[Verse 1]

(muted stuming for this section)

I went down to the river
flowing out unto the sea
on my way to the ocean
let the spirit swallow me.

 
Am                     G
I got low down in the water
          C                    D
 I let the current guide my bones
Am                        G
 Ive got nine kinds of trouble
          D
 Im just trying to find my way home.


(Riff)


[Verse 2]

Am                          G 
Over twenty-some years of living
        C                 D
 and a thousand wasted days
Am                       G
 I have loved a lot of women
      D
 Many times Ive gone wrong ways
 
Am                        G
And I came down to the water
        C                  D
 For a dip, To cleanse my soul.
 Am                            G
 They keep telling me that Im just a babe
      D
 But baby, why do I feel so old?....


[Instrumental]

Am - G - C D


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                      D
This is the verge of a breakthrough
         C                      E
 its a fine line that cannot be bent
Am                      D
 and I felt like I river run dry
                       C                      E  
but I dont know where all of the rainwater went
 
Am                                  D
And I believed we were all dead or dying
         C                        E
 but I see different in the blue light
          Am                   D
 there is no such thing as a dawn or a dusk
       C                     E
 it is daylight until it is night


[Chorus]

                 Am             D 
Youve got to fight through the dimming
               C            E
 Youve got to run into the west
               Am               D
 Youve go to rage against the dying of the light
 C                          E
 Live for the moment thats left
 
                Am             D 
Youve got to fight through the dimming
               C            E
 Youve got to run into the west
               Am               D
 Youve go to rage against the dying of the light
 C                          E
 Live for the moment thats left


[Post-Chorus]

                F
Cause there is no such thing as a dying man
      Am
 Were alive till the moment were dead
       F
 and a drowning man is just a living man
    E 
Who hasnt run out of his last bit of breath.


[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]

       Am          G
I went down to the river
         C            D
 flowing out unto the sea
       Am           G
 on my way to the ocean
         D
 let the spirit swallow me.

          Am           G       
I got low down in the water
            C                D
 I let the current guide my bones
          Am             G
 Ive got nine kinds of trouble
           D                          Am-G-C-D
 Im just trying to find my way home.....
 

Am-G-C-D or Riff (x3)  
          
Find my way home.... 

Finish on Am
