The River of No Return

	  		D       Dsus4 D7              G        Em7   D  
There is a   river called the river of no return;  
D    F#m7       Bm      Bm7     G        Em7  G/B  A7  
Sometimes it's peaceful,   and sometimes wild and free!  
D      Dsus4 D7              G       Em7  D  
Love is  a  trav'ler on the river of no return,  
D    F#m7   Bm   Bm7       A7        Em7  A7  D  
Swept on forever     to be lost in a stormy sea.  
A7     D   F#m       Em7      A7     D              
Wail-a-ree     I can hear the river call (no return, no return)  
 A7       G       Em7     D  
Where the roarin' waters fall,   
A7      D  F#m      Bm7           Bm7/E         E7     A7  
Wail-a-ree    I can hear my lover call, "Come to me."  
A7 G   A7  D     Dsus4  D7           G        Em7        D  
I lost my love on the  river, and forever my heart will yearn;  
D     F#m7    Bm   Bm7         Em7     G/B A7   D  
Gone, gone forever    down the river of no return.  
A7      D   DM7       Bm   Bm7  Bm7/E   
Wail-a-ree     wail-a-ree  
       G   G/F# Em7  A7 D    D  D6 D    D  D6 D    D  D6 D  
You'll never return to me! (no return, no return, no return)
