C    
She ran until her face was numb with cold and
         F                                 Am
Wore a cotton gown that blazed the night untold.
C
She ran until her feet refused to hold
            F                                 Am
So heavy a heart for someone merely ten years old.
     C                               F
And when she reached the river her knees began to shiver,
     Am                              F
Her head with pounding voices from home.
   C                         F
Behind her was a vision, a painful apparition
       Am                             F          Dm7
Of a darker world that no-one should know.


 Dm7        F                 Am    G
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                 F         Am      Dm7
The river will keep this friend.
Dm7              F                 Am    G
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           Em
No never again.


      C  
She dived beneath the water's icy skin,
            F                                 Am
Hoping the cold would kill the smell of angry gin,
     C
Her eyes grew wider than they'd ever been                                               
                     F                            Am
Just wishing the numbness to cut deeper with its pins.
    C                            F
And as her body lay there she decided to stay there
        Am                      F
Till darkness came to pull her away.
        C                       F
And beautifully she sank as up river was the bank
              Am                    F           Dm7
Where some bodiless troubles would stay.


 Dm7        F                 Am     G 
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                F          Am      Dm7
The river will keep this friend.
 Dm7             F                 Am    G
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           Em           Dm7
No never again.


Dm7         F                 Am     G
Somebody's bed will never be warm again,
                F          Am       Dm7
The river will keep this friend.
Dm7              F                 Am     G
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,
           Em
No never again.

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.
