Intro (**you can see the small riff I've found at the end of the tab) :

Dm Dm Am G G Dm Dm
Dm Dm Am G G Dm Dm
G G Dm Dm Am G Dm Dm
G G Dm Dm Am G G  G

Dm

          Am                     G                         Dm
Down here everyone says that the River People don't really belong here.
Dl     Am                              G                      Dm
I know what it's like to be a stranger and divide a town beside a frontier.
G                                   Dm
    People want your business and little more
Am                G                    Dm
    I've watched shadows lengthen from a closed door.


Dm              Am                        G                   
              Dm
Mountains wide, nothing is clearer to the River People than what the others try and hide.
Dm         Am                              G                  
             Dm
You spoke, pushed your chair back at the meeting and I could tell that you were petrified.
G                                          Dm
    You said the best people can suddenly oppose
Am               G                     Dm
    The sight of good will and then it arose.
G                                       Dm
    Two people, four people crossed the floor
Am                 G                  Dm
    I saw children run, I wept amidst the uproar

Dm    Am G  Dm
Dm    Am G  Dm


Dm [STOP]   Am                  G                            Dm
Around here your stranded face before the moonlight, the color of the sea.
Dm [STOP] Am                  G                            Dm
You came up to the house after swimming on sunset and the flattened sea.
G                               Dm
   The sky had opened, it had gone bust
Am            G                          Dm
   You and I watched the River People swim before us
G                                  Dm
   The sky had opened, it had gone bust
Am            G                          Dm
   You and I watched the river people swim before us

Dm    Am G  Dm
Dm    Am G  Dm


G                                          Dm
    You said the best people can suddenly oppose
Am               G                     Dm
   The sight of good will and then it arose.
G                                       Dm
    Two people, four people crossed the floor
Am                 G                  Dm
    I saw children run, I wept amidst the uproar


Dm
   Down here . . . Am G  Dm
Dm
   You came . . . Am G Am G Dm Am Dm

[THE END] : Dm



For each chord at the beginning, I heard something like :

         Dm                Am              G

e |-------1----------------0---------------3-------------|
B |-----3---3------------1---1-----------3---3-----------|
G |---2-------2--------2-------2-------0-------0---------|
D |-0----------------------------------------------------|
A |------------------0-----------------------------------|
E |----------------------------------3-------------------|

OK, the tab is OK...:)
Several days ago, I was searching for this tab on the internet and I haven't found it, so... I made one...:)
Today, when I see your's, it's the same, I just put harp tab into it... So the conclusion is: Excellent work my friend..:)

P.S. This song is so good, and it deserves to be heard!!:)
