The River The Woods

Capo on 1st fret
	  		 
 


Am 
Wherever we go, we'll never be lost 
Some follow the compass rose, some follow the cross 
      C 
Me, I follow roads compulsively, till sirens call me off 
       Em 
Then I wander, eyes closed, following songs 
    Am 
This rivers a hymnal, the leaves are applause 
The trees sing in whispers, with the wind pulling their arms 
     C 
Hold still, and listen, your hand on my heart 
       Em 
If you need them, these beacons will lead you back to the start 
Yup 
Am 
No ax has seen these woods since before your father stood 
The path is beaten good from the feet of all who wandered through it 
C 
Old growth, holds hope, let the brambles scrape your skin 
Em 
   Scars are storybooks, blood will wash away your sins 
Am 
Now let that sun slip, then let that moon rise 
Follow in no footsteps, listen for the true guides 
C 
Woods will play tricks upon pretty blue eyes 
               Em 
Is that glimmer the river, or your village finally brought 
        Am 
back to life? 


Follow me tonight, I'll show you 
          C 
what's it like 
       Em 
To be alive 

  Am 
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets, 
              C  
We know the unknown, know the unknown 
           Em 
Know the unknown 
     Am 
Keep close, hold my hand now, just be strong 
We can follow this river right 
             C 
back to your home 
Back to your home 
             Em 
Back to your home 

       Am 
At the palace in Versilles, 400 years before this day 
They're packing up supplies, preparing for a long trip 
C 
They may not survive, but many of them know this 
Em 
They would rather die, than to leave the question open 

   Am 
So this is why we try? We bet it all on hopeless? 
And swim against the tide till until our every bone is broken 
  C 
A sinking ship is still a ship, no captain spoke the obit 
         Em 
Till the crew is flew, crow's nest slips silent beneath the ocean 
       Am 
We set sail without an anchor, we count upon that, never stop 
An anchor's just a coffin nail, waiting for that hammer drop 
   C 
It holds you by the ankles till it pulls you to the Acheron 
      Em 
Trade stable to be able to slip out from under devil's thumb 
Am 
   Keep your anchors, my home is where my hat is hung 
Postcard printed paper, and love notes from the lattice rungs 
C 
Blessed are the vagrant, the lonely are the static ones 
     Em 
It's every drifter's confirmation this world is just ravishing 

  Am 
I know it seems like we're all lost, we can follow this 
           C 
river back home 
River back home 
           Em 
River back home 

  Am 
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets, 
              C 
we know the unknown 
Know the unknown 
           Em 
Know the unknown 
     Am 
Keep close, hold my hand now, just be strong 
We can follow this river right 
             C 
back to your home 
Back to your home 
             Em 
Back to your home 
  Am 
I know it seems like we're all lost, we see the secrets, 
              C 
we know the unknown 
Know the unknown 
           Em 
Know the unknown 

Am
