           Dm               A
The dying light was nearly dead
       C#m                          A
By the time we reached the water’s edge.
            Dm                    F
We saw the river beating on the river bank
         C                      E
For the way that it held it in her riverbed.

      B          A
It’s cold, it’s dark,
               C                  E
It’s not for people with uneasy hearts.
                B                   A
But if you’re with me on the other side,
                C   G             B
Strike up the band;   we have survived.

A E A E x3

             F#
And do they beat that drum to get you back home,

Or do they beat it to keep you away?

            Dm                A
Don’t be surprised at your regrets.
            C#m                             A
Don’t be surprised that the water made you wet.
            Dm
There’s a shallow down river
            F
Where the water will forgive you,
      C                   E
Soft skin, your lukewarm beds

       B             A
Follow me, oh follow me;
  C                     E
Allow me to play the voyager.
             B
I’ll try to keep you as dry
          A
As the hollowed out tree that
      C         G          B
You would be wrapped in another man’s fur

           A  E A E
So take a dive
           A  E A E
Oh take a dive
            A            E                  A              E
Oh take it out on the stepping stones that make the water lie
           C    E          C   E
So take a dive, oh take a dive

       A     E          A     E
Ohohohoh-ohohoh, ohohohoh-ohohoh

           C  E         C           E
Take that hair  out of your damned eyes
            A        E
While the waves are rain
         A          E       
And the sum you'll pay.

         F#
Do they beat that drum to get you back home,

Or do they beat it to keep you away?

         C#m                     E
Will you burn your bridges down

Singing lalalalalalala
         C#m                     E
Will you burn your bridges down

Singing lalalalalalala
         C#m                             E
Will you bang your drum to the blazing sound

Singing lalalalalalala

          G     B
Will you turn away?
              G    B
How can you turn away?
