Verse 1: Mainly just played with the riff in the background

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But think that I should have been.

Chorus: Single strokes

F
Hold back the river let me look in your eyes
F
Hold back the river so I
Bb
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
F
Hold back the river, hold back

Verse 2:

F             Bb
Once upon a different life
      F                    C
We rode our bikes into the sky
  F            Bb
Now we call against the tide
       F                       C
Those distant days are flashing by

Chorus:

Bb
Hold back the river let me look in your eyes
Bb                  F
Hold back the river so I
Bb
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Bb                  C
Hold back the river, hold back

Refrain:

F     F    Bb   F    Bb   F    C
Hold oho, oho, oho, oho, oho, oho
F             F                      Bb             Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander, let us hold each other
F             F                      Bb             Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander, let us hold each other
