The River  Garth Brooks

    [G]      [A]  [G]      [A]  [G]      [A]  [G]       [A]  [D]                                        

D *D G/D D *D
You know a dream is like a river ever changin' as it flows.
And the [G]dreamer's just a vesse[D/F#]l  that must [Em7]follow where it [A]goes.
D G/D D *D Bm G
Trying to learn from what's behind you, and never knowing what's in store
D G/D D *D A D #D#
Makes each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores

D G/D D *D G/D D *D
And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.
Like a [G]bird upon the wi[D/F#]nd,  these [Em7]water's are my s[A]ky.
Bm A/C# D G/D D *D G
I'll never reach my destination if I never try.
D G/D D *D A D #D#
So, I will sail my vessel 'till the river runs dry.

2: Too many times we stand aside and let the water slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow has now become today.
So, don't you sit upon the shorline and say you're satisfied.
Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tide.
(To Chorus:)

[A/C#]And there's [Bm]bound to be rough wa[G]ters and I [D]know I'll [D/F#]take some [G]falls.
But with the [Em7]Good Lord as my [D/F#]captain, I can [G]make it through them all.[Asus]

CHORUS (with key change)
Yes, I will [E]sail [A/E]my ve[E]ssel  'til the [A/E]river runs dr[E]y.
Like a [A]bird upon the win[E/G#]d,  these [F#m7]water's are my [B]sky.
I'll[C#m] neve[B/D#]r    [E]reach my [A/E]desti[E]nation [A]if I never try.
So, I will [E]sail [A/E]my   [E]vessel 'till the [B]river runs d[E]ry.[F#m7]      [E/G#]
[A]Yes, I will [E]sail [A/E]my   [E]vessel 'till the [B]river runs d[A]ry.[B/A]
[A]  'til the river [B/A]runs dry.

By *D I mean to hammer on from Dsus2 (xx0230) to D (xx0232) on the 1st string.
[#D#]    [is]   [D-D-Dsus4-D-Dsus2-D]
