			       (A suspended something) (same thing with G)
[ Tab from: ]
    5   3	
 I     		I			           II		II    
Morning comes, she follows the path to the river shore.
 I		I				      II	 II
Like the sun, her song is the latch on the morning's door.
 I	     C(I)
See the sun sparkle in the reeds;
 I	      C(I)	 	  Bmin 7  D(I)
Silver beads fasten to the seeds.
 D(I)  		                    D(I)		      A(I)	 A(I)
She comes from the town where she's known as the woodcutter's daughter,
 A 7				  A7       		    D(I)        D(I)
She's brown as the bank where she kneels down to gather her water,
 D(I)			   D(I)                    Bmin 7  
She bears it away with the love that the river has taught her.
 I  	      I   	   C(I)	  	  III
Let it flow, let it flow, wide and clean.
 I		        I   				  II
'Round and 'round, the cut of the plough and the furrowed field
 I		      I				    II
Seasons 'round, the bushels of corn and the barley meal
 I	       C(I)
Broken ground, open and beckoning
 I	       C(I)		      Bmin 7   D(I)
To the stream, black dirt live again!
 D(I)			      D(I)			 A(I)	  A(I)
The ploughman is broad as the back of the land that he's sowing
 A 7		 	  A 7			   D(I)	    D(I)	
As he dances the circular track of his plough ever knowing
 D(I)				   D(I)				   Bmin 7
That the work of his days measures more than just the planting and growing.
 I	     I   	  II    	III	
Let it grow, let it grow, let me heal.

III   	       B            D(II)  A(II) Emin
What shall we say, shall we call it by a name?
C(II)	             G(I)   Bmin
As well to count the angels dancing on a pin.
III   B	            D(II)    A(II)    Emin
Water bright as the sky from which it came
D(II)			              A(II)
Its name is on the earth and takes it in
   G(I)		      IV	       Emin	D(II)
It will not speak but stand inside the rain.
C(II)  G(I)   Bmin    Emin
Listen to the thunder shout
I     I	    C(I)

	-INSTRUMENTAL (follows chords of first verse once through)
I	       I	                	 II		II
So it goes, we make what we make since the world began,
I		      I			     II		
Nothing more than the love of woman, and the work of man.
I		C(I)
Seasons 'round, creatures great and small,
I	     C(II)		   Bmin 7   D(I)
Up and down, as they rise and fall
D(I)		C(III)    G(II)    D(III)(play twice as long as D(I),
Rise and fall.				then continue the pattern of 
					the last three chords for a
					while until)...

I  I  I  II (repeat three measures of I, one measure II another while
until) ...

V   VI   VII, V   VI   VII, V   VI   VII   VII (jam on this for awhile, then)

VIII    A(II)    IX    G(II)  (repeat 4X)



The final jam is just like the first, only it starts from the I  I  I  II 
part, ending with a slow fade on the III chord.
