Betty came by on her way
                        G#
Said she had a word to say
                   Cadd9
'Bout things today and the falling leaves
Cm9                         Bbmadd4
Said she hadn't heard the news
                         G#
Hadn't had the time to choose
             Cadd9
A way to lose what she believes

Gonna see the riverman
Gonna tell him all I can
About the plan for my return
If he tells me all he knows
'Bout the way his river flows
And all night shows in summertime

Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay, she wasn't sure
For when she thought of summer end
Calling for her mind again
She lost the pain, and stayed for more

Gonna see the riverman
Gonna tell him all I can
About the ban on feeling free
If he tells me all he knows
'Bout the way his river flows
I don't suppose there's one for me
