                RIVER - Joni Mitchell (capo 5h for JM version, capo 2nd for Travis version)

- adapted by Anton Frank

Intro: G,  Em,  Csus2, D (Dadd5-Dsus4-D-D-Dsus2-D)   
(adjust melody of Jingle Bells, as I play it on the guitar, I use three top 
strings, it’s pretty easy to pick it out)

      C         G                  C           G
It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees
         C         G                    C                 G
They're putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
Em                                     D     Dsus4 D
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
    C        G             C           G
But it don't snow here, it stays pretty green
             C            G                      C                G
I'm going to make alot of money then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
     Em                                 D     Dsus4 D
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      C                     D
Oh I wish I had a river so long
         G              C  Am
I would teach my feet to fly
      G                D                C
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
                G  Em  D
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me, he put me at ease
Lord he loved me so naughty made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I'm so hard to handle, I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby that I ever had
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on 

(in the ending she plays with D, Csus2, Am)
