Bea's Song
Cowboy Junkies

intro:

C ( 4 times)
( there is no chorus to this song)


(v1)


C
Speed river at my feet running low and flat
     Am
I'm sitting here burning daylight thinking bout the past
         F                                            C
and the distance out there where the earth meets the sky
       G                                         F
The slightest move and this river mud pulls me further down
 G                           F                   C
John's at my side but he's sitting on firmer ground


(v2)
  C
John says I look at the moon and the stars
 Am
these days more often than I look into his eyes
       F                              C
and I cant disagree so I dont say nothing
        G                               F
I just stare on past his face at Venus rising
        G                F                      C
like a shiney speck of hope hanging over the horizion


(v3)
  C
With each passing year that I sit here
      Am
that horizion seems to inch just that much nearer
     F                                        C
and all that appears on it seems as clear as spit
        G
But if there's one thing in my life 
                      F
that these years have taught its
              G              F
that you can always see it coming
                       C
but you can never stop it

(v4)

C
Speed river at my feet running low and flat
     Am
I'm sitting here burning daylight thinking bout the past
         F                                            C
and the distance out there where the earth meets the sky
       G                                         F
The slightest move and this river mud pulls me further down
 G                           F                   C
John's at my side but he's not noticing that I'm drowning
       G                                         F
The slightest move and this river mud pulls me further down
 G                           F                   C
John's at my side but he's not noticing that I'm drowning
