ZAYTOUN - DRY THE RIVER Standard tuning with no capo for the record version. Submit any questions/queries/improvements - This is my first chord sheet ======================================================== C Am I witnessed the youth washing off us, E F and pool round our feet like a lake. [hums] C Am If you lower yourself into darkness, E F No point tying the rope round your waist. [hums] Am I heard about your father, F C G the olive in the arbor, and the stone inside your heart just the same. C Am The statue wept milk in the garden, E F hoping something might grow there again. [hums] C I feel all these forces, Like riderless horses now. G free from the cart. C We bandage our feet again, skip over peace again, G hurry apart. C Am Now the bulrushes twist into baskets, E F Like our histories and futures entwined, oh-whoa. C Am The Obadiah low on the branches , E F are turning the water to wine, oh-whoa. Am It's hard enough to be here, F Such a distance from the sea, C G 30,000 years I've survived. C Am And all of those kings I've anointed, E F Still shook like a leaf at my sight. [hums] C I feel all these forces, Like riderless horses now. G free from the cart. C We bandage our feet again, skip over peace again, G hurry apart. F We've tasted the fruit I guess, snakes in the roof I guess, C whisper the parse. F See how the lightning tree, fought in a sign of peace, C burns in the dark. F It burns in the dark.
