Intro

C Fmaj7 G D
D C G D

A              G
Rain came down twelve-oh-one
Em
New Year's Eve in old London
A            G                      D
I could only stand there weeping on the mighty Thames
A                     G
Alone and in love and fully alive
Em
The first time in a lifetime
A                         G                            D
And all those people just floating on the water like a midnight gem

C                    Fmaj7
Will you go with me, bittersweetly,
G               D
Skipping like a stone?
D                 C
The great rivers, all the great rivers,
G                         D
I've already walked along alone

A                G
It's an upstream journey to you
Em
Despite the sleight of hand that the cold winds blew
A                   G             D
The false direction laid atop the current underneath
A                        G
But I can forgive nearly anything
Em
That ends on autumn's tracks to spring
A               G                  D
Followed you in dreams out to that Mississippi beach

C                    Fmaj7
Will you go with me, bittersweetly,
G               D
Skipping like a stone?
D                 C
The great rivers, all the great rivers,
G                         D
I've already walked along alone

A                        G
It's not that you should stay the night
Em
It's just that you belong.
A                           G
It's not that I'm trying to make things right
D
I'm just so tired of being wrong.

C                    Fmaj7
Will you go with me, bittersweetly,
G               D
Skipping like a stone?
D                 C
The great rivers, all the great rivers,
G                         D
I've already walked along alone


C Fmaj7 G D
D                 C
The great rivers, all the great rivers,
G                         D
I've already walked along alone
