Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a lovely duet with Laura Marling from Johnny's new album 'Been Listening'.

intro: C G C F
C G Am F


Verse:
C          G         F
All that I have is a river
    Am                E
The river is always my home
      C         F        Am          F
Lord, take me away for I just cannot stay
        C          G           Am
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones

(All other verses use same chords)

Chorus:
    C        G           C         F
The water sustains me without even trying
    C            G            Am
The water can't drown me, I'm done
        F     C
With my dyy...ing

Please help me build a small boat
One that'll ride on the flow
Where the river runs deep, and the larger fish creep
I'm glad of what keeps me afloat

The water sustains me without even trying
The water can't drown me, I'm done
With my dying

Now deeper the water I sail
And faster the current I'm in
So wide is my river, the horizon a sliver
The artist has run out of paint

The water sustains me without even trying
The water can't drown me, I'm done
With my dying

Where the blue of the sea meets the sky
And the big yellow sun leads me home
I'm everywhere now, the way is a vow
To the wind of each breath by and by

The water sustains me without even trying
The water can't drown me, I'm done
With my dying
