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.
