From Paradise - Archie Roach


G  Em  G  Em

G                   Em
She was born in the river land.
G                  D                C
Born of her mother into her mothers hands.
G                   C
She was free as the river was wild.
G                        D                C
And she was so innocent, such a beautiful child.

G                            Em
Then they took her away from Paradise.
C                        G             D
Ahh where everything was beautiful and very nice.
G                           Em
They took her away from her mothers tongue.
     C                    G              D                 G
Then slapped her around a little bit, to teach her another one.

G                    Em
In and out of ins-ti-tutions.
G                                   D                    C
What could they do with this child, where was the neat solution.
                             G                    Em
There was nothing they could do, so they gave her to the streets.
        G                          D                    C
And she joined all the rest of the hungry and the tired feet.

G                            Em
Then they took her away from Paradise.
C                        G             D
Ahh where everything was beautiful and very nice.
G                           Em
They took her away from her mothers tongue.
     C                    G              D                 G
Then slapped her around a little bit, to teach her another one.

        C                  G             D    D7
And the Pondees they don't swim here any more.

    G              Em
She met a boy, who kind of knew.
G                  D            C
Some of the things that she was going through.
           G               C
But he was confused, so he ran away.
    G                   D             C
She found him again and here she is today, here in my heart.

G                            Em
Then they took her away from Paradise.
C                        G             D
Ahh where everything was beautiful and very nice.
G                           Em
They took her away from her mothers tongue.
     C                    G              D                 G
Then slapped her around a little bit, to teach her another one.

G                  Em         G        Em
Took her away from Paradise, away from Paradise.
G         Em
Ooh, from Paradise.
G         Em
Ooh, from Paradise.
