[Verse I]
Am7   B/C  C        F        C
Tried to...keep you close to me,
    F        C         Gsus4  G
But life got in between........
Am7   B/C   C         F     C
Tried to...square not being there
    F          C                 Gsus4  G
But think that I should have been........

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

[Verse II]
Am7  B/C  C     F         C
Once u....pon a different life
   F        C                 Gsus4  G
We rode our bikes into the sky........
    Am7  B/C  C      F          C
But now..we...crawl against the tide
      F       C                 Gsus4  G
Those distant days are flashing by......

[Chorus]
F
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
F
Hold back the river so I
      C                         
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
                     G
Hold back the river, hold back
F
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
F
Hold back the river so I
      C
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
                     G
Hold back the river, hold back

Am7  B/C  C    F   C
Ooh.................
