River Of Tears  Eric Clapton

[Am]    [Dm]    [G]   [F]                          
[C]It's three miles to the river[F] that would carry me away,
[Dm]and two miles to the dusty street[G] that I saw you on today,
[C]It's four miles to my lonely room[F] where I'm gonna hide my face,
[Dm]and about half a mile to the downtown bar[G] that I ran from in disgrace
[Am]Lord how long have I got to keep on running?
[Dm]Seven hours, seven days or seven years?
[G]All I know is since you've been gone, [F]feel like I'm drowning
in a river
Drowning in a river of [C]tears
[F]Drowning in a river
[Dm]Feel like I'm drowning, [G]drowning in a river of [C]tears

[C]In three more days, I leave this town,[F] in disappear without a trace,
[Dm]a year from now maybe settle down,[G] where no one knows my face,
[C]I wish that I could hold you one m[F]ore time to ease the pain,
[Dm]But my times run out and I got to [G]go, got to run away again
[Am]Still I catch myself thinking
[Dm]one day I'll find my way back here
[G]And you'll save me from drowning,     [F]
Drowning in a river of [C]tears
[F]Drowning in a river
[Dm]Feel like I'm drowning, [G]drowning in a river of [C]tears
