ďThe City and the RiverĒ- The Rescues
Transcribed by Robin Young

Note: The way that the chords are played varies a lot. There are different 
inversions in the verses (C-/G, Eb/Bb, Eb/G) as well as chords being played 
without thirds (C-5, Ab5, Eb5). It wouldnít be possible to articulate all of these 
differences from line to line, but itís a cool sound to vary it up sometimes.

Two centuries

In silence, you watched what I became

You lifted me up
