THE RIVER ‚?? Meredith Andrews
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again a piano song, but it can be picked quite nicely on guitar as well.
The same pattern is used here and there in the song, so when you get it
going you'll pretty much know the whole song. Have fun.

Everyone...
VERSE1 (continue picking as above)
Every[Am]one is br[G]oken and in [C]need of a [Fmaj7]Saviour
So He [Am]came and was b[G]roken for the [C]mocker, for the [Fmaj7]shamed

We can‚??[Am]t see that wer[G]e filthy, we‚?[C]?re fallen and[Fmaj7] so dry...

Welcome [Am]to the ri[C]ver
Come drink[G], come wade, come [Dm]find your very life
