[VERSE]

Em  Em(+F#) 

C                       G               Em  Em (+F#)
 There was a well known water master man
C           G  F
 He was the king 
Em  Em(+G) Em  D    G   Em  Em(+F#)
 He could  do anything
C                G               Em  Em (+F#)
 The St. Francis Dam Disaster man
C                  G  F
 Thought she was alright, 
Em Em(+G)  D       G
 Until  around midnight 
Em            F               C
 Because that water seeks her own
     D               Em
 She had a desire to flow 
      Em                            D D D  D2  Em
She was looking for somewhere to go

[VERSE 2]

Em  Em(+F#)

C                       G                Em  Em (+F#) 
 She was a slave to the great metropolis
C                G   F
 She was feeling choked
Em   Em(+G) Em   D            G     Em  Em(+F#)
 She pushed the wall 'till it broke
C                    G               Em  Em(+F#)
 when they heard the great apocalypse
    C                  G  F
 At power house number two
Em   Em(+G) Em   D                 G
 Well there was nothing they could do
Em            F               C
 Because that water seeks her own
 D                                 Em
 Five and one half hours she would flow
        Em                        D   Em
 She had fifty-three miles to go

Em  Em(+F#) Em   C   G
Em  Em(+F#) Em   C   G  F
Em  Em(+G)  Em   D   G

[VERSE 3]

Em  Em(+F#) Em

C                  G              Em  Em(+F#)  Em
 A cascade down to Santa Clara way
C                G  F
 Near sixty feet high
Em  Em(+G) Em  D    G   Em  Em(+F#)  Em
 Now she's a  mile wide 
C                     G             Em  Em(+F#)  Em
 It was clear she was going far away
C                     G F
 and whole towns were too
Em Em(+G) Em  D         G
 A  few  got lucky in Piru
Em            F               C
 Because that water seeks her own
D                              Em
 But four more hours she would flow
        Em                            D   Em
 She had twenty-nine miles more to go


Em  Em(+F#) Em   C   G
Em  Em(+F#) Em   C   G  F
Em  Em(+G)  Em   D   G


[VERSE 4]

Em  Em(+F#) Em 

C                   G                  Em  Em(+F#) Em              
 She carried in her every kind of thing
        C               G  F
 House, tree, telegraph pole
Em  Em(+G) Em  D       G    Em  Em(+F#) Em
 Some say  a thousand souls
    C                         G            Em  Em(+F#)  Em
 At three A.M. she gave Santa Paula a ring
         C                      G  F
 She was still twenty-five feet high
Em Em(+G) Em  D     G
 Under  a  peaceful sky
Em            F               C
 Because that water seeks her own
D                             Em
 But two more hours she would flow
       Em                       (harmonics)
 She had nineteen more miles to go


[VERSE 5] - same chords
It was a real bad night in little saticoy
El Rio then Montalvo
How many know one really knows
Ventura beach was very scary, boy
Humanity a pile
She went her final mile
Because that water seeks her own
Into the sea the water flowed
And now for forever she would go
