The Bend In The River
by Marty Robbins

Am                         C

Past the first bend in the river
   Am                   Dm
Is another bend I can't see
And the bend that keeps calling is
The bend that keeps hiding from me
Am                         C
Past the first hill on the desert
   Am                   Dm
Is another hill I can't see
And the hill that keeps hiding
is the hill that keeps calling to me
       Am                Em
In the cottonwood by the river
  F                       C
A mourning dove calls his mate
       Am           Em
He has true love to give her
    F                G7
But love for me must wait
C         Am             C
Till I've traveled every river
         Am                           G7
And each desert hill I have climbed
If I find love to my liking
                       G7       C
I'll leave the river's bend far behind
