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

Cm Cm Gm F F Cm Cm
Cm Cm Gm F F Cm Cm
F F Cm Cm Gm F Cm Cm
F F Cm Cm Gm F F  F

Cm

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


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

Cm    Gm F  Cm
Cm    Gm F  Cm


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

Cm    Gm F  Cm
Cm    Gm F  Cm


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


Cm
   Down here . . . Gm F  Cm
Cm
   You came . . . Gm F Gm F Cm Gm Cm

[THE END] : Dm



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

         Cm                Gm              F

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