Capo 2 

       G              Em 
Well I dove into that river
   C        G     D
To see what I could find
        C        G       D     G
And the water it rolled on top of me
        C                D
And the stars refused to shine

        G            Em 
Well I swam until I could not swim
       C        G     D
Then I swam a little more
        C       G              D       G
And the current held me like a lover’s arms
            C              D
And then it left me on the shore

       G                       Em 
Then I stood and looked to from where I came
    C           G     D
The place where I was born
       C         G       D       G
But it seemed to me only half is real
         C                D
Like the dark and distant storm

      G                      Em 
And I breathed the air around me
  C       G          D
I felt my heart beat new
      C       G          D       G
For I left my home and I nearly drowned
      C                    D             G
For a glimpse of something few have ever seen

       G                  Em 
Then I walked up from the shoreline
     C    G       D
To a city shining bright
      C          G               D      G
And I walked the streets of that lovely place
C                      D   
Till the coming of the night

          G              Em 
But there were no voices speaking
          C     G    D
There was not a soul around
     C   G           D     G
So I sat alone on an empty throne
       C              D  
In the middle of that town

[Chorus]

           C      G
And I said oh my, oh me
C  G      D
Oh me, oh my
          C          G       D        G
There’s a river that runs between the sun
        C               D
And the darkness of our lives
        C               G
You can hit the road or stay in bed
        C       G       D
You can sink or swim or fight
         C      G       D        G
But when all of this is said and done
         C              D             G
You gon’ walk so gently still into that night


       G                Em 
Then I sat so still and silent
        C    G       D
With my head hanging low
       C    G           D      G
And an emptiness like a barren field
            C                 D  
You know it settled round my soul

       G            Em 
Then a man appeared before me
         C        G     D
Though I tried, I can’t deny
        C      G        D        G
That he had my father’s face and hands
        C                   D  
But his eyes shone like the sky


           G           Em 
He said my son, you’ve come too soon
           C      G     D
You better get on outta here
             C       G              D      G
You know I’d let you stay but round here a day
        C               D  
Is much like a thousand years

         G               Em 
And your heart is like a diamond
   C          G        D
It splits the light in two 
           C    G           D       G
And you’ll only shine for a certain time
            C               D  
Till you’re swallowed up in blue

[Chorus]
           C      G
And I said oh my, oh me
C  G      D
Oh me, oh my
          C          G       D        G
There’s a river that runs between the sun
        C               D
And the darkness of our lives
        C               G
You can hit the road or stay in bed
        C       G       D
You can sink or swim or fight
         C      G       D        G
But when all of this is said and done
         C              D             G
You gon’ walk so gently still into that night


     G              Em 
So I dove into that river
C       G      D
Again a second time
        C     G         D     G
And the water rolled on top of me
        C                D  
And the stars refused to shine

       G            Em 
Then I swam until I could not swim
      C         G      D
And I sank just like a stone
       C    G           D      G
When I woke again I was laying in
   C             D  
My bed inside my home

       G                 Em 
Then I walked out to the city streets
         C      G       D
With the voices high and bright
      C            G       D     G
And I breathed the air without a care
      C                D  
And I walked so gently still
          G
Into that light
