From Paradise  Archie Roach

From Paradise - Archie Roach
[G] [Em] [G] [Em]  
[G]She was born in the [Em]river land.
[G]Born of her mother [D]into her mothers [C]hands.
[G]She was free as the [C]river was wild.
[G]And she was so innocent, [D]such a beautiful [C]child.
[G]Then they took her away from [Em]Paradise.
[C]Ahh where everything was [G]beautiful and [D]very nice.
[G]They took her away from her [Em]mothers tongue.
Then [C]slapped her around a [G]little bit, to [D]teach her another [G]one.
[G]In and out of ins-ti-[Em]tutions.
[G]What could they do with this child, [D]where was the neat so[C]lution.
There was nothing they could [G]do, so they gave her [Em]to the streets.
And she [G]joined all the rest of the [D]hungry and the tired [C]feet.
[G]Then they took her away from [Em]Paradise.
[C]Ahh where everything was [G]beautiful and [D]very nice.
[G]They took her away from her [Em]mothers tongue.
Then [C]slapped her around a [G]little bit, to [D]teach her another [G]one.
And the [C]Pondees they don't [G]swim here any [D]more.[D7]
She [G]met a boy, who [Em]kind of knew.
[G]Some of the things [D]that she was [C]going through.
But he was [G]confused, so he [C]ran away.
She [G]found him again and [D]here she is to[C]day, here in my heart.
[G]Then they took her away from [Em]Paradise.
[C]Ahh where everything was [G]beautiful and [D]very nice.
[G]They took her away from her [Em]mothers tongue.
Then [C]slapped her around a [G]little bit, to [D]teach her another [G]one.
[G]Took her away from [Em]Paradise, a[G]way from [Em]Paradise.
[G]Ooh, from [Em]Paradise.
[G]Ooh, from [Em]Paradise.
Enjoy!
