Intro 		[G]	h[C] h[C] h[C]	[G] 

[G] Late on a Friday my husband went up to the [C]  mountains with three [G]  friends 
They took provisions and bottles of bourbon to [C] last them all through the [G] weekend 
[Em] One hundred [G] miles they drove [Em] just to fish in a [C] stream 
[G] There's so much [C] water [D] so close to [G] home h[C] [G] 

[G] When they arrived it was cold and dark, they [C]  set up they're camp [G] quickly 
Warmed up with whisky they walked to the river where the [C] water flowed past [G] darkly 
In the [Em] moonlight they saw the [G] body, of a [Em] girl floating face [C] down 
[G] There's so much [C] water [D] so close to [G] home h[C] [G] h[C]
 
[Chorus1]
[Bass run into the chorus A B C F]
When he [C] holds me now I'm [G] pretending
I feel [C] like I'm frozen [D] inside 
And [C] behind my [G] eyes, my [C] daily [G]  disguise 
[C] Everything's [D] turning to [G] white h[C] h[C] h[C] [Bass run into the chorus A B C F] [G] 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/paul_kelly/everythings_turning_to_white_crd.html ]
[G] It was too hard to tell how long she's been dead the [C] river was that close to [G] freezing 
But one things for sure, the girl hadn't died very [C] well to judge from the [G] bruising 
They [Em] stood there above her all [G] thinking, the [Em] same thoughts at the same [C] time 
There's [G] so much [C] water [D] so close to [G] home h[C] [G] h[C] [G]
 
[spoken]
[G] So here's what they did, they carried her downstream from their fishing, 
between [C] two smooth rocks they gently [G] wedged her 
After all it was late, they had come a long way, and the [C] girl would keep, she was going [G] nowhere 
[Em] They stayed up there [G] fishing for two days
They [Em] reported it on Sunday when they came back [C] down 
[sung] [G] There's so much [C] water [D] so close to [G] home h[C] [G] h[C] [G] 

[Chorus2]
When he [C] holds me now I'm [G] pretending 
Nothing [C] is working [D] inside 
And [C] behind my [G] eyes, my [C] daily [G]  disguise 
[C] Everything's [D] turning to [G] white h[C] h[C] h[C] [bass note run ABCF] [G]
 
[G] The newspapers said the girl had been strangled to [C] death, and also [G] molested 
On the day of the funeral, the radio reported that a young [C] man had been [G] arrested 
[Em] I went to the service a [G] stranger, [Em] I drove past the lake out of [C] town 
[G] There's so much [C] water [D] so close to [G] home h[C] [G] 
 
[Repeat Chorus1]
