Verse 1 chords:
D6                      G
High water carried her down stream
D6                      G
She watched the water's living things
D6                       G
She thought, it's not a mound with six planks of wood
The cardinal points to hold you up
Or a mountain where a shed self could

Verse 2 chords: (repeat x2)
D6                           G
Feed the roots and honor the tongues of the animals
D6                      G
Drift into the moss and bloat where the peat bog pulls

Interlude: play intro tab x3 (or just play chords)

Verse 3: (use verse 1 chords)
Rolled like a felled tree with arms as useless as such
Death's panic came, a calmness stayed, you couldn't do much
Just watch the water chip away at the bank eroding
Cut and crumbling through the spate

Verse 4 chords:
D6                     G
It took a father, it covered his daughter
         D6          G
Took her down, down, down
With the glass bottles, books, a tire
          G                  D6
Collected hair tufts in the weeds
                                             G       D
Snagged and wrapped in the peats dammed and trapped

Chorus Chords: (repeat x3)
You said, is this the ceremony?
I don't know, well I don't mind

The way we all fall in and roll down
Pushed through the veins and trafficked byes
And when your ears sit underhead is half submerged down below
Pooling all accounts of peace while passed beneath the canopy glow
    G            D           G
canopy glow, canopy glow, canopy glow
