Missy Higgins  The River

Verse 1

Dmaj7
She ran until face was numb with cold

Gmaj7
And wore a cotton gown that blazed the night untold

Dmaj7
She ran until her feet refused to hold

Gmaj7
So heavy a heart for someone merely ten years old


Pre chorus:

Dmaj7
And when she reached the river

Dmaj7
Her knees began to shiver

Gmaj7
Her head with pounding voices from home

Dmaj7
Behind her was a vision,

Dmaj7
A painful apparition 

Gmaj7
Of a darker world that no one should know

Chorus:

(Em7, F#m7)

                      Bm7                 Gmaj7    Em7                     Bm7          
Somebody's bed will never be warm again the river will keep this friend

(Em7, F#m7)

                        Bm7                     Gmaj7   Em7               Dmaj7
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again no never again

Verse 2:

She dived beneath the water's icy skin, 
Hoping the cold would kill the smell of angry gin, 
And her eyes grew wider than they'd ever been 
Just wishing the numbness to cut deeper with its pins. 
And as her body lay there she decided to stay there 
Till darkness came to pull her away. 
And beautifully she sank as up river was the bank 
Where some bodiless troubles would stay.
