INTRO: C

VERSE:
             C
I'm going to find me a dying river
And strike a deal with her I'll say.
      F 
"I'll fold you in two and I'll carry you away
     C
To a place where your headwaters will flow
                      G
Clean through to your mouth".

     C
In return I'll request a small sanctuary
       F 
By her banks where we will live with our small family
         C                                            G
She will water our garden and clean the dirt from our skin.
               F               Fmaj7
While the word clamours at our door
        G7                     C 
We will dance and not let them in.


VERSE 2: SAME CHORDS

And if one day we wake up to a bed dry as a bone
Find our river stolen, find our sanctuary gone
We will stand and take stock and be grateful
for what we've not lost.

We will pack up our bags, pack our small family
Head across the valley to where the aspen trees 
Shiver as they ascend- the green hills rising to blue.
At the edge of the shopping we will turn
And bid fond ädieu".


F                     C
All that I know to be true
                     G
Is the touch of your hand on my skin.
F                        C
One look from you can so easily soothe
         G 
All this turmoil within.
      Dm                            Am
As we dance cheek to cheek with our feet so completely
C                        G  
locked in a time all our own.
Dm                  Am
I stop to speak but you gently keep me 
C                     G 
Moving in time to the song.
         F             Am          Dm
And in a voice that is sloppy with gin
                        C
You say, "let the world spin".

VERSE:
             C
I'm going to find me a dying river
And strike a deal with her I'll say.
      F 
"I'll fold you in two and I'll carry you away
     C
To a place where your headwaters will flow
                      G
Clean through to your mouth".

     C
In return I'll request a small sanctuary
       F 
By her banks where we will live with our small family
         C                                            G
She will water our garden and clean the dirt from our skin.
             F               Fmaj7
As the world clamours at our door
        G7                     C 
We will dance and not let them in.
