Play the E for 1 1/2 measures, the A2 for a 1/2 measure the A for a 1/4 measure, the G
for a 1/4 measure, the E for a 1/2 measure, the A for a 1/2 measure, the G for a 1/2
measure, and the Cmaj7 starts the verse. The last A and G chords are played in 2/4 time, 
so even though they are played for a 1/2 measure each, they are equal to a 1/4 measure
compared to the rest of the chords in the song.

Intro: E A2 A G E A G Cmaj7

Each chord in the verse is played for a whole measure except for the A2 G Cmaj7 part.
The E before that is played for 1 1/2 measures, the A2 for a 1/2 measure, the G for a 1/2
measure and the Cmaj7 starts the next line. The last Cmaj7 of the verse is played for 
3/4 of a measure and the Bsus4 is played for a 1/4 measure.

Verse 1:
                            D                             Cmaj7
The long awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
                                        D                            Cmaj7
They've carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
                               D
And like the rain, I have been carried here
                    E          A2 G Cmaj7
To where the river flows yeah
                          D                             Cmaj7
My heart is racing and my knees are weak as walk to the edge
                              D                             Cmaj7
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
                           D                                 Cmaj7
And in the rush I hear a voice that's telling me it time to take the leap of faith
    Bsus
So here I go

In the chorus, the E-B-C#m7 are all played for a 1/2 measure, but the A-B are played for
1/4 measure each. At the end of the chorus, the E is played for 1 1/2 measures, the A2
for a 1/2 measure, the E for 1 1/2 measures, the A2 for a 1/2 measure, the A for a 1/4 
measure, the G for a 1/4 measure, the E for a 1/2 measure, the A for a 1/2 measure, the G
for a 1/2 measure, and the Cmaj7 starts the next verse and is played for a whole 
measure. The last A and G chords are played in 2/4 time, so even though they are played for a 
1/2 measure each, they are equal to a 1/4 measure compared to the rest of the chords in the song.

Chorus:
E             B            C#m7
 I'm diving in I'm going deep
            A      B
In over my head I wanna be
E                 B              C#m7
 Caught in the rush lost in the flow
             A     B
In over my head I wanna go
E               B
 The river's deep the river's wide
C#m7         A    B
The river's water is alive
Cadd9        D2             E  A2 E A2 A G E A G Cmaj7
 So sink or swim I'm diving in

Verse 2:
Cmaj7                   D                             Cmaj7
There is a supernatural power in this mighty river's flow
                           D                            Cmaj7
It can bring the dead to life and it can fill an empty soul
                            D                             E             A2 G Cmaj7
And give our heart the only thing worth living and worth dying for yeah
Cmaj7                    D                           Cmaj7
But we will never the awesome power of the grace of God
                           D                           Cmaj7
Until we let ourselves get swept away into this holy flood
                                D
So if you take my hand we'll close our eyes and count to three
     Cmaj7                      Bsus
And take the leap of faith come on let's go!

(Chorus)


Bridge: (Played the same way as the chorus)
Cadd9        D2
 So sink or swim I'm diving in
Cadd9        D2
 So sink or swim I'm diving in
Cadd9        D2 (Let ring)
 So sink or swim

I'm diving in

E  B   C#m7  A B
 Whoa
E  B   C#m7  A     B
 Whoa         I'm diving in
E                     Bsus
 (I'm diving in, come on let's go!)

(Chorus 2x)
