Many Rivers To Cross  Jimmy Cliff

Ma[G]ny rivers to cr[Bm]oss [C]
But I c[Bm]an't seem to fi[C]nd my [D]way o[G]ver
Wa[G]ndering I am l[Bm]ost [C]
As I tra[Bm]vel alo[C]ng the whi[D]te cliffs of D[G]over
Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been licked, washed up for years
And I merely survived because of my pride

A[C]nd this loneliness won't lea[G]ve me alone
I[C]t's such a drag to be on[G] your own
M[C]y woman left and she di[G]dn't[G/F#m] say w[Em]hy
C D (n.c.)
Well I guess I have to try

Many rivers to cross
But just where to begin, I'm playing for time
There have been times I find myself
Thinking of committing some dreadful crime
