River – Leon Bridges

A simple, soulful tune from the incredible Leon Bridges. 
Best sung in a duet with a tambourine :)

Leon plays it live with a capo on the 4th fret, making G# and C# into easy E and A shapes 
respectively. 


[Intro]
G#       C# (Repeat)

[Verse]
G#
Been traveling these wide roads for so long
                        C#
My heart’s been far from you
                      G#
Ten-thousand miles gone


Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
              C#
Every part of me

But there is blood on my hands
                     G#
And my lips aren’t clean


In my darkness I remember
                   C#
Momma’s words reoccur to me

"Surrender to the good Lord
                           A#m
And he’ll wipe your slate clean"


[Chorus]
Take me to your river
   G#
I wanna go
      A#m        
Oh, go on

Take me to your river
  G#
I wanna know


[Verse]
Tip me in your smooth waters

I go in
         C#
As a man with many crimes

Come up for air
                 G#
As my sins flow down the Jordan

Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
              C#
Every part of me

But there is blood on my hands
                     A#m
And my lips aren’t clean


[Chorus]
Take me to your river
   G#
I wanna go
    A#m
Go on

Take me to your river
  G#
I wanna know


(Vocals) 
I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
G# - C# alternate
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know


[Chorus]
A#m
Take me to your river
   G#
I wanna go
                    A#m
Lord, please let me know

Take me to your river
  G#m
I wanna know

Hi great work, it sounds like it may be Abm in place of where you have Dbm. Love this song, thanks
