Ripple

Grateful Dead

Intro
 GCGDCG
 C
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
 G
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
 C
Would you hear my voice come through the music?
 GDCG
Would you hold it near as it were your own?
 C
It's a hand-me-down; the thoughts are broken
 G
Perhaps they're better left unsung.
 C
I don't know; don't really care
 GDCG
 Let there be songs to fill the air.
 AmD
 Ripple in still water
 GC
Where there is no pebble tossed
 AD
Nor wind to blow
 GC
Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
 G
If your cup is full, may it be again
 C
Let it be known there is a fountain
 GDCG
 That was not made by the hand of men
 C
There is a road no simple highway
 G
Between the dawn and the dark of night
 C
And if you go no one may follow
 GDCG
 That path is for your steps alone
 AmD
 Ripple in still water
 GC
Where there is no pebble tossed
 AD
Nor wind to blow
 GC
You who choose to lead must follow
 G
But if you fall you fall alone
 C
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
 GDCG
 If I knew the way, I would take you home.
Verse chords over the hum; everybody sing!
La-n-da-da-da-daa......

Good job - very accurate.

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....
