Johnny Cash - Dont Go Near The Water chords

Chords:
Transpose
AFrom the fountains in the mountains
E Acomes the water running cool and clear and blue.
AAnd it comes down from the hills
E Aand it goes down to the towns and passes through.
DWhen it gets down to the cities,
Athen the water turns into a dirty gray.
AIt's poisoned and polluted
E Aby the people as it goes along its way.
DDon't go near the water children,
Asee the fish all dead upon the shore.
DDon't go near the water,
A E Acause the water isn't water any-more.
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."
AThere was a time the air was clean
E Aand you could see forever cross the plains.
AThe wind was sweet as honey
E Aand no one had ever heard of acid rain.
DWe're torturin' the earth
Aand pourin' every kind of evil in the sea.
AWe violated nature
E Aand our children have to pay the penal-ty.
DDon't go near the water children,
Asee the fish all dead upon the shore.
DDon't go near the water,
A E Acause the water isn't water any-more.
DDon't go near the water children,
Asee the fish all dead upon the shore.
DDon't go near the water,
A E Acause the water isn't water any-more.
