Grief Came Riding Chords

   
Grief Came Riding (by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds)

INTRO (Verse chords)

VERSE 1 (Am-G-F-C / F-Dm-F-Dm-G) 
Grief came riding, on the wind, up the sullen river Tims
I was sitting on the bank with my mouth open, and I felt it enter in.
I began thinking our wedding day, and how love was a vow.
I was thinking about the chamber door only we can enter now.
I began thinking about our ancient friends, and of kissing them goodbye
And then the wind blew under Batersy Bridge and a tear broke from my eye
I started thinking about London, how nothing good ever came from this town
And if the Tims weren't so filthy I would jump in the river and drown

CHORUS [(G-F-C)-G-C / Am-G-C]
Don't be afraid, come on down
I'm just sitting here and thinking aloud

VERSE 2
Grief came riding, on the wind, up the river where the bridges cross
Blowing people back and forth, from the marital bed to the psychiatric couch
Blowing people far apart, blowing others so they collide
Blowing some poor bastard out of the water, and another one over the side
Hear the ancient iron bridge, and listen to it groan
With the weight of a thousand people, people who are returning home

To their failures, to their boredoms, to their husbands and their wives
Who will carve them up for dinner before they even arrive.

CHORUS 
Don't be afraid, come on down
I'm just sitting here and thinking aloud

*PIANO SOLO (over Verse chords)

VERSE 3
And I look there just below the water, see the savior of the human race
With the fishers and the frogs, has found his final resting place

CHORUS 
Don't be afraid, come on down
I'm just sitting here thinking aloud

"Chorded by Deckard Croix"
