CC chord    
She ran until her face was numb with cold and
         FF chord                                 AmAm chord
Wore a cotton gown that blazed the night untold.
CC chord
She ran until her feet refused to hold
            FF chord                                 AmAm chord
So heavy a heart for someone merely ten years old.
     CC chord                               FF chord
And when she reached the river her knees began to shiver,
     AmAm chord                              FF chord
Her head with pounding voices from home.
   CC chord                         FF chord
Behind her was a vision, a painful apparition
       AmAm chord                             FF chord          Dm7Dm7 chord
Of a darker world that no-one should know.
 
 
 Dm7Dm7 chord        FF chord                 AmAm chord    GG chord
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                 FF chord         AmAm chord      Dm7Dm7 chord
The river will keep this friend.
Dm7Dm7 chord              FF chord                 AmAm chord    GG chord
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           EmEm chord
No never again.
 
 
      CC chord  
She dived beneath the water's icy skin,
            FF chord                                 AmAm chord
Hoping the cold would kill the smell of angry gin,
     CC chord
Her eyes grew wider than they'd ever been                                               
                     FF chord                            AmAm chord
Just wishing the numbness to cut deeper with its pins.
    CC chord                            FF chord
And as her body lay there she decided to stay there
        AmAm chord                      FF chord
Till darkness came to pull her away.
        CC chord                       FF chord
And beautifully she sank as up river was the bank
              AmAm chord                    FF chord           Dm7Dm7 chord
Where some bodiless troubles would stay.
 
 
 Dm7Dm7 chord        FF chord                 AmAm chord     GG chord 
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                FF chord          AmAm chord      Dm7Dm7 chord
The river will keep this friend.
 Dm7Dm7 chord             FF chord                 AmAm chord    GG chord
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           EmEm chord           Dm7Dm7 chord
No never again.
 
 
Dm7Dm7 chord         FF chord                 AmAm chord     GG chord
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                FF chord          AmAm chord       Dm7Dm7 chord
The river will keep this friend.
Dm7Dm7 chord              FF chord                 AmAm chord     GG chord
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           EmEm chord
No never again.
