River Of Ruin
by Donovan
(Capo 2n Fret)

 Verse:                        

     (R1)               D        Dsus2 D 
The cards are stacked against me
    (R2)         D   Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
The stars are at war
           A         G/F# G     
Wherever I turn dear 
                   D
I find the locked door

   (R1)              D
My hands are circularly bound
     (R2)        D
It's all a stalemate
            A         G/F# G
But I don't worry none 
            A   Asus4 A
I just sit wait

 Chorus:

       (R1)       D
For it never gets dark anymore 
               A   Asus2 A Asus2 A
since I'm with you
               A
There may be a storm outside my door 
                   D   Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
but that's nothing new

                 D           D7
I'll weather the storm, sweetheart
               G   (R3)  E
With you by my side
                    A
And we'll cross the river of ruin 
              D    Dsus4 D
Be it ever so wide

 Verse:
     (R1)          D         Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
Things are looking black dear
    (R2)         D   Dsus2 D 
The future looks dim 
                A        G/F# G  
I jumped in the deep end
                 D
To find I can't swim

     (R4)          D
They poured in the concrete 
                  D
The quick drying kind
                  A        G
It looks like the end dear 
                   D    Dsus4 D
But I really don't mind

 Chorus:

         (R1)     D
For it's never so black anymore 
               A   Asus2 A Asus2 A
Since I'm with you
          Asus2 A
There may be a storm outside my door 
    (R2)           D   Dsus2 D Dsus2 D
But that's nothing new

                          D           D7
You know I'll weather the storm, sweetheart
               G   (R3)  E
With you by my side
                    A
And we'll cross the river of ruin 
      (R2)    D    Dsus4 D
Be it ever so wide

         (R1)       D
Yes it's never gets dark anymore 
               A   Asus2 A Asus2 A
Since I'm with you
               A
There may be a storm outside my head 
    (R2)           D   Dsus2 D
But that's nothing new

                 D           D7
I'll weather the storm, sweetheart
               G   (R3)  E
With you by my side
                    A
And we'll cross the river of ruin 
      (R2)    D    Dsus2 D
Be it ever so wide
