Ripple  The Grateful Dead

Intro
[G]     [C]     [G]     [D]     [C]     [G] 
If my words could glow with the glow of [C]sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp un[G]strung
Would you hear my voice come through the [C]music?
Would you [G]hold it [D]near [C]as it were your [G]own?

It's a hand-me-down; the thoughts are [C]broken
Perhaps they're better left un[G]sung.
I don't know; don't really [C]care
[G]Let there be [D]songs [C]to fill the [G]air.

[Am]Ripple in still [D]water
Where there [G]is no pebble [C]tossed
Nor [A]wind to [D]blow

Reach out your [G]hand if your cup is [C]empty
If your cup is full, may it be a[G]gain
Let it be known there is a [C]fountain
[G]That was not [D]made [C]by the hand of [G]men

There is a road no simple [C]highway
Between the dawn and the dark of [G]night
And if you go no one may [C]guide you
[G]That path is [D]for [C]your steps a[G]lone

Chorus
You must [G]choose to lead or [C]follow
But if you fall you fall [G]alone
And if you stand then who's to [C]guide you?
[G]If I knew the [D]way, [C]I would take you [G]home.

Very accurate? Try these lyrics:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps they're better left unsung.
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

La....
