The River Knows Your Name  John Hiatt

The River Knows Your Name (from the album: Walk On) By John Hiatt
[Bb]Oh the r[F]iver [Bb]knows yo[F]ur name
And you[Dm]r tears f[C]alling like the [Bb]rain
All [Dm]around you [C]suffering and [F]pain[Bb]
Oh the[F] river [C]knows your [F]name
[Bb]And the [F]river h[Bb]ears you [F]cry
[F]As the [Dm]lightning [C]cracks the open [Bb]sky
As your[Dm] Momma [C]sings a lull[F]aby[Bb]
Oh the[F] river [C]she knows [F]why
(Same chord pattern repeats all five verses)
Let the river wash you down
Beneath the surface with a rushing sound
Like a freight train passing through a town
Let the river wash you down
Let the river take away
All the words what you and I could never say
In the silence Darling let us pray
Let the river take it all away
Oh the river knows your name
From the Brazos to the Wabash To the Seine
No two journeys are ever quite the same
But the river knows your name, Oh the river knows your name
