Dadd9                   Gadd9
Though the river flows gently to the sea,
C6(no3)         Gadd9   Dadd9
  He was on the shore, rooted like a tree,
Dadd9                     Gadd9
 She was here, and there, riding on the waves,
C6(no3)            Gadd9               Dadd9
Through it all she heard his call, and gave it all she gave!


A                            Gadd9(type2)
   And though their love was hanging on a limb,
    Dadd9                     Emsus4   F#m                    Gadd9(type2)
She taught him how to dance--------------------, and start a - gain,
A                            Gadd9(type2)
    And though their love was hanging on a limb,
    Dadd9                         Emsus4            F#m    Gadd9(type2)   A

   Dadd9              Gadd9
And when the melody, through the window called,
   C6(no3)         Gadd9          Dadd9
It echoed in the courtyard, and whispered in the halls,
   Dadd9                            Gadd9
He played it through the night, she knew he had to go,
           C6(no3)        Gadd9        Dadd9
There was something about freedom...he thought he didn't know!


A                            Gadd9(type2)
   And though their love was hanging on a limb,
