[Intro]

C G C F
C G Am F


[Verse 1]

 C         G             F
All that I have is a river
     Am                 E
The river is always my home
      C         F        Am           F
Lord, take me away for I just cannot stay
        C          G           F
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones


[Chorus]

    C        G           C         F
The water sustains me without even trying
    C            G            Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
        F      C
With my dyy...ing


[Verse 2]

 C         G             F
Please help me build a small boat
     Am                 E
One that’ll ride on the flow
       C            F
Where the river runs deep
       Am           F
And the larger fish creep
    C          G           F
I’m glad of what keeps me afloat


[Chorus]

    C        G           C         F
The water sustains me without even trying
    C            G            Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
        F      C
With my dyy...ing


[Verse 3]

     C         G       F
Now deeper the water I sail
     Am                    E
And faster the current I’m in
      C           F
That each night brings the stars
        Am           F
And the song in my heart
      C             G           F
Is a tune for the journeyman’s tale


[Chorus]

    C        G           C         F
The water sustains me without even trying
    C            G            Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
        F    
With my dying


[Bridge]

 E                            Am
Now the land that I knew is a dream
 E                                  Am
And the line on the distance grows faint
    C          F          C         F
So wide is my river, the horizon a sliver
     C          G          Am      F
The artist has run out of paint


[Verse 4]

           C           G             F
Where the blue of the sea meets the sky
        Am                       E
And the big yellow sun leads me home
    C          F
I’m everywhere now
    Am        F
The way is a vow
       C            G             F
To the wind of each breath by and by


[Chorus]

    C        G           C         F
The water sustains me without even trying
    C            G            Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
        F      C
With my dyy...ing


[Outro]

(Played like the chorus)
C G C F C G Am F C (x2)

Finally a proper tab for this with the correct lyrics, thank you very much! Just one very minor flaw: In the album version there's no chorus between the bridge ("Now the land that...") and the next verse ("Where the blue of the...") but otherwise perfect!

Perfect, except for one bung chord..
this..
C G Am
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones
Should be..
C G F
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones

I'm getting that from this acoustic version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4QQ7HYYdWw

But it may be right on the recording..apart from that..
*****! :D

According to the acoustic version...

C G Am
To the wind of each breath by and by

Should be:

C Am F
To the wind of each breath by and by
