verse 1:
[G]As a little gi[D]rl I came d[A]own to the water with a
[G]little [D]stone in my h[A]and and it would shimmer and
[G]sing, and i kn[D]ew every[A]thing
[G]As a little gi[D]rl I came d[A]own
In a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what went wrong when there is nothing so cruel
Than to bury that jewel
When it was mine all along, and I'm gonna find it
[D]You're sh[G]ini[D]ng[A], I can see you
[D]You're [G]smi[D]lin[A]g, that's enough well
[D]I'm ho[G]ldi[D]ng o[A]nto you like a
[G]Diamond in[D] the r[A]ough
Every now and then I can see that I am getting somewhere
Where I have to go is so deep
I was angry back then, and you know I still am
but I have lost too much sleep and I'm gonna find it
Bridge: verse chords
Snakes in the grass better step on the gas
Snakes in the grass better step on the gas
In my dreams I go down by the water with a
little girl in my arms and we shimmer and sing
And we know everything, yeah
In my dreams I go down (down, I go down...)
