about

Done in the style of early Up in the Air. Driving conga line gives it that latin flavor, along with the flute lines darting in and out throughout the piece.

lyrics

Like a River Flows
(by John Beccia)

(am-G-am-G-am-G-am)

am
Do we just go on livin' day to day
E7
Where there is a will, there will be a way
am-A7 dm - adim7
There will come a time, come a time that shows
C G F E7 am-G-am-G-am-G-am-
And so we just move on just like a river flows

am
Once we were so young, and we had our dreams
E7
That we tried to hold, who knows what it means
am-A7 dm-adim7
It might really be...some kind of joke, who knows
C G F E7 am---
And so we just move on just like a river flows

dm am
Through the ups and downs, through the highs and lows
E7 am
Good will come from bad, like from the thorn, the rose
dm am
Will we ever learn something, I suppose
C G F E7 am-G-am-G-am-G-am-
And so we just move on just like a river flows

am
So we just go on doing what we can
E7
Tryin' to do what's right, workin' for the man
am-A7 dm-adim7
Every man comes from...a little boy that grows
C G F E7 am---
And so we (just move on just like a river)(3X)flows

Instrumental (am--G-am--G-am--G-E7----am-A7-dm-adim7--C-G-F-E7-am)

dm am
Every breakin' day, as the rooster crows
E7 am
From the fallin' night, there's a light that grows
dm am
As we look ahead, doors behind us close
C G F E7 am-G-am-G-am-G-am
And so we just move on just like a river flows

am
No matter what may come, it'll be okay
E7
We will make it through, we will find a way
am-A7 dm-adim7
Life's a precious thing. not something to dispose
C G F E7 am---
And so we (just move on just like a river)(3X)flows
