The River Knows Your Name  (from the album: Walk On) By John Hiatt

Bb      F    Bb      F
Oh the river knows your name
       Dm       C               Bb
And your tears falling like the rain
    Dm         C             F    Bb
All around you suffering and pain
      F      C          F
Oh the river knows your name

Bb      F      Bb       F
And the river hears you cry
F      Dm        C               Bb
As the lightning cracks the open sky
       Dm     C           F    Bb
As your Momma sings a lullaby
      F      C         F
Oh the river she knows why

(Same chord pattern repeats all five verses)

Let the river wash you down
Beneath the surface with a rushing sound
Like a freight train passing through a town
Let the river wash you down

Let the river take away
All the words what you and I could never say
In the silence Darling let us pray
Let the river take it all away

Oh the river knows your name
From the Brazos to the Wabash To the Seine
No two journeys are ever quite the same
But the river knows your name, Oh the river knows your name

Lack of accuracy. The chord progression is incorrect for the most part. Starts good but then veers off in the wrong direction.
