Intro: Em C G 

G             Em                   C              G
On the way to your brother's house in the valley, dear,
G            Em              C               G
By the river Bridge a cradle floating beside me.
G              Em           C                 G
In the whitest water on the banks against the stone
G                 Em            C                   G
You will lift his body from the shore and bring him home

Chorus: 
C      G     C             G    Em C  G       
Oliver James washed in the rain no longer
C      G     C             G    Em C  G    
Oliver James washed in the rain no longer


G              Em              C               G
On the kitchen table that your grandfather did make
G              Em              C                G
You and your delicate way will slowly clean his fate
G                 Em             C                   G
And you will remember when you rehearsed the actions of
G               Em             C               G
An innocent and anxious mother full of anxious love

Chorus:
C      G     C             G    Em C  G   
Oliver James washed in the rain no longer
C      G     C             G    Em C  G   
Oliver James washed in the rain no longer


Am                C               Am                 C
Walk with me down Ruby Beach and through the valley floor
C             Em                 G G C C D C G 
Love for the one you know more

G                    Em             C              G
The sound of ancient voices ringing soft upon your ear
