The Wood Brothers - The Shore chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: The Wood Brothers
Song: The Shore
Transcribed by: J-Heck

Notes: There's some really interesting phrasing in this song vocally & musically.
The "DD" in the last verse and the finish are two quick strums on D that are held for 
the remainder of the measure.
I definitely recommend practising with the record to get the vocal phrasing just right.
Also notice that at the last chorus and coda hold the A chord longer, rather than 
stepping up to the B.



INTRO: |: A,,,B,,, A,,,B,,, :|

A     B                 A     B
  Sometimes I go to the river
A     B                 A     B
  Mmm, just to watch it flow
E    D            A      B
  It ripples & it dances
E       D                   A    B
  And I don't know where it goes

A,,, B,,,

A     B                 A     B
  You brought me to the edge
A       B               A      B
  But I held you to the ground
E   D              A      B
  I thought I knew better
E        D              A     B
  Then I let you in the water

A                  B
 Baby it's time to  take your hand and
D                    A    B
 Leave behind what I know
A                  B
 Baby it's time to follow you into
    D                           A     B
The river and let go of the shore.

A,,,B,,, A,,,B,,, A,,,B,,,

A  B                A     B
   Once I thought I knew
A      B                 A    B
   How everything should be
E          D           A     B
   I would damn up the river
E           D                A    B
 Blinded by what I wanted to see

A                  B
 Baby it's time to  take your hand and
D                    A    B
 Leave behind what I know
A                  B
 Baby it's time to follow you into
    D                           A     B
The river and let go of the shore.

A,,,B,,, A,,,B,,,

DD             A          B
    I tried to change you
DD               A     B
  I didn't understand
DD               A          B
   But now all I want to do
E            D               A
 Is get down on my knees and thank you

A                  B
 Baby it's time to  take your hand and
D                    A
 Leave behind what I know
A                  B
 Baby it's time to follow you into
    D                           A
The river and let go of the shore.
DD                    A
    And let go of the shore
DD                    A
    And let go of the shore
DD                    A
(No vocals, ritardando)
