Green River, I've come back to you
A
 Do you remember me
                E     F#                   B7
Do you remember Mommy   with the soft blue eyes?
  E
I left you with a lot of dreams
A
 None of them came true
                       B7              E
What I wanted was here waiting all the time

      B                        B7      E
Green River, did she come back   every evening
         B                      B7         E
Like the neighbors said she did so faithfully
      A                           E
Green River, has she gone away forever?
         F#
She just disappeared one day
   B7
As she gave up on me

      E
Green River, if you see her
          A
Won't you tell her I've returned?
                       E    F#                B7  
All I brought her is myself   and this little ring
       E
Please tell her that I love her
       A
And my lesson I have learned
                      B7                  E
Green River, tell her please come back to me
