C                                     F              C
There's a house across the river but alas, I cannot swim
C                                     G7
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                                   G7           C
I'll live my life regretting that I never jumped in

F C F C F C C 

C                                     F                C
There's a boy across the river with short black curly hair
C                              G7
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                               G7          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                                    G7
Instead I live my life in constant misery
C                                      F      C
There's a life across the river but I do not see
C                                   G7        C
Why I should please those who will never be pleased


F C F C F C C

Am                                    F         Am
There is gold across the river but I don't want none
                                      F         C
There is gold across the river but I don't want none
          Dm               F               C
Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun
          Dm               F               C
Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun
C                                     F          C
There is gold across the river but I don't want none
C                                    G7
I would rather be tried than held up by a golden gun
        C                     F                    C           
Saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
                              F                    C
Saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
                              F                    C
Saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun

Not sure about the Dm but it sounds good.
I like the G7 sound although i don't think that is what it is. It does add a nice touch though... something extra that wasn't there before. Thanks for posting, it's a great song!
