C                                     F              C
there's a house across the river but alas i cannot swim
C                                       D
and a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin
           C                          F             C
there's a house across the river but alas i cannot swim
C                                    D           C
I’ll live my life regretting that i never jumped in

C                                     F                C
there's a boy across the river with short black curly hair
C                               D
he wants to be my lover and i want to be his peer
           C                         F             C
there's a boy across the river but alas i cannot swim
C                               D           C
And i never will get to put my arms around him

F C F C F C C

C                                         F        C
there's a life across the river that was meant for me
C                                     D
instead i live my life in constant misery
C                                      F      C
there's a life across the river but i do not see
C                                    D         C
why i should please those who will never be pleased


F C F C F C C

Em                                    C         Em
there is gold across the river but i dont want none
Em                                     F        C
there is gold across the river but i dont want none
          Em               F               C
gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun
          Em                D               C
gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun
C                                     F          C
there is gold across the river but i dont want none
C                                    D
i would rather be tried than held up by a golden gun
C                 C          F          C                    
saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
C                 C          F          C 
saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
C                 C          F          C
saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun

I'm playing very quietly unamped as it's 2am, but I *think* all the Ds sound better as Gs.

Looks good otherwise, thanks. And apologies if I'm talking crap.

All Ds to Gs, Em's to Am's and then spot on!
