[Dadd9]Though the river flows g[Gadd9]ently to the sea,
C6(no3) Gadd9 Dadd9
He was on the shore, rooted like a tree,
[Dadd9] She was here, and there, [Gadd9]riding on the waves,
C6(no3) Gadd9 Dadd9
Through it all she heard his call, and gave it all she gave!
A Gadd9(type2)
And though their love was hanging on a limb,

 She taught him how to dance--------------------, and start a - gain,

And[Dadd9] when the melody, t[Gadd9]hrough the window called,
C6(no3) Gadd9 Dadd9
It echoed in the courtyard, and whispered in the halls,
He [Dadd9]played it through the night, she [Gadd9]knew he had to go,
C6(no3) Gadd9 Dadd9
There was something about freedom...he thought he didn't know!
