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.
