Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

River  Indigo Girls

It's c[G/C]oming on Chr[G]istmas, they're c[G/C]utting down tr[G]ees
They're p[G/C]utting up re[G]indeer and si[G/C]nging songs of joy and p[G]eace
[Em]Oh I wish I had a river I could skate a[D]way on[Dsus4]      [D]
But [G/C]it don't s[G]now here, it [G/C]stays pretty g[G]reen
I'm going to m[G/C]ake alot of m[G]oney then I'm [G/C]going to quit this crazy s[G]cene
Oh I [Em]wish I had a river I could skake aw[D]ay on [Dsus4]      [D]
Oh I w[C]ish I had a river so l[D]ong
I would t[G]each my feet [G/F#]to fl[Em]y
Oh I w[G]ish I had a river[D] I could skake aw[C]ay on
I made my baby c[G]ry [Em]    [Dsus4]      [D]  [Dsus2]
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
