The River

Chorus:

Bm G

I've been here longer and I'm stronger

A D

And I've seen as much as any man

Bm G

many's crossed me but none have bossed me

A Bm

And I don't believe they ever can

D Bm G

Hello son I see you're wearin' a gun

G A

And you say you're on your way into town

D Bm G

You say your Ma told you not to but you feel you got to

G A

Get that man that gunned your daddy down

From the sheriff's office to the gallows boy

That's a mighty mighty short walk

So while you water your horse son let you and I take it easy

And have a little talk

Chorus

Well I can see that you're angry

And I guess you've got plenty right to be

But the law can handle your daddy's killer

Mch better than you or me

And remember your promise you made your mother

That you never would fought on a gun

So go on home to her boy cause she needs you

She wouldn't stand to lose her only son

Well I see you thought it over

And I'm glad to see you going home boy

And you wanna know what they call me

Well I'm just the river they call me the Mississippi
