                             DOWN TO THE RIVER – Bernard Fanning
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: EADGBe

This is the most of it. The other tab was good but wasn’t finished and was a little bit 
to play so I’ve simplified for all. You’ll have to listen to the song to get the timing 
but these are all the notes. The chorus is a little iffy but it still sounds very close to the recording.

Part 1: This is the nice soft bit where all is calm and it’s just Bernard and the guitar.

Lyrics: 1.Ride out the storm, take on the wave, don’t run, run, run
          The winds gonna blow and the ground’s gonna shake then it’s gone, gone, gone
        2.Try not to mourn, shake off the pain don’t run, run, run
          The world’s gonna spin and the earth’s gonna quake then it’s done, done, done

Lyrics: If I ask you tenderly will you follow me down to the river
        I’ll let you down I’ll break your wings
        If you follow me down to the river


Note: All of this is played twice through. After the chorus the end bit of the chorus is 
through about six times and then it goes into part 2.


Part 2: This is the bit where he gets nice and loud and everyone joins in. I think he
        uses distortion, phaser and tremolo as effects for this part so if you got those
        give ‘em a whirl and see if you can get it right. Remember: The forward slash
        between the chords at the top of the tab is a slide from chord to chord.

Lyrics: I’ve got it all, all ahead of me now
        A pattern’s gonna form and the wind’s gonna blow me down

Well that’s it. After part 2 it goes back to part 1 with the band playing this time the 
verse is used for the lyrics and it fades out with the end of the chorus. This is an 
song from a great album. If you haven’t got it it’s worth getting.
