[Verse 1]
B5 F# E5And they came to the river
B5 F# E5And they came from the road
B5 F# E5And he wanted the sun
B5 F# E5Just to call his own
[Verse 2]
B5 F# E5And they walked on the dirt
B5 F# E5And they walked from the road
B5 F# E5'Til they came to the river
B5 F# E5'Til they came up close
[Chorus]
B5 G5 F#5Throw your pain in the river
B5 G5 F#5Throw your pain in the river
B5 G5 F#5Leave your pain in the river
B5 G5 F#5 N.CTo be washed away slow
[Verse 3]
B5 F# E5And we walked without words
B5 F# E5And we walked with our lives
B5 F# E5Two silent birds circled by
[Chorus]
B5 G5 F#5Like a pain in the river
B5 G5 F#5And the pain in the river
B5 G5 F#5And the white sun scattered
B5 G5 F#5Washed away this slow

B5 F# E5And we followed the river
B5 F# E5And we followed the road
B5 F# E5And we walked through this land
B5 F# E5And we called it a home
[Verse 5]
B5 D5 G5But he wanted the sun
B5 D5 G5And I wanted the whole
B5 D5 G5And the white light scatters
B5 D5 G5And the sun sets low
[Chorus]

B5 G5 F#5To be washed away slow
