Across The River  Blitzen Trapper

Capo 2
Well I [G]dove into that [Em]river
To [C]see what [G]I coul[D]d find
And the [C]water it [G]rolled o[D]n top [G]of me
And the [C]stars refused to [D]shine
Well I s[G]wam until I c[Em]ould not swim
Then I [C]swam a li[G]ttle m[D]ore
And the [C]current [G]held me like a [D]lover's [G]arms
And then it [C]left me on the [D]shore
Then I [G]stood and looked to from[Em] where I came
The [C]place where [G]I was [D]born
But it [C]seemed to [G]me only [D]half is [G]real
Like the [C]dark and distant [D]storm
And I [G]breathed the air around[Em] me
I [C]felt my [G]heart beat [D]new
For I [C]left my [G]home and I [D]nearly d[G]rowned
For a [C]glimpse of something [D]few have ever [G]seen
Then I [G]walked up from the [Em]shoreline
To a [C]city [G]shining [D]bright
And I [C]walked the [G]streets of that [D]lovely [G]place
[C]Till the coming of the [D]night
But there [G]were no voices [Em]speaking
There was [C]not a [G]soul [D]around
So I [C]sat [G]alone on an [D]empty [G]throne
In the [C]middle of that [D]town
(Chorus)
And I said [C]oh my, [G]oh me
[C]Oh [G]me, oh [D]my
There's a [C]river that [G]runs bet[D]ween the [G]sun
And the [C]darkness of our [D]lives
You can [C]hit the road or [G]stay in bed
You can [C]sink or [G]swim or [D]fight
But when [C]all of [G]this is [D]said and [G]done
You gon' [C]walk so gently [D]still into tha[G]t night
Then I [G]sat so still and [Em]silent
With my [C]head [G]hanging [D]low
And an [C]empti[G]ness like a [D]barren [G]field
You know it [C]settled round my s[D]oul
Then a [G]man appeared [Em]before me
Though I [C]tried, I [G]can't [D]deny
That he [C]had my [G]father's [D]face and [G]hands
But his [C]eyes shone like the [D]sky
He said my [G]son, you've [Em]come too soon
You better [C]get on [G]outta [D]here
You know I'd [C]let you [G]stay but round [D]here a [G]day
Is much [C]like a thousand [D]years
And your [G]heart is like a [Em]diamond
It [C]splits the [G]light in [D]two
And you'll [C]only [G]shine for a [D]certain [G]time
Till you're [C]swallowed up in [D]blue
(Chorus)
And I said [C]oh my, [G]oh me
[C]Oh [G]me, oh [D]my
There's a [C]river that [G]runs bet[D]ween the [G]sun
And the [C]darkness of our [D]lives
You can [C]hit the road or [G]stay in bed
You can [C]sink or [G]swim or [D]fight
But when [C]all of [G]this is [D]said and [G]done
You gon' [C]walk so gently [D]still into tha[G]t night
So I [G]dove into that [Em]river
[C]Again a [G]second [D]time
And the [C]water [G]rolled on [D]top of[G] me
And the [C]stars refused to [D]shine
Then I [G]swam until I [Em]could not swim
And I [C]sank just [G]like a [D]stone
When I [C]woke [G]again I was [D]laying [G]in
My [C]bed inside my [D]home
Then I [G]walked out to the [Em]city streets
With the [C]voices [G]high and[D] bright
And I [C]breathed the [G]air with[D]out a [G]care
And I [C]walked so gently [D]still
Into that [G]light
