RIVER- Joni Mitchell/ The Indigo Girls

G  Em  Dsus4 D Dsus2  (pick out melody notes of Jingle Bells)

      G/C         G                G/C           G
It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees
         G/C         G            G/C                     G
They're putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
Em                                     D     Dsus4 D
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
    G/C       G            G/C           G
But it don't snow here, it stays pretty green
              G/C          G             G/C                       G
I'm going to make alot of money then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
     Em                                 D     Dsus4 D
Oh I wish I had a river I could skake away on

      C                     D
Oh I wish I had a river so long
         G            G/F# Em
I would teach my feet to fly
      G                D                C
Oh I wish I had a river I could skake away on
                G  Em  Dsus4 D Dsus2
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me, he put me at ease
Lord he loved me so naughty made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I'm so hard to handle, I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby that I ever had
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
