                             RIVER - AkronFamily
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Erik
E-mail: erik.nmgn@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

What a killer tune! And that chorus, man, brilliant! I updated the other tab by Soupey,
it had some chords wrong and I added some basic tabs if you want to play it the way it
sounds on CD. It's not that useful when you're playing alone, so in the meantime just 
learn section A1, B and the chords to the bridge (denoted at section C and G) and you'll 
be fine!

A1 INTRO/VERSE I (chords)
    F(x81010108)
    And you are no longer a river to me
    And you are no longer a river to me
                Bb(688766)               F
    Though your coursing remain eager to acquaint me
    And you are no longer a docile stream
    And you are no longer a docile stream
                Bb                       F
    Though your patience proves you into ease

G BRIDGE II (a combination of Fig. 1, Fig. 2, the whole BRDIGE I, so just chords given)
        Dm                  F
    And once this spark-met kindling
       Bb              F                 (repeat this chord-sequence to the end)
    Forgets its gentle ambling
    Becoming heat, becoming steam
    Becoming luminescent glee
    Atoms splinter, sparkling
    Alive and nimble symmetry
    And all along, this glistening
    Blankets we and everything
    Shadows dance triumphantly
    A wordless whisper sighs and pleas
    Little deaths envelope thee
    You and I and a flame makes three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
    You and I and a flame make three
