River  Joni Mitchell

Notes: For the bass notes, its best to play triads of "root-5th-octave" (for C chords,
C/G/C, for Am chords A/E/A, etc.) like in the recording.
Also, I don't know the chords for the bridge, so you'll just have to make something up.
Intro:
[C] [C/A] [C/F] [G]  
(Play "Jingles Bells" melody using the C chord)
It's com[Dm/C]ing on Christmas[C]
They're [Dm/C]cutting down trees[C]
They're [Dm/C]putting up reindeer[C]
And sing[Dm/C]ing songs of joy an[C]d peace
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
But it d[Dm/C]on't snow here[C]
It stays[Dm/C] pretty green[C]
I'm goin[Dm/C]g to make a lot of [C]money
Then I'm[Dm/C] going to quit this[C] crazy scene
I wish I[Am] had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I wish I[F] had a river so long[G]
I would [C]teach my feet to fly[F] [Em] [Dm]
Oh I wis[C]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on[Fm]
I made my baby cry[C]
He tried[Dm/C] hard to help me[C]
You know[Dm/C], he put me at ease[C]
And he l[Dm/C]oved me so naughty[C]
Made me [Dm/C]weak in the knees[C]
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I'm so h[Dm/C]ard to handle[C]
I'm self[Dm/C]ish and I'm sad[C]
Now I've[Dm/C] gone and lost the [C]best baby
That I e[Dm/C]ver had[C]
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I wish I[Fm] had a river so long[G]
I would [C]teach my feet to fly[F] [Em] [Dm]
Oh I wis[G]h I had a river[Fm]
I made my baby say goodb[C]ye
It's com[Dm/C]ing on christmas[C]
They're [Dm/C]cutting down trees[C]
They're [Dm/C]putting up reindeer[C]
And sing[Dm/C]ing songs of joy an[C]d peace
I wish I[Am] had a river
I could [G]skate away on
Outro:
Play "Jingle Bells" Melody using the G chord
