Am       G
Homebound Henry's got a tumor in his head 
       C            D
He wakes up sweating every morning after dreaming he was dead. 
         Am              G     
He used to think that life was boring, but now that's not the case. 
       C          D
He says to his wife sometimes in the evening, "Honey, I'm afraid I'm
gonna lose this race." 

Sweet River, roll 
C     GCD
all over me. 
C     GCD
Sweet River, roll 
C     GCD
all over me. 

Soaking wet Juliet- she lives in a well full of tears. 
Her husband left her for some bimbo after twenty-two years. 
And she's gotta start all over, but she's just so terrified. 
She thinks it woulda been so much easier if he woulda just died. 


And I'm looking out my car window sittin in the pouring rain. 
Although your house is fifteen miles away, I can still feel your pain. 
I've thought and prayed and worked it through a hundred times or more 
How your soul just cries to everyone to help you get up off the floor. 

Right now it's morning. You're prob'ly sleeping, and I bet you're totally unaware 
of the flood of kisses you hold back by the way that you despair. 
It ain't me I'm talking bout here, or anybody else you can touch. 
That's all the more I'll say right now. I don't wanna say too much. 

'cept Sweet Jesus, Roll 
All over me. 
Sweet Jesus, Roll 
All over me.

Awesome, but just to point it out...the lyrics at the end of verse 1 should be "he turns to his wife in the evening"

"he turns to his wife in the evening, and says 'honey i'm afraid i'm gonna lose this race'"

The last line of the last verse should say "That's all I'm gonna say right now, I don't wanna say too much."
