[D]  [Dm]   [Em]   [A7]     [D]Ve[Dm]rse[A7]:
[D]hey now little s[Dm]peedyhead
the [Em]read on the speed[A]meter says
you [D]have to go to [Dm]task in the ci[Em]ty
where [D]people drown and [Dm]people serve
[Em]don't be shy your j[A]ust deserve
is [D]only just l[Dm]ight years to g[Em]o
CHORUS:
[G]me, my thoughts are [A]flower strewn
[D]ocean storm, bay[Em]berry moon
[G]I have got to [A]leave to find my [D]way
[G]watch the road and [A]memorize
this [D]life that pass be[Em]fore my eyes
[G]nothing is [A]going my [D]way.
Note: Last chord of chorus is first chord of verse
[D]  [Dm]   [Em]   [G]  [D]  [Dm]   [A]     VERSE (as above):
the ocean is the rivers goal
a need to leave the water knows
we're closer now than light years to go.
CHORUS (as above):
I have got to find the river
bergamot and vetiver
run through my head and fall away
leave the road and memorize
this life that pass before my eyes
nothing is going my way.
Repeat INTRO
VERSE:
there's no one left to take the lead
but I tell you and you can see
we're closer now than light years to go.
pick up here and chase the ride
the river empties to the tide
fall into the ocean.
CHORUS:
the river to the ocean goes
a fortune for the undertow
none of this is going my way.
there is nothing left to throw
of ginger, lemon, indigo,
coriander stem and rose of hay.
strength and courage overrides
the privileged and weary eyes
of river poet search naivete.
pick up here and chase the ride
the river empties to the tide
all of this is coming your way.
End on D

        [D]       [Dm]       [A7sus4]         H[D]ey now little spe[Dm]edy head the [A7sus4]read on the speedome[Dsus]ter says
you [D]have to go the[Dm] task in the[A7sus4] city
Wher[D]e people drown and[Dm] people serve
[A7sus4]Don't be shy, your ju[Dsus]st deserve is o[D]nly just [Dm]light years [A7sus4]to go
Me[G] my thoughts are flowe[A]rs strewn, an o[D]cean storm may bury [Em]them

We're[D] closer now, bu[Dm]t light years [A7sus4]to go
I h[G]ave got to f[A]ind the river, be[D]rgamot and be[Em]d of rose
Ru[G]n through my [A]head and far [D]away
Le[G]ave the road and[A] memorize this [D]life that passed[Em] before my eyes
an[G]d nothing is [A]going my [D]way 
There's no one left to take the lead
But I'll tell you and you can see
We're closer now and light years to go
(repeat chorus chords for these last 4 verses)
Pick up here and chase the ride
River empties to the tide, fall into the ocean
River to the ocean goes a fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to grow
but Ginger, mint and indigo
Coriander stem and rows of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
River poets search naivete
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way
