BACK TO THE RIVER
Matt King
From the CD "Five O'Clock Hero"
Atlantic Records


(C) Coon dog howls, (G) baby cries
(F) Nightlight shinin' was a fireflie
My (C) very first kiss, my (G) mother's last wish
Sit(F)tin' here thinkin' 'bout days gone by
(C) Somewhere west of the (G) Carolina line
I (F) lost my way, nearly lost my mind
(C) Drinkin' from a fountain of (G) tears I cried
Cause, my (F) well's full of dust, and my soul's bone dry

I'm goin' (C) back to the river, where the (G) water runs deep
(F) Fall on my knees and take a big drink
(C) Wash this body, where (G) I was baptised
And (F) quinch my thirst, where the moon still shines
(Dm) Back to the (C) river

Well, I (C) hit the ground runnin' when I (G) hit hard times
(F) Runnin' away - chasin' highway signs
(C) Tried to change a heart made of (G) naughty pine
But, you (F) can't draw whiskey from a Honeysuckle vine

I'm goin' (C) back to the river, where the (G) water runs deep
(F) Fall on my knees and take a big drink
(C) Wash this body, where (G) I was baptised
And (F) quinch my thirst, where the moon still shines
(Dm) Back to the (C) river

Solo

I'm goin' (C) back to the river, where the (G) water runs deep
(F) Fall on my knees and take a big drink
(C) Wash this body, where (G) I was baptised
And (F) quinch my thirst, where the moon still shines
(Dm) Back to the (C) river
