Only a River
Written by Josh Ritter, Bob Weir
From Bob Weir's album "Blue Mountain"
Drop D tuning

[Verse]
D          G              D
Well I was born up in the mountains
Em     A              D
Raised up in a desert town
D     G             D        
And I never saw the ocean
Em        A                 D
Til I was close to your age now

[Chorus]
   Bm       G            D
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
        Bm   G           D
Hey hey hey, You rolling river
   Bm       G            D       
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
G       D
Hey hey hey 
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       Bm
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right

[Verse]
D         G                D
I'm going back to San Angelo
Em            A                     D
The ground is hard and the county's dry
D             G               D
But I'm gonna get my fill somehow
Em         A                   D
River's of corn, and wheat and rye

[Chorus]
   Bm       G            D
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
        Bm   G           D
Hey hey hey, You rolling river
   Bm       G            D       
Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
G       D
Hey hey hey 
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       Bm
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right

D          G     D
Oh red red river valley
Em         A                        D
Will she remember all the things we said
D              G                    D
And what's the chance that she'll remember
Em        A                   D
All those nights in the river bed

Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
G       D
Hey hey hey 
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       Bm
Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right

       G                       D
Only a river gonna make things right

Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       D 
Only a river gonna make things right

Only a river gonna make things right
       G                       Bm 
Only a river gonna make things right
