River (Guitar chord)

River
written by M Yonts & David Allan Coe
performed by David Allan Coe
from the album The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy

D A7 D
River, you heard my first cry as a baby
G A D
And, like my Mom, you sang me lullabies
G A
You knew my fishing pole
D G
When I was eight years old
D A7 D
And, river, you never told me lies
A G D
(chorus) River, I can see you from my window
G A D
Your muddy water makes me feel alone
G A
River, you keep flowing
D G
Like you know just where you're going
D A7 D
But, river, will you ever take me home

River, I'm not proud of what I've done
Somehow my fishing pole became a gun
Through these prison bars I see
That you're still running free
But, river, I've got no place to run
