River by Ibeyi

I can't believe no one has done this song yet! Thus I take it upon myself to help fellow Ibeyi lovers out. 
This is my first tab so might not be 100% correct! 
Please leave any helpful suggestions in the comments. [please be nice] 
Also, I played it along with the song and will have to say that the guitar compliments it more than blends in
please keep that in mind since there is no guitar on the actual track. 

Enjoy! 

Standard tuning
Capo: 1 

[CHORUS]
Am              G
Come to your river 
       Dm                Am
I will come to your river
     Am                 G    Dm  F
I will come to your river

Am              G
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
       Dm                Am
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
      Am                G
I will come to your river
        Dm         F
Wash my soul again  


Am         G
Carry away my dead leaves
       Dm                      Am
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters 
Am             G
Sink my pains and complains
        Dm               F
Let the river take them, river drown them
Am         G
My ego and my blame
       Dm                      Am
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Am                G
Those all means are so ashamed
Dm                       F
Let the river take them, river drown them

Hi !
Thanks for your work on that tab. It really helped me to get into this song, but everytime I would play it, something would "feel" a bit wierd.
I'm not really sure, but it has something to do with how they sing "I will come to your river" (second sentence of each verse).

Whenever I play it the was you wrote it down, it goes Gm then Dm (with capo 1). While you play that Dm, they sing (on "Come", and "River) what appears to be a G (without capo). I may have misunderstood your tab, but it seems you have to sing a G while playing (without capo) a D#m, which feels quite awkward.

I tried to wrap my head around this and ended up drying Dm / Am / Gm / Dm (without capo). Could you maybe try give it a try and decide whether it seems more or less accurate to you ?

Thanks !

I'm not really sure about G/Gm and Major/Minor in general re: the alternative chords I submitted to you !
