The Rivers  Cheryl Wheeler

CAPO: 4th Fret
In the afternoon [D]light, [G]riding a[C]round
Riding my bike [G]all over [D]town
They [G]said on T[D]V, that [C]out west right now
The [G]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
And it was hard to be[D]lieve, [G]watching it [C]win
Kept coming down and [G]kept coming [D]in
And [G]finally [D]reached where our [Em]great cities stand
Now the [C]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
And [Am]once more we find out, in [D]case we forgot
[G]Just who is strong here and [Em]just who is not
As [Am]if we could hand her some [D]route that we'd plot
And now the [G]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
It lifted the [D]trash, it [G]lifted the [C]gold
And lifted the lives [G]too weak to [D]hold
[G]All swept in[D]to some di[C]luvian fold
The [G]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
And it's like all that we've [D]done, has [G]seeped from the [C]sea
It's been, take what you want and [G]leave what you [D]leave
We [G]sure have been [D]pigs since [Em]Adam and Eve
Now the [C]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
And [Am]I love the thought of us [D]all being one
But [G]kids in the third grade pack [Em]needles and guns
And [Am]now we might die if we [D]lie in the sun
And the [G]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
Salt of the [D]earth, [G]ebb and the [C]flow
All that we have and [G]more than we [D]know
[G]Laden with [D]garbage from [C]decades ago
The [G]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
Well, maybe one [D]day the [G]great salty [C]blue
Will swallow us up with [G]all that we [D]knew
And [G]things will start [D]over like [Em]they always do
When the [C]rivers can [D]poison [G]us[D] [Em]
The [C]rivers can [D]poison [G]us
