Find the River  R.E.M.

 Intro Riff: --2----2----0----0----| x 2

D Dm Dsus2 Dsus4/G x 2
[D]Hey now little sp[Dm]eedy head, the [Dsus2]read on the spee[Dsus4/G]dmeter says
[D]you have to go the task[Dm] in the cit[Dsus2]y
Where [D]people drown and peop[Dm]le serve,
Don'[Dsus2]t be shy, your j[Dsus4/G]ust deserve is onl[D]y just l[Dm]ight years to g[Dsus2]o.
[G]Me, my thoughts are flowe[A]r strewn, o[D]cean storm, baybe[Em]rry moon.
[G]I have got to leave[A] to find my [D]way
[G]Watch the road and mem[A]orize this life [D]that pass befor[Em]e my eyes,
[G] nothing is go[A]ing my way[D]
D Dm Dsus2 Dsus4/G x 2
The[D] ocean is the riv[Dm]ers goal, a need [Dsus2]to leave the wate[Dus4/G]r knows.
We're [D]closer now than ligh[Dm]t years to go.[Dsus2]
[G]I have got to fi[A]nd the river, b[D]ergamot and ve[Em]tiver
[G] Run through my h[A]ead and fall away.[D]
[G]Leave the road and mem[A]orize this life[D] that pass before m[Em]y eyes,
[G] nothing is go[A]ing my way[D].
There's [D]no one left to take[Dm] the lead, b[Dsus2]ut I tell you and y[Dsus4/G]ou can see
We're clos[D]er now and lig[Dm]ht years to go[Dsus2]
P[D]ick up here and c[Dm]hase the ride. The [Dsus2]river empties to[Dsus4/G] the tide;
[D]Fall into the o[Dm]cean.[Dsus2]
The [G]river to the oc[A]ean goes, a for[D]tune for the und[Em]ertow.
[G]None of this is go[A]ing my way[D].
[G]There is nothing left[A] to throw of gin[D]ger, lemon, ind[Em]igo,
[G] Coriander ste[A]m and rose of hay.[D]
Str[G]ength and courage ove[A]rrides these priv[D]ileged and wear[Em]y eyes of
[G]River poet se[A]arch naivete[D].
[G]Pick up here and cha[A]se the ride, the r[D]iver empties to t[Em]he tide.
[G]All of this is co[A]ming your way.[D]
