[ Verse 1 ]
 
    D              C/D
The weather man he looks confused
C                           G                   D       G  D/A
  Shakes his fist at the sky like you used to do

But you don't remember things like that do you
    C                        G/A                D       G  D/A
The balance was uneven but I'm breaking through
 
[ Chorus 1 ]

Slow rivers run cold

 Shallow waters never sank so low

You're a slow river and you run so cold

The winter here don't believe in God

The bitter wind just bites through me like a wild dog
        D                                     C/D
I still see your eyes tonight like headlights through the fog
    C                              G              D     G  D/A
But one foot in your door oh that's all I ever got

You're a slow river and you run so cold

  Swim my way in a flood of tears
F                          G
  No place to hide your conscience so
            C                 D         D
You're a sinking ship with no place to go
