Don't Go Near the Water  Johnny Cash

From the [A]fountains in the mountains
comes the [E]water running cool and clear and [A]blue.
And it [A]comes down from the hills
and it [E]goes down to the towns and passes [A]through.
When it [D]gets down to the cities,
then the water turns into a dirty [A]gray.
It's [A]poisoned and polluted
by the [E]people as it goes along its [A]way.
[D]Don't go near the water children,
see the fish all dead upon the [A]shore.
[D]Don't go near the water,
cause the [A]water isn't [E]water any-[A]more.
I took my boy fishin' to my old favorite fishin' hole.
I had caught many a fish out of that deep, clear water,
From the time I was a boy like him.
After we'd fished a few minutes, he said: "Did you get a bite yet daddy?"
I said: "I think I got a nibble son."
"Me too", he said.
Then he said: "Daddy if we catch a fish can we eat it?"
I said: "Well there was a time son.
This water's bad now and I might not be safe to eat the fish, but there was a time."
There [A]was a time the air was clean
and [E]you could see forever cross the [A]plains.
The [A]wind was sweet as honey
and no [E]one had ever heard of acid [A]rain.
We're [D]torturin' the earth
and pourin' every kind of evil in the [A]sea.
We [A]violated nature
and our [E]children have to pay the penal-[A]ty.
[D]Don't go near the water children,
see the fish all dead upon the [A]shore.
[D]Don't go near the water,
cause the [A]water isn't [E]water any-[A]more.
[D]Don't go near the water children,
see the fish all dead upon the [A]shore.
[D]Don't go near the water,
cause the [A]water isn't [E]water any-[A]more.
