CUYAHOGA (Version 1)



There are two ways to play the intro riff.  The more accurate way is to tune
your low E string down to D.  If you want to be able to play normal chord
shapes, though, this way is better:

G(3) --2------2----|
D(4) 0-----0-----0-|
              A(5) |--5-----5-5-----|--2-------2-----|--5-5---5-5-----|
              E(6) |3-----3-----3---|0-----0-------0-|3-----3-----3---|

      D                 G         Em          G    (repeat throughout verse)
Let's put our heads together and start a new country up
Our father's father's father tried, erased the parts he didn't like
Let's try to fill it in, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red

Em               Bm      Em               F#m
This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Em               Bm  Em           D
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

      D                 G         Em          G    (repeat throughout verse)
This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red
And we gathered up our friends, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, underneath the river bed

(see below...)
This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

Cuyahoga           D - Em -/G - Bm -/D D D D/ Asus4 A A2 A
Cuyahoga, gone     D - Em -/G - Bm -/D - Em -/G - - -

      D                 G         Em          G    (repeat throughout verse)
Let's put our heads together, start a new country up,
Underneath the river bed we burned the river down.
This is where they walked, swam, hunted, danced and sang,
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, gone

Bm              F#m               G
Rewrite the book and rule the pages, saving face, secured in faith
Bm               F#m    G
Bury, burn the waste behind you

(intro riff)

      D                 G         Em          G    (repeat throughout verse)
This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We are not your allies, we can not defend
This is where they walked, this is where they swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

Cuyahoga           D - Em -/G - Bm -/D D D D/ Asus4 A A2 A
Cuyahoga, gone     D - Em -/G - Bm -/D - Em -/G - - -
Cuyahoga           D - Em -/G - Bm -/D D D D/ Asus4 A A2 A
Cuyahoga, gone     D - Em -/G - Bm -/D - Em -/G - - -


This is what to do for the "this is where we walked..." part:

     Em               Bm                Em               F#m
e(1) --just--jam-----|2-----2----------|--Em-again...---|2-----2----------|
B(2) ------on--------|-----------3-----|----------------|-----------2-----|
G(3) --------Em------|-------------4---|----------------|-------------2---|

Lyrics:

Let's put our heads together and start a new country up
Our father's father's father tried, erased the parts he didn't like
Let's try to fill it in, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red

This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We knee-skinned it you and me, we knee-skinned that river red
And we gathered up our friends, bank the quarry river, swim
We knee-skinned it you and me, underneath the river bed

This is where we walked, this is where we swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, gone

Let's put our heads together, start a new country up,
Underneath the river bed we burned the river down.
This is where they walked, swam, hunted, danced and sang,
Take a picture here, take a souvenir
Cuyahoga, gone

Rewrite the book and rule the pages, saving face, secured in faith
Bury, burn the waste behind you

This land is the land of ours, this river runs red over it
We are not your allies, we can not defend
This is where they walked, this is where they swam
Take a picture here, take a souvenir

Cuyahoga, gone
Cuyahoga, gone
