Chord Gitar Dry The River – New Ceremony

By | November 15, 2021

                  C
I waited by your bedside,
    E                  Am
And couldn’t close my eyes all night.
   F                C
I named you like a prayer.

                C
It’s anybody’s guess how,
     E        Am
The angel of doubt came down,
    F                Em
And  crept into your bed.
         
              C            E            Am
But after we danced to the shipping forecast,
     Dm                 G
The words escaped your mouth:
                    C                Dm         C
“I know it’s gotta stop love, but I don’t know how.”

                             C
Now the stairs forget your shoes,
         E          Am
And the gate don’t creak for want of you.
         F            C
But the jury’s out on me.
                       C
We’re wise beyond our years,
           E            Am
But we’re good at bad ideas, my love.
   F              Em
Or so it seems to be.

 C
Shine a little light,
       E7
Don’t wrestle with the night,
       Dm                    G
Don’t think about the future now.
                   C               Dm         C
I know it’s gotta stop love but I don’t know how.

Dm                        C
My little one, my kettle drum,(I know I had a message at the start.)
Dm                          C
My babel tongue, my come-undone,(I know I had a message at the start.)

Dm                        C
My prison kiss, my dying wish,(I know I had a message at the start.)
Dm                                                        E7
But it up and abandoned us, when we were sleeping in our beds.

  C              
Shine a little light,
       E7
Don’t wrestle with the night,
        Dm                    G
Don’t think about the future now.
                   C              Dm         C
I know it’s gotta stop love but I don’t know how.

Dm                        C
My little one, my kettle drum,(I know I had a message at the start.)
Dm                          C
My babel tongue, my come-undone,(I know I had a message at the start.)
Dm                        C
My prison kiss, my dying wish,(I know I had a message at the start.)
Dm                                                        E7
But it up and abandoned us, when we were sleeping in our beds.
                C            E         Am      
It’s anybody’s guess how the angel of doubt laid down and
F                 Em
Sang beneath our house.
                   C               Dm          C
I know it’s gotta stop love, but I don’t know how.
                   C                Dm         C
I know it’s gotta stop love, but I don’t know how.
