INTRO: Dm  Am  G  F  Am

N.C.   C
It was just about a year ago
  F              C      G
I woke up from a dream
                         C
That filled my soul with wonder

Where the heavens rained down water
       F                    C        G
And it filled the lakes and streams
                           C
And the world was shook by thunder


        Dm            Am
And the waters came together
          G               C    F
'Til they formed a mighty sea
                      Am     F  Am
And all the land went under


     C
So I started making plans
       F                   C      G
And my sons all felled the trees
                         C
And the wood they set to planing

While the women built the stockpile
      F                C      G
Of provision grain and seeds
                       C
And relationships were straining


        Dm                   Am
All the townfolk think we're crazy
        G                C       
When we pass them on the street
     F                  Am  
They look down at their feet


BRIDGE:
           Dm             Am
It's three hundred cubits long 
         G          F
Like the belly of a bird
Dm                   Am
Three decks high and strong enough
   F         G
To ride upon the surge


INSTRUMENTAL: C    F C G  C    F C G  C  Dm Am G C F  Am  F  Am


   C
So gather up the grandchildren
    F               C     G
And all the ones we love
                    C
And the animals for breeding

Don't forget the donkeys
        F              C      
And the ravens and the doves
G                C
Someday we might need them


         Dm             Am
There is nothing we can do now
        G               C       
For the ones who will remain
        F                   Am    F  Am
And the sky that looks like rain
        F             Am       Dm  Am  G  F  Am
And the sky looks like rain
