[Verse]

Dm7      F          Bb     F
Tried to keep you close to me,
    Bb       F        C
But life got in between
Dm7       F         Bb      F
Tried to square not being there
     Bb        F                C
But think that I should have been


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

Dm7    F     Bb        F
Once upon a different life
    Bb       F                C
We rode our bikes into the sky
    Dm7      F      Bb        F
But now we crawl against the tide
      Bb       F                C
Those distant days are flashing by


[Chorus]

Bb
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Bb
Hold back the river so I
F                         
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
                      C
Hold back the river, hold back
Bb
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes

Hold back the river so I
F
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
                      C
Hold back the river, hold back


[Interlude]

Dm7  F    Bb   F
Ooh oho, oho, oho,
 Bb   F    C   
Oho, oho, ohooh


[Bridge]

F                                     Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Gm
Let us hold each other
F                                     Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Gm
Let us hold each other


[Chorus]

Bb
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Bb
Hold back the river so I
F                         
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
                      C
Hold back the river, hold back
Bb
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Bb
Hold back the river so I
F
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
                      C
Hold back the river, ooh


[Bridge]

F                                     Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Gm
Let us hold each other
F                                     Bb
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Gm
Let us hold each other
