 Seein Christy Moore playing it at the point this is how he plays it
North and South of the river

 capo first fret

   intro G,D,C x2  
             G            D
   I want to reach out over the loch
   And feel your hand across the water
     G                     D
   Walk with you along an unapproved road
   Not lookin' over my shoulder
   G                D                    Em           C
   I want to see, I want to hear, to understand your fear.
             G         D            C
   But we're north and south of the river
I've been doing it wrong all of my life
This holy town has turned me over.
A man on the run from what he didn't understand
As the wind from the Lough blew colder and colder.
There was a badness that had it's way,
Love was not lost it just got mislaid.
   G         D            C
   North and south of the river.
   North and south of the river.
Can we stop playing these old tattoos,
Darling I don't have the answer.
I want to meet you where you are,
I don't need you to surrender.
There is no feeling so alone
As when the one you're hurting is your own.
   G         D            C
   North and south of the river.
   G                D
Some high ground is not worth taking,
  Em                 C
Some connections are not worth making.
            G                   D     
There's an old church bell no longer ringing,
         Em                C
And some old songs are not worth singing.
   G         D            C
   North and south of the river.
   North and south of the river.
