Song title:       When The River
Original Album:   Sondre Lerche

Words and Music by Sondre Lerche

NOTES:
Tuning is one tone below standard: DGCFAD. Chords below are ACTUAL chords.
Hence, a voicing may be e.g. 022100, but the sound you'll make is a D-chord.

I've included chord voicings and notes in each section of the song as some
chords are unusual. The CHORUS chords are predominately jazz voicings, which
look fierce, but with practice can be nailed.


INTRO:
Intro Chords:
D   022100

[strum D gently]


VERSE:
Verse Chords:
D             022100
G             x02220
F#m7          464444
Bm            x46654
Gmaj7         x02120
Gm(maj7)add6  x02112
Gm7/F         3x2010
E7            x44320
A7            x2120x

D                      G        D
Take my hands, they're all I've got
            F#m7 Bm                   Gmaj7     Gm(maj7)add6
I ain't got no   nothing to prove but I    forgot
D                  G       D
Take my heart I'll wear it out
    Gm7/F     D                     E7
The friends I make here all come at extra cost
            A7
What say we just get lost


CHORUS:
Chorus notes:
The first four chords are jazz voicings. These are not barréd, in case you
were wondering... I've indicated the fingers to use for each of these chords,
which may help. It will still take practice to nail the transitions, though.
But it's worth it...!

Chorus Chords:
Bm add13       9x899x   (2,1,3,4)
E7             9x897x   (3,2,4,1)
F#m7           7x687x   (2,1,4,3)
D7             7x6750   (3,2,4,1)
G              x77655
Em11(no 5th)   202100
D              022100

      Bm add13     E7       F#m7  D7
Just around    the bend and back again
      G               Em11(no 5th)          D
Just another place to leave     without a trace
      Bm add13 E7          F#m7     D7
Just another   mile down a dead-end drain
         G                Em11(no 5th)              D
When the river turns I'll come        down with the rain

Take my hand and twist my arms
            F#m7 Bm               Gmaj7      Gm(maj7)add6
I ain't got it   in me to set off bells and alarms
D                      G      D
Tell my mother I'm not coming home
     Gm7/F   D                  E7

            A7
