Washing Of The Water

Gabriel Peter

   River, river, carry me on
   Living river, carry me on
   F/C           C
   River, river, carry me on
   B/C                      C
   To the place where I come from

   C  F/D      C/E            F                          C
1. So deep, so wide, will you take me on your back for a ride
   C  G/B      Am              F               C
   If I should fall, would you swallow me deep inside
   C      F/D     G/B    C        F                     C
   River, show me how to float, I feel like I'm sinking down
   Am/C    C    Em/B G/B   F    C
   Thought that I could get along

   C Am/F   D/Gb      Fmaj7/G    Dm/G      C
R: But here in this water, my feet won't touch the ground
   C Am/F D/Gb         Fmaj7/G Dm/G  C
   I need something to turn  myself around

2. Going away, away toward the sea
   River deep, can you lift up and carry me
   Oh roll on through the heartland
   'Til the sun has left the sky
   River, river, carry me high

R: But here in this water...
   'Til the washing of the water, make it all alright
   Let your waters reach me, like she reached me tonight

   Am          C/G                Fmaj7
*: Letting go, it's so hard, the way it's hurting now
   D/Gb     E/Ab   Am
   To get this love untied
   C/G                            Fmaj7
   So tough to stay with this thing, cos if I follow through
   D/Gb      E/Ab Am
   I face what I  denied

   I'll get those hooks out of me
   Fmaj7                     D/Gb      E/Ab    Am
   And I'll take out the hooks that I sunk deep in your side
   C/G             Fmaj7        C
   Kill that fear of emptiness, that loneliness I hide

R: But here in this water...

   River, oh river, river running deep
   Bring me something that will let me get to sleep
   In the washing of the water will you take it all away
   Bring me something to take this pain away
