I went down to the river
 flowing out unto the sea
 on my way to the ocean
 let the spirit swallow me.
 
Cm                     A#
I got low down in the water
          D#                    F
 I let the current guide my bones
Cm                        A#
 Iíve got nine kinds of trouble
          F
 Iím just trying to find my way home.

--Riff--

Cm                          A# 
Over twenty-some years of living
        D#                 F
 and a thousand wasted days
Cm                       A#
 I have loved a lot of women
      F
 Many times Iíve gone wrong ways
 

And I came down to the water
 For a dip. To cleanse my soul.
 They keep telling me that Iím just a babe
 But baby, why do I feel so old?
 
Cm                      F
This is the verge of a breakthrough
         D#                      G
 itís a fine line that cannot be bent
Cm                      F
 and I felt like I river run dry
                       D#                      G  
but I donít know where all of the rainwater went
 
And I believed we were all dead or dying
 but I see different in the blue light
 there is no such thing as a dawn or a dusk
 it is daylight until it is night
 
Youíve got to fight through the dimming
 Youíve got to run into the west
 Youíve go to rage against the dying of the light
 Live for the moment thatís left
 
G#
ĎCause there is no such thing as a dying man
Cm
 Weíre alive ítill the moment weíre dead
G#
 and a drowning man is just a living man
G 
Who hasnít run out of his last bit of breath.

G# - Cm - G# - G 
 
I went down to the river
 flowing out unto the sea
 on my way to the ocean
 let the spirit swallow me.
 
I got low down in the water
 I let the current guide my bones
 Iíve got nine kinds of trouble
 Iím just trying to find my way home.
