WATCHING THE RIVER FLOW- Bob Dylan

TUNING: E B E G# B E

A  E  A  TURNAROUND 1  

             A                           D
What's the matter with me? I don't have much to say
  A                               B 
Daylight's sneaking' through the window
                       E
And I'm still in this all night cafe
   A                  
Walking to and fro beneath the moon
                   D
Out to where the trucks are rolling slow
    A                   E                    A        TURNAROUND 2
Sit out on this bank of sand and watch the river flow

Wish I was back in the city instead of this ol' bank of sand
With the sun beatin' down over the chimney tops
And the one I love so close at hand
If I had wings and I could fly, I know where I would go
But right now I just sit here so contentedly
And watch the river flow   TURNAROUND 3

BRIDGE #1:
   E
People disagreein' on just about everything, yep
  A
Makes you stop and wonder why
          F#m                            B 
Why only yesterday I saw someone on the street
                    E
Who just couldn't help but cry

CHORUS:
         A
Wo, but this old river keeps on rollin' though
     D
No matter what gets in the way and which was the wind does blow
         A                     E
And as long as it does I just sit here
               A          TURNAROUND 1 (1ST TIME, 2ND TIME TO OUTRO)
And watch the river flow

SOLO (OVER VERSE CHORDS, END WITH TURNAROUND 3)

BRIDGE #2:
People disagreein' everywhere you look
Makes you want to stop and read a book
Why only yesterday I saw somebody on the street
That was a-really shook ...CHORUS

OUTRO:
D           A       D                A       D
Watch the river flow, watching the river flow
               A       D
Watching the river flow
              A                       E 
Well, I just sit out on this bank of sand
                     A   TURNAROUND 1, BUT END ON A7
And watch the river flow
