Frank Turner – Rivers chords

Chords
Transpose:
My first chords, dont be too mean ;) Can't believe noones uploaded this yet! One of my 
favs from the new album, had to be done.

A/E means play the bass note E (3rd string).G-A or E- means quickly strum the chord preceding the "-" before going straight back to the following chord (So for the E-, its E then A). This just adds a little something to the song.
Also, I find it sounds nice to play the A with the G string open (Making it A7 perhaps? I'm no expert 002200). Hope this helps! Tabbed by: Benjamin S Email:Benjamin@jamindesigns.co.uk Tuning:Standard Capo: None E G G-A E
E A/E E-Our history runs down our rivers
A B? EDown our rivers to the sea
E A/E E-Reminds us of the things that matter
A B? EHome and heart and history
E A/E E-And all our sins will be forgiven
A B? EWashed away to set us free
E A/E E-By the rivers that run through our homesteads
A B? EBy myth and modal melody
F# AI traced these rivers from the cities to the seas
E BTo remind me of what I already know
F# AI traced the shorelines through a thousand esturies
E BTo remind me an island is my home
EAn island is my home
I traveled far across this country Northumberland to Southern Downs I wandered up the rolling Humber And down the Thames to London town Countless lives were lived and lingered In the cuts, swerves, and the fells I left a tapestry called England And life and those who lived it well I traced these rivers from the cities to the seas To remind me of what I already know I traced the shorelines through a thousand histories To remind me an island is my home An island is my home Round here the sky is a little closer A little closer to the ground It's hard for someone to get lost here Harder still to get found Though I've seen a thousand rivers From the Mississippi to the Rhine The only place that I'll lay my hat down Is by an English riverside I traced these rivers from the cities to the seas To remind me of what I already know I traced the shorelines through a thousand histories To remind me an island is my home An island is my home
E F#So place your trust into the sea
A BIt's kept us safe for centuries
E F#It shaped our shores and steadily
A BIts care has brought us, calm
E F#When I die, I hope to be
A Bburied out in English seas
E F#So all that then remains of me
A BWill lap against these shores
EUntil England is no more
