Chords for Rivers by Frank Turner, tidying up some mistakes I found in others...


Intro:
E   D/C# G/A  E    (*2)

Verse 1:
    E                     D
Our history runs down our rivers
D               C#     E
Down our rivers to the sea
E                 D
Reminds us of the things that matter
D                  C#   E
Home and heart and history
    E                 D
And all our sins will be forgiven
D              C#     E
Washed away to set us free
       E               D
By the rivers that run through our homesteads
   D              C#  E
By myth and modal melody


Chorus:
F#                             A
I traced these rivers from the cities to the seas
   E                           B
To remind me of what I already know
F#                                A
I traced the shorelines through a thousand estuaries
    E                        B
To remind me an island is my home
                E
An island is my home


Play intro:
E   D/C# G/A  E   (*1)


Verse 2:
I travelled far across this country
Northumberland to Southern Downs
I wandered up the rolling Humber
And down the Thames to London town
Countless lives were lived and lingered
In the Cotswolds and the Fells
And left a tapestry called England
Of life and those who lived it well

Chorus

Play intro:
E   D/C# G/A  E   (*4)

Verse 3:
Around here the sky's a little closer
A little closer to the ground
It's hard for someone to get lost here
Harder still to get found
Though I've seen a thousand rivers
From the Mississippi to the Rhine
The only place I'd lay my hat down
Is by an English riverside

Chorus
F#                             A
I traced these rivers from the cities to the seas
   E                           B
To remind me of what I already know
F#                                A
I traced the shorelines through a thousand estuaries
    E                        B
To remind me an island is my home
                F#
An island is my home

F#          A
Hmm hmm hmm hmm

   E                   B
So place your trust in to the sea
     A                B
It's kept us safe for centuries
   E                    B
It shapes our shore and steadily
     A                   B
It's care has brought us calm
    E            B
And when I die I hope to be
A             B
Buried out in English seas
   E               B
So all that then remains of me
     A                 B
Will lap against these shores
                   E
'Til England is no more

Play intro:
E   D/C# G/A  E   (*1)


Hope you enjoy :-)
