Darrell Scott – River chords

Chords:
Transpose:
F C G AmIts been rainy and windy for seven days straight
Ive been going to bed early and getting up late I look out my window and its one shade of gray My wife and my kids dont have much to say A man out of work only gets in the way Oh the river is rising now one inch an hour And tonight well be lucky if we still have power But Ive got a flashlight, an oil lamp and Im ready to go And a fresh set of batteries for my sons radio If the dam really breaks, least well know where to go
Am C Am CRiver take me, river take me
Am C C F C GRiver take me far from trouble
Am C Am CRiver take me, river take me
Am C C F C GRiver take me far from trouble
F C G AmIf I had a boat you know what Id do?
Id float me and my family down to Baton Rouge I wouldnt work in no factory Id live off the land And live within means of my own two hands Dance Saturday nights to a Zydeco band
Am C Am CRiver take me, river take me
Am C C F C GRiver take me far from trouble
Am C Am CRiver take me, river take me
Am C C F C GRiver take me far from trouble
F C G AmOh the river flows and a young man dreams
And the river can drown you Or it can wash you clean It can take you away to some other place It can power your cities, carry your waste And give all that you drink a peculiar taste Oh, dont look to me, Ive done my time You see Ive had too many dreams for this one heart of mine And Ive stood on the bridge with the river below Feeling all of the sadness that a proud man could hold Oh the river is full but theres no way to go
