                                                Garth Brooks


Intro:  G chord, adding C# to it, moving into D

[Verse 1]
             D                            G             D
You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows.
         G               D/F#             Em             A
And a dreamer's just a vessel that must follow where it goes
            D                            
Trying to learn from what's behind him
            Bm               G
And never knowing what's in store
            D     
Makes each day a constant battle 
          A                D 
Just to stay between the shores

[chorus]
            D                        G         D
And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry,
        G            D/F#         Em           A
Like a bird upon the wind these waters are my sky
            D                    G         
I'll never reach my destination if I never try
           D                        A          D
So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.

[Verse 2]
           D                               G            D
Too many times we stand aside and let the waters slip away 
              G            D#/F#       Em           A
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow has now become today 
               D                         Bm            G
So don't you sit upon the shoreline and say you're satisfied 
  D                              A                 D
Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tide.

[chorus]
            D                       G          D
And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry,
        G            D/F#        Em            A
Like a bird upon the wind these waters are my sky
             D                              G         
I'll never reach my destination if I never try
           D                       A          D 
So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.

[Bridge]

D   D/C#           Bm                 G
       And there's bound to be rough waters 
       D                   G
And I know I'll take some falls 
              Em               D/F#
But with the good Lord as my captain 
       G                    A          modulate into E:
I can make it through them all


 [chorus] (there are no chords played during the first 2 lines)
            E                       A          E        
And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry,
        A            E/G#        F#m           B
Like a bird upon the wind these waters are my sky
             E                  A                                  
I'll never reach my destination if I never try
           E                       B          E     A
So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.
             E             
Yes, I will sail my vessel 
           B         A
'Til the river runs dry 
                     E
'Til the river runs dry
