Maid of the River  Levellers

She's the maid of the river
[C]So beautifully plain
[G]As fresh as the country
[Am]That gave her her name
[Am]As crisp as the snow
[C]And as swift as the rain
[G]She shone like the sun
[Am]Before all of our games
[Am]She shone like a jewel
[C]But her price was not gold
[G]She cried more than most
[Am]When her story was told
[Am]But her people were evil
[C]Left her baron and cold
[G]And her heart went to market
[Am]Where her body was sold
I said h[Am]ey hey won[Am/C]'t you take[C] me away
Because [G]I can't see the point
In the [Am]dawn of the day
When so[Am] many killers gonna[C] take you away
And lea[G]ve little left except ha[Am]tred
She's t[E]he goddess of love
The godd[Am]ess in green
The godd[E]ess of all
That I[Am]'ve ever seen
Goddess [E]of hope
The godd[Am]ess in brown
The god[E]dess of all
That you've burned to the ground
(repeat chord sequence throughout )
There's all kind of hatred
Flows out of man's hands
There's the hatred that strangles
The throat of a man
But the worst of all hatred
Is that which is planned
Against what we have
In this goddess of land
