The River


riff: [ D/A, A, Em, D ] 4x

She is a place, I've heard it spoken, [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
where people fish and dance and sing [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
a place they gather all together [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
she heard them call her Bawating [ D/A, A, ] 

and she might watch you meet your love or go to war and [ D, E, A, F#m ]
she might pull you down into her cold embrace [ D, E, A]
for these were days of dangerous rocks and rushing water [ D, E, A, F#m ]
when bravery and skill gave you your face [ D, E, ]

[ D/A, A, Em, D, D/A, A, Em, D ]

She is a mother with two daughters [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
Twin sisters split by a decree [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
You know she holds their names inside her [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
St. Mary's river, Sault Ste. Marie [ D/A, A, ]

And when you stand on one side you can see the other [ D, E, A, F#m ]
their mother all that's in between [ D, E, A]
Do you think those sisters ever think of one another [ D, E, A, F#m ]
as they watch their stories flow by endlessly? [D, E, D/A, A ]

I wonder should I think about her? [ A, Bm, D, E ]
All she ever seems to do is change [ A, Bm, D, E ]
Still she has got a kind of power [ A, Bm, D, E ]
There's something there that still remains [ A, Bm, D, E]

riff: [ D/A, A, Em, D ] 2x

She is a place, I've heard it spoken, [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
A place where people gather still [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
She gives them beauty and her power [ D/A, A, Em, D ]
She always did, she always will [ D/A, A, Em, D ]

riff: [ D/A, A, Em, D ] 2x

[ D/A, A ]
