Lissie - Oh Mississippi chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Tuning: EADGBE

An awesome song from an incredible talent

Depending on the version, the key changes... but on the official studio recording it's
tuning with capo at position 1. The chord shapes here (play all the chords open!) are
to the open tuning on the guitar. Don't forget the lovely little passing note - the D/Db 
the refrain, it really adds further to the melancholy of this beautiful song

          G
Oh mighty river
          D
The Mississippi’s
          A
Turbulent waters
           D
Lull me to sleep

               G
Please take my hand
          D
I will go gently
           A
Your arms around me
             D   D/Db
You’ll me my man

               Bm
The leaves are changing
G              D
  I cross this road
           E        E7
To make my last walk
                A
In that warm sunshine

          G
Oh mighty river
          D
The Mississippi
           A
Oh all the trouble
                D
Your banks have seen

            G
Carry these stories
              D
From north to south
             A
Around these parts
                D
You’re westward bound

= inst = G D A D/Db

                 Bm
Oh the factory’s closing
                   G
Kids have grown so fast
              E        E7
Lift up their woe please
            A
As you flow past


           G
Oh endless river
               D
You’ve seen it all
            A
Now do your waters
                  D   /E /Gb
Have room for one more

           G
Oh endless river
            D
As you transcend
               A
Please take me with you
              D
Far from this land

               A
Please take me with you
              D
Far from this land

Now all we have to do is learn to sing like Lissie(!)... I hope I've done it justice!
