River chords (for the acoustic guitar)
Joni Mitchell  1971

Piano intro

C Am  C Am  C Am  G

     F         C
It's coming on Christmas 
        F            C
They're cutting down trees 
        F          C
They're putting up reindeer 
                     F       C
And singing songs of joy and peace 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
 
    F        C
But it don't snow here 
   F            C
It stays pretty green 
             F             C
I'm going to make a lot of money 
                            F     C
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 

  F                     G
I wish I had a river so long 
        C                F Am Dm   Dm7
I would teach my feet to fly       wooh . .
  C            F             G          C
I wish I had a river I could skate away on 
C         G    C
I made my baby cry

piano break

   F             C
He tried hard to help me 
             F         C
You know, he put me at ease 
       F           C
And he loved me so naughty 
        F           C
Made me weak in the knees 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 

    F          C
I'm so hard to handle 
    F               C
I'm selfish and I'm sad 
         F                 C
Now I've gone and lost the best baby 
     F      C
That I ever had 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 

  F                     G
I wish I had a river so long 
        C                F Am Dm   Dm7
I would teach my feet to fly       wooh . .
  C            F             G          C
I wish I had a river I could skate away on 
C         G            C
I made my baby say goodby

     F         C
It's coming on Christmas 
        F            C
They're cutting down trees 
        F          C
They're putting up reindeer 
                     F       C
And singing songs of joy and peace 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I was looking for the Sarah McLaughlin version of this song. I transposed it up 4 1/2 steps and then capo'd it at the 3rd fret. PERFECT! Thanks so much!

F at the end of that line, not C
