Oh Mississippi  Lissie

Tuning: EADGBE
An awesome song from an incredible talent
Depending on the version, the key changes... but on the official studio recording it's
tuning with capo at position 1. The chord shapes here (play all the chords open!) are
to the open tuning on the guitar. Don't forget the lovely little passing note - the D/Db
the refrain, it really adds further to the melancholy of this beautiful song
Oh mighty [G]river
The Missis[D]sippi’s
Turbulent [A]waters
Lull me to [D]sleep
Please take my [G]hand
I will go [D]gently
Your arms a[A]round me
You’ll me my [D]man[D/Db]
The leaves are [Bm]changing
[G] I cross this [D]road
To make my [E]last walk[E7]
In that warm sun[A]shine
Oh mighty [G]river
The Missis[D]sippi
Oh all the [A]trouble
Your banks have [D]seen
( Tab from: )
Carry these [G]stories
From north to [D]south
Around these [A]parts
You’re westward [D]bound
= inst = G D A D/Db
Oh the factory’s [Bm]closing
Kids have grown so [G]fast
Lift up their [E]woe pleas[E7]e
As you flow [A]past
Oh endless [G]river
You’ve seen it [D]all
Now do your [A]waters
Have room for one [D]more[/E] [/Gb]
Oh endless [G]river
As you trans[D]cend
Please take me [A]with you
Far from this [D]land
Please take me [A]with you
Far from this [D]land

Now all we have to do is learn to sing like Lissie(!)... I hope I've done it justice!
