       RIVER OF TEARS by Eric Clapton,Simon Climie   

      C    |F    |Dm    |G7   
      C    |F    |Dm    |G7   
      C    |F    |Dm    |G7   
      Am  |D7   |G       |F   
      C   
      It's three miles to the river   
      F   
      That would carry me away,   
      Dm   
      And two miles to the dusty street   
      G7   
      That I saw you on today.   

      C   
      It's four miles to my lonely room   
      F   
      Where I will hide my face,   
      Dm   
      And about half a mile to the downtown bar   
      G7   
      That I ran from in disgrace.   

      Am   
      Lord, how long have I got to keep on running,   
      D7   
      Seven hours, seven days or seven years?   
      G   
      All I know is, since you've been gone   
      F   
      I feel like I'm drowning in a river,   
      F   
      Drowning in a river of tears.   

      C   
      F   
      Drowning in a river.   
      Dm   
      Feel like I'm drowning,   
      G7   
      Drowning in a river.   

      C    |F    |Dm    |G7   

      C   
      In three more days, I'll leave this town   
      F   
      And disappear without a trace.   
      Dm   
      A year from now, maybe settle down   
      G7   
      Where no one knows my face.   
      C   
      I wish that I could hold you   
      F   
      One more time to ease the pain,   
      Dm   
      But my time's run out and I got to go,   
      G7   
      Got to run away again.   

      Am   
      Still I catch myself thinking,   
      D7   
      One day I'll find my way back here.   
      G   
      You'll save me from drowning,   
      F   
      Drowning in a river,   
      F   
      Drowning in a river of tears.   
      C   
      F   
      Drowning in a river.   
      Dm   
      Feels like I'm drowning,   
      G7   
      Drowning in the river.   
      C   
      Lord, how long must this go on?   

      F Dm  G7   
      Am D7 G   
      F   
      Drowning in a river,   
      F            C  
      Drowning in a river of tears.
