DONíT GO NEAR THE WATER
INTRO:
D---------------------------|
A-------0-------2b-0---------|
E-0-2-4---3b-0---------------|
         A
From the fountains in the mountains
          E                                A
Comes the water running cool and clear and blue.
       A
And it comes down from the hills
       E                                 A
And it goes down to the towns and passes through.
        D
When it gets down to the cities,
                                  A
then the water turns into a dirty gray.
     A
It's poisoned and polluted
       E                           A ******RIFF A-0-2-4-|
By the people as it goes along its way.
CHORUS:
D                                                                  A
Don't go near the water children, See the fish all dead upon the shore.
D                                   A          E         A
Don't go near the water, Cause the water isn't water any-more.
Spoken:
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."
      A                                 E                                A
There was a time the air was clean and you could see forever cross the plains.
    A                               E                          A
The wind was sweet as honey And no one had ever heard of acid rain.
      D                                                          D
We're torturin' the earth And pourin' every kind of evil in the sea.
   A                         E                         A ******RIFF A-0-2-4-| 
We violated nature And our children have to pay the penalty.
CHORUS:
D                                                                  A
Don't go near the water children, See the fish all dead upon the shore.
D                                   A          E         A
Don't go near the water, Cause the water isn't water any-more.
CHORUS:
D                                                                  A
Don't go near the water children, See the fish all dead upon the shore.
D                                   A          E         A
Don't go near the water, Cause the water isn't water any-more.
