Song title:       When The River
Original Album:   Sondre Lerche

Words and Music by Sondre Lerche

NOTES:
A couple of updates to the chorus chords. Enjoy!

Tuning is one tone below standard: DGCFAD, as seem to be all the songs I've
transcribed from this album. PLEASE NOTE THAT chords below are ACTUAL chords.
Hence, a voicing may be e.g. 022100, but the sound you'll make is a D-chord.
If that's what I heard, that is what I would call it.

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:
Chords (DGCFAD):
D   022100

[strum D gently]


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

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:
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:
D6b5   9x899x (2,1,3,4)     G    x77655
E7-5   8x897x (3,2,4,1)     C7/E 20021x
F#m7   7x687x (2,1,3,4)     D    022100
Ddim   6x5650 (3,2,4,1)

      D6b5      E7-5     F#m7  Ddim
Just around the bend and back again
      G               C7/E            D
Just another place to leave without a trace
      D6b5   E7-5        F#m7     Ddim
Just another mile down a dead-end drain
         G                C7/E                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
Been all for nothing, baby, for all too long
            A7
What say we right this wrong?
