                The River's Own
Chris Knight

Capo on 3

     C          F           C
The lines on my father's face
                      G         C
Ran deep as creek beds on our place
And the river ran right through his 
                       G       C
But I know at times it took its toll
When the crops would flood we lived on fish
    C            G         C
But never did my father wish
                      F          C
To leave the land his life flowed from
                G           C
The river and my dad were one

    Am                     F
And I'm one of the rivers' own
It's current down inside me is 
Am     C
         C           G     Am
And it's up to me to carry on
       F     G               C
'Cause I'm one of the river's own

As a kid I watched the river flow
Yeah, I admired the way it rocked and rolled
Dad was proud I was a river rat
But that's where our common ground ended at
'Cause I seen those city lights downstream
And they drew me in whan I was seventeen
I went everywhere that river runs
Yeah, me and that river we were one


Two years ago dad passed away
And I'll never forget that mournful day
Then a lawyer read me out his will
It said "Son, it's time for you to be still".
Then a week ago a government man
Tried to pay me off to flood our land
And I did ust what my dad would've done
'Cause me and that river we are one
