                Seven-Mile Island


        G  D
Take my body to Seven-Mile Island
       G    D          G       Em
Lay my head down where Indians sleep
          G     D
Take your shoes off and walk across water
          G  D            G           Em     D
It's been so long since I heard a man speak

Watch the spillways when the water starts risin'
Take your hat off when the sun goes down
Keep your eyes on that concrete tower
Maybe one day it'll crumble to the ground

Bm                       G
Mary's cryin' 'cause she can't hold water
        D                     A7
And her clothes don't fit her right
Bm                       G
She used to say that she wanted a daughter
        D                     A7
Now she only wants a Saturday night

There were days when that dusty cave was empty
Back before this city made a claim
On that hotel, wanders and strangers
Back before you could live off of your name

We all live in an Airstream trailer
'Bout three hundred yards up the lake
Call the doctor, Mary's goin' into labor
And you can't raise a baby on shake

So take my body to Seven-Mile Island
Lay some stones down on top of my grave
Tell my lady I just couldn't bear to see it
Tell my daughter I just couldn't be saved
