Gm Gm F/A

I remember being richer than a king

 

Bb Bb F/A

The minutes of the day were golden

I recall that when the joint passed 'round

 

Bb

My body felt a little colder

 

[10th fret]

Bb F/Eb Bb F/Eb

Now I'm like a sewer channel

[CHORUS I]

 

G

The sea refuses no river

 

Em D C G C/G G

And right now this river's banks are blown

 

C/G

The sea refuses no river, Whether stinking and rank

 

Gmaj7 Am

Or red from the tank, whether pure as a spring

 

C D

There's no damn thing stops this poem

 

Am F/C

The sea refuses no river

 

C(no 3rd)

And this river is homeward flowing

 

[repeat INTRO pattern]

 

I have seen a trace of strain, in others eyes not spoken.

I must admit that I enjoyed their pain, but this time it's me that's broken.

I demand for you and his, thus must be the time, when we decide what freedom

is,

turn water into wine.

 

G

For the sea refuses no river

Em D C G C/G

we're polluted now, but in our hearts still clean,

C/G

The sea refuses no river

C/G Gmaj7

We tried not to age, but time had its rage,

Am C D

We're washed over stones, from babes into clones of the mean,

Am F/C

The sea refuses no river,

C5 C6

Won't deny this sulphorous stream.

Am G C G

There was a fool in a dressing robe, riding out the twilight hour,

Am G C

Lonely and cold in an empty home, trying to assess his power,

C G/F C G/F C G/F C G/F

But now he's like a stream in flood, swollen by the storm.
