G5                  E5    
The river rolls and the river winds
       C5           G5                D5
And it seems to do something for my peace of mind
G5                                    E5
Though I didn't know it, I came here looking to find
           C5               D5
A place to forget about my troubles for awhile

        D5               G5                      C5
I saw a mother with her little baby when I was walking here
        D5                        G5                  C5
There's something 'bout a little baby that makes me laugh
D5                  G5
They don't seem to have a care
      C5                        E5            D5
And I wonder if I'm ever gonna feel that way again
                           C5       D5                 G5
Until then, I'll find some time to spend down by the river

      Then this repeats for the other verses

I spend a lot of time looking forward
Looking back and looking down at my feet upon the ground
I fell backwards and when I opened my eyes
I found myself staring straight up in the sky
And it seemed like there was something there to learn
When I realized I had nowhere else to be
And the only sound that mattered was the wind that blowed so gentle through the trees

Such a harmony down by the river

Well I heard music, it was soft and clear
And I sang out for the first time, I didn't care who would hear
Because I found my answers in the wind and waves
And the magic in the little things that happen every day
And I played that tune on my old mandolin
And I didn't hurt at all for company
