The River
Recorded by Garth Brooks
Written by Victoria Shaw and Garth Brooks

C
You know a dream is like a river
F C
Ever changing as it flows
F C
And a dream is just a vessel
Am G7
That must follow where it goes

C G7
Trying to learn from what's behind you
Am F
And never knowing what's in store
C
Makes each day a constant battle
G7 C
Just to stay between the shores


And I will sail my vessel
F C
Till the river runs dry
F C
Like a bird upon the wind
Dm G7
These waters are my sky

C
I'll never reach my destination
F
If I never try
C
So I will sail my vessel
G7 C
Until the river runs dry


Too many times we stand aside
F C
And let the waters slip away
F C
Till what we put off till tomorrow
Dm G7
Has now become today

C
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
Am F
And say you're satisfied
C
Choose to chance the rapids
G7 C
And dare to dance the tide

repeat #3,4

Am F
Well there's bound to be rough waters
C F
And I know I'll take some falls
Dm C
But with the good Lord as my captain
F G7
I can make it through them all

repeat #3,4

F C
Yes I will sail my vessel
G7 C
Until the river runs dry
G7 C
Until the river runs dry
