Intro: G Em C D G

             G                           Em
I stare at a picture but there's nothing for it
              C                     D             G
I pull on the bottle and watch this river roll on by
               G                     Em
Trying to find purpose trying to see meaning
               C            D                            G
Trying to make sense of the nonsense that I've called my life


                G                    D
Cause only this river can bear me to safety
          Em                 C     Em  C  Em  C  D
Only this river can bear me away


             G                          Em
See them all work and play there on the other bank
              C              D            G
Warm in their houses while I face my cold alone
                G                                      Em
Guess I've been drinking away to keep the wolves of my mind at bay
           C       D                         G
but if you run you die I'm just too tired to care


                G                    D
Cause only this river can bear me to safety
          Em                 C     Em  C  Em  C  D
Only this river can bear me away
           G                      D
I feel Her flowing, flowing right through me
           Em                   C
I hear Her whispers drowning my words
          G
Only this river
          Em
Only this river,
          C         D            G
Only this river can save me from myself 

             G
Where did my soul go?
             D
Where did my spirit hide?
               Em                            C
Why won't they rescue me from the pain in my mind?

          G                   D
Only this river in all of her glory
          Em                C
Only this river can bear me away
          G                Em               G                Em               G
Only this river, only this river, only this river . . .
