Blood Red River

(Beth Orton)

Lyrics

Capo 2 (only uses middle 4 strings)
Am C Am C

Am
Took a friend I found
      C
Cross some blood red river
Am
Never did find my way home
   C
In time to forgive her


Am              C              E              E7
Why must people always fall for what they can't have
Am             C                E            E7 
Why must people always grab what they'd never grasp


Am
How did we get so far
C                 E
How do we move so fast away
         E7             Am
From the lilac and lilied lake
    C              E
I'm sure it used to stay
     E7           Am C E
Is it only a dream away


Am
Took a raft I found
      C
Cross some blood red river
Am
Never did find my way home
   C
In time for my dinner
Am              C                   E          E7
Why must people always fall for what they never have
Am         C               E          E7
Why is it a crime to miss a part of you that's bled


Am
How did we get so far
C                 E
How do we move so fast away
         E7              Am
From the lilac and lilied lake
    C              E
I'm sure it used to stay
      E7              Am C E
Is it only a dream away
E7           Am   C E E7 Am C E E7
Only a dream away away


Am
Lost a friend
        C
I found down some blood red river.
Am
Never did find my way home
   C
In time to forget her


Am              C                E        E7
Why must people always want what they can't have
Am              C              E        E7
Why must people always take but forget to ask


Am
How did we get so far
C                 E
How do we move so fast away
         E7             Am
From the lilac and lilied lake
            C              E
Where we're told we used to play
     E7           Am
Is it only a dream away
C      E     E7             Am C    E E7
Only a dream only a dream away away yeah
Am C E Am
