Cowboy Junkies

G  Am  C   G  2x Then 
D  Am  C   G Bm  C G C G

  G                      Am
I buried him down by the river
         C                     G
'Cause thats where he liked to be.
      G                  Am        
And every night when the moon is high
  C                    G
I go there and weep openly.

D             Am
He and I were married 
        C                       G 
By the river 'neath this willow tree
        Bm                 Am 
And with God and friends witnessing on
Am             C      G 
He pledged his life to me

G            Am          C          G
To me he was earth, I rooted in his soil.
  G          Am 
I to he was sky vast and free
       C                     G
Of the burdens from which he toiled.

D                  Am
Then one night a terrible fight
       C                   G  
Words spoken better left unsaid.
        Bm                        Am         
With his wedding vows ringing in my ears
            C       G
He gave his life to me.

BREAK: G  Am  C   G  2x  D  Am  C   G Bm  C G C G

G                      Am
They say to love is to bury
     C                        G
Those demons from which we all hide,
      D                               Bm
But tonight by this river 'neath this willow tree
    Bm           Am        G    
Becoming one are earth and sky.
