(R and C MacDonald) from the 2016 Album The Story


[Intro]

G    G    G    G


[Verse 1]

G                         Em                      G
I'm backing up the lorry, can't wait for night to come
G                              Em               G
I'm sweeping out the back yard on a Friday afternoon
G                              Em              G6          Em
We'll gather round the players and we'll head off for the stars
C                  D       Dsus4         G
Pack the van with poetry, drums and the guitars


[Verse 2]

G                                Em             G
We'll take Billy for the whisky, Willie for the door
G                                      Em                 G
We'll take Mary Kate and Lizzy for the dancing round the floor
G                           Em         G6     Em
We'll turn this empty hall into city full of lights
C                    D                 Dsus4           G
And lift the summer spirits through the passing of the night


[Chorus]

C          D            C          G
There was laughing, and there were tears
C                  Em            Bm     D
There were so many shattered hopes and dreams
C             D            C   G
But there was treasure and 40 years
G             D               G
In the place where the rivers run


[Verse 3]

G                             Em                  G
We'll hammer on the two-step, we'll lay it on the snare
G                        Em               G
Romancing the accordion, waltzing out the aires
G                        Em          G           Em
These sacred swaying anthems, within our lover's grasp
C                   D            Dsus4            G
Stripping down the willow to the footsteps of the past


[Chorus]

C          D            C          G
There was laughing, and there were tears
C                  Em            Bm     D
There were so many shattered hopes and dreams
C             D            C   G
But there was treasure and 40 years
G             D               G
In the place where the rivers run


[Instrumental]

G   C   G   D   
G   C   G   D   G


[Bridge]

G                           C          Em
We were kings and queens, the reels go round
Em7                            C       D
It's the badge of our culture, say it loud
          C          D           C            G6
And it's all in the gift of the young and the proud
G                      D      G
In the place where the rivers run


[Verse 4]

G                                Em              G
We're loading out the back door, now the hour is come
G                                 Em                    G
Driving through the black hills with the red and rising sun
G                               Em      G6       Em
There's a river and a distance, far as eyes can see
C                 D                 Dsus4    G

[Chorus]

C          D            C          G
There was laughing, and there were tears
C                  Em            Bm     D
There were so many shattered hopes and dreams
C             D            C   G
But there was treasure and 40 years
G             D               G
In the place where the rivers run
G             D               G
In the place where the rivers run
G             D               G
In the place where the rivers run
