Eb
Leaves are fallin' down on the beautiful ground
          Cm
I heard a story from the man in red
              Eb
He said "The leaves are fallin' down
 
Such a beautiful sound
       Cm
Son, I think you'd better go ahead
        Eb
But you always hold your head up high
              Cm
'Cause it's a long, long, long way down
              Eb
This town was meant for passing through
 
Boy it ain't nothing new
           Cm
Now go and show 'em that the world stayed round
            Ab                  Gm    Fm   Eb  Eb  Ab  Gm Bb
But it's a long, long, long way down
           Eb
You better run for the hills
 
Before they burn
              Cm
Listen to the sound of the world
 
Don't watch it turn
               Fm            Gm
I just want to show you what I know
                       Ab
And catch you when the current
        Bb
Lets you go
                 Eb
Or should I just get along with myself
            Cm
I never did get along with everybody else
                 Eb
I've been tryin' hard to do what's right
             Cm                            Ab
But you know I could stay here, all night
                                   Fm
And watch the clouds fall from the sky
     Bb              Eb       Cm
This river is wild
                      Eb   Cm    Bb/F
This river is wild  
 
 
 
 
Eb
Run for the hills before they burn
              Cm
Listen to the sound of the world
 
Don't watch it turn
 
I shake a little
Eb
Sometimes I'm nervous when I talk
 
I shake a little
Cm
Sometimes I hate the line I walk
               Fm            Gm
I just want to show you what I know
                       Ab
And catch you when the current
        Bb
Lets you go
                 Eb
Or should I just get along with myself
            Cm
I never did get along with everybody else
                 Eb
I've been tryin' hard to do what's right
             Cm                            Ab
But you know I could stay here, all night
                                   Fm      Bb
And watch the clouds fall from the sky
                       Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab
Because this river is wild
             Ab Bb Gm Ab Cm
Godspeed ya, boy
              Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab
This river is wild
 
 
Eb
Now Adam's taking bombs and he's stuck on his mom
             Cm
Because that bitch keeps tryin' to make him pray
              Eb
He's with the hippie in the park combing over the dark
               Cm
Just tryin' to get some of that little-girl play
            Ab                Gm
You better run for the hills before they burn
              Fm
Listen to the sound of the world
       Eb
Don't watch it turn
               Fm            Gm
I just want to show you what I know
                       Ab
And catch you when the current
        Bb
Lets you go
 
            Eb
Or should I get along with myself
            Ab                  Gm
I never did get along with everybody else
                 Bb                 Cm
I've been tryin' hard to do what's right
             Eb               Ab
But you know I could stay here
 
All night
Ab                                 Fm   Bb
And watch the clouds fall from the sky
Ab                         Bb
This pain is hell in me tonight
 
                       Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab
Because this river is wild
             Ab Bb Gm Ab Cm
Godspeed ya, boy
              Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab
This river is wild
                       Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab
Because this river is wild
             Ab Bb Gm Ab Cm
Godspeed ya, boy
              Cm Bb/D Bb Cm Ab Ab Bb Gm Ab Eb
This river is wild
 
 
 
And cars are everywhere
Raisin' dust at the fairground
I don't think I ever seen so many headlights
But there's something pullin' me
The circus and the crew
Well they're just passin' through
Makin' sure the merry still goes 'round
But it's a long, long, long way down
