The River
Rich Mullins

Song of Solomon 4:8-9

  Db      Db7    Db      Db7
[ / / / / / / ][ / / / / / / ]

Db
Another hour deeper in the night
         Gb
Another mile farther down the road
   Db
A man can drive as hard as he can drive
    Gb
And never get as far as his heart was meant to go
Bbm				         Gb2
   Sometimes when you look up in the sky

You think we might be closer than you know

Db	         Gb
[ / / / / / / ][ / / / / / / ]

Another tune forms in my head, more harmonies more empty words
And oh I could play these songs 'til I was dead
And never approach the sound that I once heard
I remember when I was just a kid
Gb						       Eb7/G
 Listening in the sky, believing that the wind would stir

	       Db/Ab        F7/A
And I know the river is deep
	             Gb6               Ebm7
I found out that the currents are tricky
		   F7no5/B    Ebm7  Db/F		
And I know that the river is wide
          Gb2	          Ab  Eb7/G
And oh the currents are strong
	  Db/Ab          F7
And I may lose every dream
		      Gb6	    Ebm7
I dreamt that I could carry with me
				Absus
But I have failed so many times
                                   Ab  Bbm7 Ab/C
But You've never let me fall down alone

Maybe she could come to Wichita, maybe we could borrow Beaker's bike
We'd let the road wind tie our hair in knots
Let the speed and the freedom untangle the lies
Maybe fear can vanish before love
Oh God don't let this love be denied

And I know the river is deep, I found out that the currents are tricky
I know the river is wide, and oh the currents are strong
And I could lose every dream I dreamt that I could carry with me
But I will reach the other side
Please don't let me have to wait too long

          Db			Gb	   Db			      Gb
Another hour deeper in the night, another mile farther down the road
  Db             Gb
[ / / / / / / ][ / / / / / / ]
	     Db        Gb
We could be closer than you know
    Db		  Gb
