“The City and the River”- The Rescues
Transcribed by Robin Young

Note: The way that the chords are played varies a lot. There are different 
inversions in the verses (C-/G, Eb/Bb, Eb/G) as well as chords being played 
without thirds (C-5, Ab5, Eb5). It wouldn’t be possible to articulate all of these 
differences from line to line, but it’s a cool sound to vary it up sometimes.

INTRO:
C-  Ab  Eb (2x)

VERSE 1:
C-
Two centuries
Ab       Eb
Since I first saw you weave
        C-           Ab Eb 
Like a dance around my heart
          C-
You grew wild when it rained
Ab     Eb
I dug deep into the slate
         C-       Ab Eb
So we’d never be apart

CHORUS:
  Bb             Ab        Eb
You, you always stayed by me
  Bb                 Ab    Eb
You, you wander but never leave
    C-              Bb       Ab   Eb
And I’m the one who watches over you
F-7
That’s what I was built to do

C- Ab Eb (2x)

VERSE 2:
          C-
Laid the track, poured the streets
Ab       Eb
Ties of glass and concrete
    C-                        Ab  Eb Eb9 Eb
In silence, you watched what I became
    C-
You lifted me up
Ab        Eb
Said I’d stand at the top
    Eb9      C-               Ab  Eb
And all the world would know my name

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
F-7 Eb Bb (2x)

F-7     Eb
  Love, don’t you weep
Bb
  You know we cannot keep
F-7           Eb      Bb
  This moment here together
F-7            Eb
  If you could only see
Bb
  The beauty that I see
F-7       Eb     Bb
  We’d go on forever

VERSE 3:
       C-
And as I turn to rust
Ab        Eb
Start to crack, betray us
  C-             Ab      Eb
You, you haven’t aged a day
           C-
When it’s time for me to go
Ab       Eb
Promise me that you’ll flow
Ebmaj7/G   C-   Ab           Eb
Until the ocean washes you away

CHORUS:
  Bb             Ab        Eb
You, you always stayed by me
  Bb                 Ab     Eb
You, you wander but never leave
    C-              Bb       Ab   Eb
And I’m the one who watches over you
C-              Bb       Ab   Eb
I’m the one who watches over you
C-              Bb       Ab   Eb
I’m the one who watches over you
F-7
That’s what I was built to do

C-  Ab  Eb
