YOU KNOW A DREAM IS LIKE A RIVER
        G/D             D
EVER CHANGING AS IT FLOWS 
           G               D/F#
AND THE DREAMERS JUST A VESSEL 
            Em7           A
THAT MUST FOLLOW WERE IT GOES 
                  D    G/D        D
TRYING TO LEARN FROM WHATS BEHIND YOU 
            Bm                G
AND NEVER KNOWING WHATS IN STORE
                 D   G/D      D

LIKE A BIRD UPON THE WIND

SO I WILL SAIL MY VESSEL 
          A            D  G/D  D 
TILL THE RIVER RUNS DRY

START SECOND VERSE
TO MANY TIMES WE STAND ASIDE
AND LET THE WATERS SLIP AWAY 
TILL WHAT WE PUT OFF TILL TOMMORROW  - SAME CHORD PROGRESSION
HAS NOW BECOME TODAY 
SO DONT YOU SIT UPON THE SHORELINE 
AND SAY YOUR SATISFIED 
CHOOSE TO CHANCE THE RAPIDS 
AND DARE TO DANCE THE TIDES 

D G/D D  

A/C#        Bm                   G
AND THERES BOUND TO BE ROUGH WATERS 
       D        D/F#       G
AND I KNOW ILL TAKE SOME FALLS 
                Em7             D/F#
BUT WITH THE GOOD LORD AS MY CAPTAIN 
        G                  Asus
I CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THEM ALL

KEY CHANGE HERE D TO E 
          E   A/E     E
YES I WILL SAIL MY VESSEL 
A/E                   E
TILL THE RIVER RUNS DRY

Besides there not being a distinction that
you should sometimes use 320002 as G and
sometimes 32002x as G, the tab is
perfectly consistent with a Garth Brooks
tab book my Mom has. Good job man.

is a distinction. Great job!

I read your tab and played it recently at a funeral, it sounded great. Nice job.

The G/B chord is spelled out like a E i was just wondering why its like that and the G/B should be a regular G
