[Intro]

C   F  Dm G 
Am  Dm  G  F 


[Verse 1]

C                            F
It's three miles to the river that would carry me away,
Dm                               G
and two miles to the dusty street that I saw you on today,
C                                F
It's four miles to my lonely room where I'm gonna hide my face,
Dm                                       G
and about half a mile to the downtown bar that I ran from in disgrace
Am
Lord how long have I got to keep on running?
Dm
Seven hours, seven days or seven years?
G                                     F
All I know is since you've been gone, feel like I'm drowning

in a river
                       C
Drowning in a river of tears
F
Drowning in a river
Dm                      G                      C
Feel like I'm drowning, drowning in a river of tears


[Verse 2]

C                                     F
In three more days, I leave this town, in disappear without a trace,
Dm                                G
a year from now maybe settle down, where no one knows my face,
C                                 F
I wish that I could hold you one more time to ease the pain,
Dm                                G
But my times run out and I got to go, got to run away again
Am
Still I catch myself thinking 
Dm
one day I'll find my way back here
G                                     F
And you'll save me from drowning,
                      C
Drowning in a river of tears
F
Drowning in a river
Dm                      G                      C
Feel like I'm drowning, drowning in a river of tears

Try Dm7 in place of the Dm. I think it sounds better.
