  Tiger Lillies - Drowning Girl (Bertolt Brecht)


Gm                               Cm
Once she had drowned and started her slow descent
Cm                                         Gm
Down the streams to where the great rivers broaden
Gm                     Cm
Oh, the open sky chant most magnificent
Cm                                Gm
As if it was acting as her body's guardian

Cm                         D
Wreck and duck weed slowly increased her weight
Cm                 D
By clasping her in their slimy grip
Cm                                  D
Through her limbs, the cold blooded fishes played
Cm                                       D
Creatures and plant life kept on, thus obstructing her last trip

Gm                                 Cm
And the sky that same evening grew dark as smoke
Cm                                                        Gm
And its stars through the night kept the brightness still soaring
Gm                             Cm
But it quickly grew clear when dawn now broke
Cm                              Gm
To see that she had one further morning

Cm                               D
Once her pallid trunk had rotted beyond repair
Cm                                D
It happened quite slowly that she slipped from God's thoughts
Cm                                                D
First with her face, then her hands, right at the last with her hair
Cm                          D                    Gm
Leaving those corpse-choked rivers just one more corpse
