Verse 1:

Cmaj7
She ran until her face was numb with cold

Fmaj7
And wore a cotton gown that blazed the night untold

Cmaj7
She ran until her feet refused to hold

Fmaj7
So heavy a heart for someone merely ten years old

Pre chorus:

Cmaj7
And when she reached the river
                               
Her knees began to shiver, 

    Fmaj7
her head with pounding voices from home

Cmaj7                          
Behind her was a vision

                           Fmaj7 
a painful apparition of a darker world that

No one should know

CHORUS:

Dm7                Am7              Fmaj7 Dm7
.......Somebody's bed will never be warm again, 

                Am7                 Fmaj7
the river will keep this friend................

Dm7                     Am7              Fmaj7 Dm7   
.......Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again,

           Cmaj7
no never again

Verse 2:

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

Chorus:

Somebody's bed will never be warm again, 
The river will keep this friend. 
Yeah somebody's bed will never be warm again, 
No never again.
