    THE RIVER AND THE HIGHWAY  by Pam Tillis

Intro chords  D A G  D A G

D                A               G
She follows the path of least resistance
      D              A                G
She doesn't care to see the mountain top
      D                         A          G
She twistS and turns with no regard to distance
D           A         G
She never comes to a stop
         D  A            G
And she rolls, she's a river
          D  A            G
Where she goes time will tell
       D  A                    G
Heaven knows he can't go with her
        D  A            G      A       Bm     A   G
And she rolls all by herself  all by herself
       D            A        G
He's headed for a single destination
             D           A              G
He doesn't care what's standing in his path
        D                  A          G
He's a line between two points of separation
    D                  A              G 
He ends just where it says to on the map
       D  A            G             D A             G
And he rolls he's high-way  Where he goes time will tell
        D  A                    G
Heaven knows she can't go with him  
       D  A           G       A       Bm     A   G
And he rolls all by himself  all by himself

      G                     D
And every now and then, he offers her a shoulder
      G                            D
And every now and then, she over-flows.
     G                     D              Bm
And every now and than, a bridge crosses over
        F                        A
It's a moment that every lover knows
        D   A
And she rolls (and he rolls)
          G
she's a river (he's a highway)
          D  A
Where she goes (where he goes)
            G
time will tell (time will tell)
       D  A                     G
heaven knows she can't go with him (he can't go with her)
         D  A           G
and she rolls all by herself
       D  A           G
And he rolls all by himself
A          D
Fare thee well
