The Water

Johnny Flynn

C G C F C G Am F C G F
All that I have is a river,
Am E
The river is always my home.
C F Am F
Lord, take me away - For I just cannot stay
C Dm F
Or I'll sink in my skin and my bones.
C G C F
The water sustains me without even trying
C G Am F C
The water can't drown me, I'm done - With my dy-y-ing.
 
Please help me build a small boat, - One that'll ride on the flow. 
Where the river runs deep - And the larger fish creep 
I'm glad of what keeps me afloat 
The water sustains me without even trying 
The water can’t drown me, I’m done - With my dying. 
 
Now deeper the water I sail, - And faster the current I'm in. 
That each night brings the stars - And the song in my heart 
Is a tune for the Journeyman's tale. 
The water sustains me without even trying 
The water can’t drown me, I’m done - With my dying. 
Bridge
Em F
Now the land that I knew is a dream
Em F
And the light in the distance grows faint.
C F C F
So wide is my river - The horizon a sliver -
C G Am F
The artist has run out of paint.
 
Where the blue of the sea meets the sky - 
And the big yellow sun leads me home. 
I'm everywhere now - The way is a vow 
To the wind of each breath by and by. 
The water sustains me without even trying 
The water can’t drown me, I’m done - With my dying.
