Chords for Rivers by Frank Turner, tidying up some mistakes I found in others...


Intro:
E   D/C# G/A  E    (*2)

Verse 1:
E DOur history runs down our rivers
D C# EDown our rivers to the sea
E DReminds us of the things that matter
D C# EHome and heart and history
E DAnd all our sins will be forgiven
D C# EWashed away to set us free
E DBy the rivers that run through our homesteads
D C# EBy myth and modal melody
Chorus:
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 estuaries
E BTo remind me an island is my home
EAn island is my home
Play intro: E D/C# G/A E (*1) Verse 2: I travelled 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 Cotswolds and the Fells And left a tapestry called England Of life and those who lived it well Chorus Play intro: E D/C# G/A E (*4) Verse 3: Around here the sky's 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 I'd lay my hat down Is by an English riverside Chorus
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 estuaries
E BTo remind me an island is my home
F#An island is my home
F# AHmm hmm hmm hmm
E BSo place your trust in to the sea
A BIt's kept us safe for centuries
E BIt shapes our shore and steadily
A BIt's care has brought us calm
E BAnd when I die I hope to be
A BBuried out in English seas
E BSo all that then remains of me
A BWill lap against these shores
E'Til England is no more
