 Audra Mae - The River
=======================
No Capo

[Intro]
F#


[Verse]
F#
I've done a bad thing, it's okay

I'm going down to the river today
        Bm
And the river's gonna wash my sins away
                      F#
Till I'm born again tomorrow
C#
Oh to get over my head
Bm                F#
Make me forget my sorrow


[Verse]
F#
I'm going down to the river alone

Don't tell mama and daddy I'm gone
    Bm
And if they cry when I don't come home
                       F#
Just lie and tell them I'm funnin'
C#
Whoa to get out of my eyes
Bm                  F#
Into the river wide I'm runnin'


[Chorus]
            Bm               F#
And I can't swim, but it's alright
              C#                               F#
'Cause all my sin would drag me down even if I could
                      Bm                 F#
And if it weren't for him and the love that night
       C#
I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
               F#
'Cause a good girl should


[Verse]
F#
This old town'll have my skin

I can't speak the trouble I'm in
   Bm
So if I don't come back again
                   F#
Go lie beneath the willow
       C#
'Cause where I carved my name
   Bm
Is where my soul will remain
         F#
And I'll still know


[Chorus]
                  Bm               F#
Lord, and I can't swim, but it's alright
              C#                               F#
'Cause all my sin would drag me down even if I could
                      Bm                 F#
And if it weren't for him and the love that night
       C#
I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
               F#
'Cause a good girl should


[Instrumental]
Bm F# C# F#
Bm F# C# C#
F# F#


[Verse]
F#
When I meet the Lord so kind

I'm gonna give him a piece of my mind
         Bm
And I'll tell him I wanna know why oh why
             F#
When he's so damned forgivin'
   C#
My daddy won't look in my eyes
Bm                   F#
Momma knows the lies I'm living


[Chorus]
                Bm              F#
Oh, and I can't swim but it's alright
              C#                               F#
'Cause all my sin would drag me down even if I could
                      Bm                 F#
And if it weren't for him and the love that night
       C#                                           
I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
F#              
  'Cause a good girl should
