The River And The Highway

(Gerry HouseDone Schlitz)

	  		The River and The Highway  by Pam Tillis 
Intro chords  D A G  D A G 
 
D                A               G 
She follows the path of least resistance 
      D              A                G 
She doesn't care to see the mountain top 
      D                         A          G 
She twistS and turns with no regard to distance 
D           A         G 
She never comes to a stop 
         D  A            G 
And she rolls, she's a river 
          D  A            G 
Where she goes time will tell 
       D  A                    G 
Heaven knows he can't go with her 
        D  A            G      A       Bm     A   G 
And she rolls all by herself  all by herself 
       D            A        G 
He's headed for a single destination 
             D           A              G 
He doesn't care what's standing in his path 
        D                  A          G 
He's a line between two points of separation 
    D                  A              G  
He ends just where it says to on the map 
       D  A            G             D A             G 
And he rolls he's high-way  Where he goes time will tell 
        D  A                    G 
Heaven knows she can't go with him   
       D  A           G       A       Bm     A   G 
And he rolls all by himself  all by himself 
 
      G                     D 
And every now and then, he offers her a shoulder 
      G                            D 
And every now and then, she over-flows. 
     G                     D              Bm 
And every now and than, a bridge crosses over 
        F                        A 
It's a moment that every lover knows 
        D   A 
And she rolls (and he rolls) 
          G 
she's a river (he's a highway) 
          D  A 
Where she goes (where he goes) 
            G 
time will tell (time will tell) 
       D  A                     G 
heaven knows she can't go with him (he can't go with her) 
         D  A           G 
and she rolls all by herself 
       D  A           G 
And he rolls all by himself 
A          D 
Fare thee well
