Water

This is a song about one of the earth’s most precious resources.

Water

By Jeff Gilpin

August 18, 2012
Verse 1
[D]Living [G]on the [A]street
[D]Search for [G]food to [A]eat
[D]After a [G]while to [A]sleep
[A]Wea[C]ther [D]keeps getting [C]hot[A]ter

Verse 2
[D]Days run [G]into [A]days
[D]Long and [G]winding [A]haze
[D]Pathway [G]through the [A]maze
[A]Lea[C]ding [D]us to the [C]wa[A]ter

Chorus
[G]Cold refreshing [D]drink
Wash my thirst a[A]way
[G]Wash away the [D]streets
[C]Made it through another [E]day

Verse 3
[D]Learning [G]what you [A]need
[D]Basic ne[G]cessi[A]ties
[D]Shelter [G]rest and [A]feed
[A]And [C]some [D]clean running [C]wa[A]ter

Verse 4
[D]Get a [G]fish to [A]land
Or [D]search a [G]garbage [A]can
[D]Eat all [G]you can [A]stand
[A]Chase it [C]on [D]down with some [C]wa[A]ter

Chorus
[G]Cold refreshing [D]drink
Wash my thirst a[A]way
[G]Wash away the [D]streets
[C]Made it through another [E]day

Verse 5
[D]Into the [G]river it [A]goes
[D]Refuse [G]that we [A]throw
[D]Until [G]nothing [A]grows
[A]Poi[C]son [D]in the [C]wa[A]ter

Verse 6
[D]All the [G]fish will [A]die
Or [D]swim out [G]in the [A]tide
But [D]there they [G]cannot [A]hide
[A]Got [C]no [D]place in the [C]wa[A]ter

Chorus
[G]Cold refreshing [D]drink
Wash my thirst a[A]way
[G]Wash away the [D]streets
[C]Made it through another [E]day [G] [A]
A C D E G

Re: Water

thanks Dino...I know water is sometimes overlooked, but it may be as precious as oil in the future...I can just imagine "water speculators" driving the cost up if we don't watch out.

Re: Water

These lyrics definitely want to make me get a glass of water! Nice chord changes aswell, especially the use of C and E major, outside the tonic key of D major.

Re: Water

Thanks mc,

I didn't have the music theory behind me when I wrote it. It just seemd to fit the song.
