The River

Track Info

[Verse]
D You know a dream is like a river
G D Ever changin' as it flows
G D And a dreamer's just a vessel
Em A That must follow where it goes
D Trying to learn from

What's behind you
Bm G And never knowing what's in store
D Makes each day a constant battle
D A D Just to stay between the shores [Chorus] D And I will sail my vessel
G D 'Til the river runs dry
G D Like a bird upon the wind
Em A These waters are my sky
D I'll never reach my destination
G If I never try
D So, I will sail my vessel
Em D 'Til the river runs dry [Verse]
D Too many times we stand aside
G D And let the waters slip away
G D Till what we put off till tomorrow
Em A Has now become today
D So don't you sit upon the shoreline
Bm G And say you're satisfied
D Choose to chance the rapids
D A D And dare to dance the tide [Chorus] D And I will sail my vessel
G D 'Til the river runs dry
G D Like a bird upon the wind
Em A These waters are my sky
D I'll never reach my destination
G If I never try
D So, I will sail my vessel
Em D 'Til the river runs dry [Bridge]
D G And there's bound to be rough waters
A And I know I'll take some falls
Em But with the good
A
Lord as my captain
D I can make it through them all [Chorus] D And I will sail my vessel
G D 'Til the river runs dry
G D Like a bird upon the wind
Em A These waters are my sky
D I'll never reach my destination
G If I never try
D So, I will sail my vessel
Em D 'Til the river runs dry
[Outro] Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry
