Blue Rodeo
Mystic River
Chords and tablature by Kalvin Clauer

Verses (I like to use alternating bass notes as I strum the chords
	especially on the Am --A and low E notes back and forth)
G                             Am
I can't believe it's true I finally got you here
G                             Am
I've been waiting for this moment for some years
         Bm          C
I've been torn down enough to know
         Bm          C
Everyone goes through this door
Cmin7             A(maj)
Just before their lives explode
C                 D
Come in here with a heavy load

Verse two played as above:

Walking down the road watching the day begin
Radio song is playing off in a distant wind
But you can feel it it's a gentle love
Coming out soft from the windows above
Just when you have had enough
Here comes the world you've been dreaming of

Chorus

Chorus Sequence:
every time you walk them down as so:

Chorus Part 1: (First time through played alone)
G             Em7
Oh my my the Mystic River
C
She takes your heart
         A7sus4     D
And you will forgive her
G              Em7
Lay me down beside the water
C                   A7sus4     D
I look across at the sons and daughters

Chorus Part 2: (Not on first time through)

The lyrics change to: 'I miss my sons I miss my daughter now'
and play the chorus sequence on the lyric 'now':

G walk down     Em7    C  A7sus4  Dsus4
Now              Oooh now...

Note: the remaining chords are all played with the top two strings fretted at the 3rd fret
                 Ohhhh    Oooooooh
C9         Dsus4       Em7      A7sus4
C9         F   C        G        G


Verse (as above)

Sun comes up each day to chase away the moon
Even the stars at night they fade away too soon
You can't do much about the trouble life brings
Cut all the lines so the phones don?t ring
But stay here once from spring to spring
Watching the ice melt the mornings sing

Chorus (both parts)

Verse (same as first verse)
There's a tree that grows out in the burning sands
Never a drop of rain that nobody understands
You can push me I don't mind
Leave me out here and I'll be fine
Cause everyone's gonna have their time
Up or down honey you decide

Chorus (both parts), and:
The last chorus ends slightly different.
in place of two bars of G at end, do one bar and
then the C F C phrase a few times to end the song.
