[Intro]
Dm C
A# A
    --2>3-3>2- (4th string)
Dm C
A# A
    --2>3-3>2- (4th string)

[Verse]
Dm             C
  By the river, through the summer
A#                A
                   ---2>3-3>2 (4th string)
  I waited patiently
Dm                  C
  You would promise, with all your power
A#                   A
  To come and rescue me

----7---5---3---2--  (6th string)
                  Dm
To come and set me free

Dm                    C
  And you were running through the valley
A#                     A
                        ---2>3-3>2 (4th string)
  Heading straight for me
Dm                    C
  My mind was shaking, but I was ready
A#                  A
  For you to rescue me

----7---5--3---2--  (6th string)
                  Dm
For you to set me free

[Chorus]

Dm
  Hooooo oohhh
C
  Hooooo oohhh
A#
  Hooooo oohhh
  A
   ------2>3-3>2 (4th string)
Heeyyyyy

[Verse]
Dm                 C
  I found a letter, floating in a bottle
A#                     A
                        -------2>3-3>2 (4th string)
  Being washed away to the sea
Dm                  C
  Penned by freedom, addressed to no one
A#                   A
 For who now could it be

[Chorus]
Dm
  Hooooo oohhh
C
  Hooooo oohhh
A#
  Hooooo oohhh
  A
   ------2>3-3>2 (4th string)
Heeyyyyy

[Verse]

Dm               C
  I saw a vision, some kind of apparition
A#                        A
                           ----2>3-3>2 (4th string)
  But it felt so real, so free
Dm                   C
  I had conversation, a faint deliberation
A#                     A  
  For who now could it be

----7-5-3--2---  (6th string)
               Dm
For anyone but me

[Chorus]

Dm
  Hooooo oohhh
C
  Hooooo oohhh
A#
  Hooooo oohhh
  A
   ------2>3-3>2 (4th string)
Heeyyyyy

Dm
  Hooooo oohhh
C
  Hooooo oohhh
A#
  Hooooo oohhh
  A
   ------2>3-3>2 (4th string)
Heeyyyyy


[Bridge]
Dm
  Something fell apart in me
C
  As I watched my soul depart from me
A#
  As I fade into eternity
  A
I'm free

(repeat bridge as many times as you like)
