    E

      Been traveling these wide roads for so long

                     Asus2

    My heart’s been far from you ten thousand miles gone                     

    E

      Oh, I wanna come near and give ya Every part of me

    Asus2

      But there's blood on my hands and my lips are unclean

    E

      In my darkness I remember Momma’s words reoccur to me

    Asus2

      "Surrender to the good Lord and he’ll wipe your slate clean"

     

    Chorus:

    F#m                                  E

        Take me to your river   I wanna go   oh oh

    F#m                                   E

    oh  Take me to your river   I wanna know  

     

    E

    Dip me in your smooth waters I go in

          Asus2

    As a man with many crimes come up for air as my sins flow down

         E

    the Jordan   Oh, I wanna come near and give ya every part of me

    Asus2

       But there's blood on my hands and my lips are unclean

     

    Chorus

     

    Bridge:

             E (hold)

    I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go

              n.c.

    I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

           E

    Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go

           Asus2

    Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

           E

    Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go

            Asus2                      

    Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

     

    Chorus

     

    End on E
