Intro - C - Em - F - G - C - Em - F - G



(verse 1)

[C]Friends I could [Em]count on [F]  I could count on one [C]hand,
with a leftover [F]finger or [G]two[F], [-]  [G]
[C]I took 'em for [Em]granted,[F] let 'em all slip aw[C]ay,
[F]Now where they[G] are I wish I[C] knew[F],

(chorus)

[G]They roll [C]by,[Em]  just like[F] water[C]
[F]and I[G] guess we never[C] learn [F]  [-]  [G]
Go through [C]life[Em], parched and [F]empty
standin' [C]knee deep in a [F]river[G]
and dyin' of [C]thirst [Em]   [-]  [F]  [-]  [G]

(verse 2)
[C]Sometimes I re[Em]member[F], sweethearts I've [C]known,
Some I've for[F]gotten I sup[G]pose[F], [-]  [G]
[C]One or two still [Em]linger[F], oh and I wonder[C] now,
[F]why I[G] ever let them[C] go[F],
(chorus)

[G]They roll [C]by,[Em]  just like[F] water[C],
[F]and I[G] guess we never[C] learn,[F]  [-]  [G]
Go through [C]life[Em], parched and [F]empty,
standin' [C]knee deep in a [F]river[G],
and dyin' of [C]thirst,[Em]   [-]  [F]  [-]  [G]  [-]  [C]  [-]  [Em]   [-]  [F]

(verse 3)

[C#]So the sidewalk is[Fm] crowded[F#], the city goe[C#]s by,
and I rush [F#]through another [G#]day[-], [F#]   [-]  [G#]
[C#]and a world full of [Fm]strangers[F#], turn their eyes t[C#]o me,
[F#]but I just [G#]look the other [C#]way, [F#]

(chorus)
[G#]They roll [C#]by [Fm]   just like [F#]water,[C#]
[F#]and I [G#]guess we never [C#]learn[F#],  [-]  [G#]
Go through [C#]life[Fm],  parched and[F#] empty,
standin' [C#]knee deep in a [F#]river,
[G#]and dyin' of [C#]thirst,[F#]
[G#]They roll [C#]by [Fm]   just like [F#]water,[C#]
[F#]and I [G#]guess we never [C#]learn[F#],  [-]  [G#]
Go through [C#]life[Fm],  parched and[F#] empty,
standin' [C#]knee deep in a [F#]river,
[G#]and dyin' of [C#]thirst,[Fm]      [F#]     [G#]     [C#]
