C(riff)- you can either play the C chord or just hit the root note but you might find that the root by itself
sounds better.the last chord in the riff is a D7 chord, make sure you place the root or it wont sound right.

VERSE 1

C              Em            F
Many rivers to cross
      E                  F    G         C 
But I just can't seem to find,  my way over
C               Em   F      E       F
Wandering, I am lost,  as I travel along
G                    C
The white cliffs of Dover
C               Em      F
Many rivers to cross
         E       F   G                C
And it's only my will  that keeps me alive
                C                     Em    F
Well I've been licked, washed up for years
      E       F       G                C
And I merely survived   because of my pride

CHORUS 1

F          G                 C               C7
  And this loneliness won't leave me alone
F              G          C             C7
  It's such a drag to be on your own
F           G          C(Riff)             D7
  My woman left me and she didn't say why
                        G
Well I guess I have to try 

SOLO(chords same as Verse)

Sweet thing

Sweet thing

CHORUS 2

F          G                     C               C7
  And this loneliness just won't leave me alone
F                      G          C             C7
  You know it's such a drag to be on your own
F           G              C(Riff)         D7
  My woman left me but she didn't say why
                      G
So I guess I have to try, try

VERSE 2
C           Em        F    E
Many, many rivers to cross

                  F      G
But just where to begin
                 C
I'm praying for time 
                              Em    F           E
There have been times I found myself sitting in limbo
F      G              C
Alone, alone, for my lifetime

OUTRO VERSE

C               Em     F
Many rivers to cross
      E                   F   G        C
But I just can't seem to find,  my way over
C                Em  F       E      F     G
Wandering, I am lost   as I travel along
                     C
The white cliffs of Dover
