                Put a capo on relative to the pitch of your voice. I found it was fitting on 3rd.

G                               C                G
there's a house over the river but alas i cannot swim
G                               D
and a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin
G                               C                G
there's a house over the river but alas i cannot swim
G                               D                G
ill live my life regretting that i never jumped in

G                               C                G
there's a boy over the river with short black curly hair
G                               D
he wants to be my lover and i want to be his peer
G                               C                G
there's a boy over the river but alas i cannot swim
G                               D                G
i never will get to put my arms around him

G                               C                G
there's a life up by the river that was meant for me
G                               D
instead i live my life in constant misery
G                               C            G
there's a life across the river but i do not see
G                               D       G
why i should please those who'll never be pleased

Em                             C             Em
there is gold across the river but i dont want none

there is gold across the river but i dont want none

gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun

gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun
G                               C             G
there is gold across the river but i dont want none
G                                      C
i would rather be driving being held up by a golden gun
G                 G          C          G                    
saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
G                 G          C          G
saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun

saying work more, earn more, live more, have more fun
