
SO BIG AND DEEP, JUST LIKE A BIG SEA
BIG AND DEEP, JUST LIKE A BIG SEA
Fmaj7 Cm7
JUST LIKE A BIG SEA


VERSE 3:

G Fmaj7 Cm7
LIFE GOES ON AS THE RIVER FLOWS BY
AND IN THE HAZY HEAT YOU CAN HEAR IT SIGH
AND I SIT HERE ALL ALONE WONDERING WHEN
YOU'LL BE AROUND TO HOLD AND LOVE ME AGAIN
YOU'LL BE AROUND TO HOLD AND LOVE ME AGAIN
Fmaj7 Cm7
LOVE ME AGAIN
