Em                                A
   There's a little girl out lyin' on her own
Gbm7                    Bm
     She's got a broken heart
Em                               A
   She's not the kind to take you down for long
Gbm7                        Bm
     She knows and plays it smart


Em                  A      Gbm7            Bm
-Ah--- And if she's comin' she's showed no mark
Em                    A              Gbm7      Bm
-Ah--- She's heard no whistle blowin' from the dark
Em                    A              Gbm7        Bm
-Ah--- She feels like leavin' and she don't know why
Em                                     A7
-Ah--- Without no Bridges she's trapped, so I sigh


D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
D             G            D            G
  Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side
         A
All your life
         G  C    G   Em  Gbm7  Bm
You were on your own


Bm                  G       D
If you want you can ride my train
    Gb                                 D
And soon forget the reason that you're leaving
       G                 Em7  A7  D
You'll lose yourself and then sometime
           D7                 G
Maybe even save yourself some grievin'


   Em7  A  Gbm7  Bm     Em7  A7  D
Oh,        oh,       oh,     oh


D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
D             G            D            G
  Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side
D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
D             G            D            G
  Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side
D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
D                 G            D              G
  Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide ...

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
