[Intro] 
G  D/E  G/D C (x4)  D G/B

[Verse 1]
D   G/B          G   Em7 
I looked out across
D    C         G  Em7  D  
The river today,
C        G                 Em7           D
 saw a city in the fog and an old church tower
           C            G  Em7  D  
Where the seagulls play,
C         G         Em7      D       C
 saw the sad shire horses walking home
          G         D  
In the sodium light
C          G            Em7
  two priests on the ferry
         D             C       G        Em7  D
October geese on a cold winter's night

[Chorus]
   Em 
All this time,
     A            C
The river flowed
     Dsus D       G  D/E  G/D C
Endlessly to the sea.

[Verse 2]
             G         Em7
Two priests came round 
D  C          G     Em7 D
  our house tonight
C      G            Em7              D              
  One young, one old, to offer prayers for the dying
    C           G      Em7  D  
To serve the final rite,
C         G            Em7  D 
 One to learn, one to teach,
C               G             D C    
 Which way the cold wind blows
     G               Em7              D
And fussing and flapping in priestly black
                   G   Em7  D
Like a murder of crows

[Chorus]
        Em         
And all this time,
    A            C
The river flowed
    Dsus   D      G    
Endlessly to the sea.
        Em
If I had my way
       A7sus          A7    C
take a boat from the river 
        Dsus          D  Dsus  D           G  D/E G/D C
and I'd bury the old man, I'd bury him at sea

[Verse 3]
                 G    Em7
Blessed are the poor, 
D  C                G          Em7  D
  for they shall inherit the earth
C  G                Em7     D              C           G    Em7 D           
  Better to be poor than a fat man in the eye of the needle
C                G          Em7      D  
 As these words were spoken I swear 
C            G               D 
 I hear The old man laughing,
C       G                 Em7        D               C           G  Em7  D
 "What good is a used up world, and how could it be Worth having"

[Chorus]
        Em    
All this time 
    A           C
the river flowed
    Dsus D         G         D/E G     
Endlessly like a silent tear
        Em        A
All this time the river flowed
C            Dsus    D
 Father, if Jesus exists,
     Dsus        D            G    D/E 
Then how come he never lived here.
G/D    C     G  D/E    
yeah   yeah            
G/D    C     G  D/E 
yeah   yeah
G/D    C     D  G/B  D    
yeah   yeah 

[Verse 4]
G/B            A  F#m7 E 
  Teachers told 
D           A               F#m7 E
 the Romans built this place
D                 A            F#m7    E              D            A  F#m7  E
 They built a wall and a temple, an edge of the empire Garrison town,
D                   A      F#m7       E             D  
 They lived and they died, they prayed to their gods
          A           F#m7         E
But the stone gods did not make a sound
D              A          F#m7      E             D  
 And their empire crumbled, 'til all that was left
D              A            
 Were the stones the workmen found

[Chorus]
    F#m        
All this time
    B             D
The river flowed
           Esus     E           A  
in the falling light of a Northern sun
    F#m        
If I had my way
        B7                D
take a boat from the river
       Esus           E
Men go crazy in congregations,
       Esus           E         A  E/F# Esus D
They only get better one by one

[Outro]
        A  E/F#  Esus D
One by one
        A     E/F#  Esus D
One by one by one
         A  E/F#  Esus D
One by one

[Fade out]
                A  F#m7 E D
I looked out across...
