E                       Aadd9
Though the river flows, gently to the sea
D5add6        Aadd9     E
He was on the shore,    rooted like a tree
E                       Aadd9
She was here and there, riding on the waves
D5add6             Aadd9              E
Through it all she heard his call and gave it all she gave.
B/F#                      Aadd9/E
And though their love was hangin' on a limb
E                       F#madd4/C# G#m/D#       Aadd9/E
She taught him how to dance,             and start again
B/F#                      Aadd9/E
And though their love was hangin' on a limb
E                       F#madd4/C# G#m/D# Aadd9/E B/F#
She taught him how to dance.

And when the melody, through the window called
It echoed in the courtyard and whispered in the halls
He played it through the night, she knew he had to go
There was something about freedom he thought he didn't know.

And though their love was hangin' on a limb
She taught him how to dance and start again
And though their love was hangin' on a limb
She taught him how to dance.

E / / / Aadd9 / / / D5add6 / Aadd9 / E / / /

Though the river flowed, gently to the sea
He was on the shore, rooted like a tree
She was here and there, riding on the waves
Through it all she heard his call and gave it all she gave.

B/F#                      Aadd9/E
And though their love was hangin' on a limb
E                       F#madd4/C# G#m/D# Aadd9/E...
She taught him how to dance.

Malc's Postscript:
I personally like to play it in a standard slack D, DGCFAD,
but avoiding the 6th string most of the time. This enables
me to play the solo section tabbed below on one guitar
and gives a good feel, IMO, for what is happening on record
using several guitars. To play it this way use the chord=20
shapes below and play the solo section between verses.
