The flood

Capo 3rd

VERSE 1
G                             G
The fateful waking dream
                                                 C
Turns the sweetest stream you've seen
                                    G
Into a vengeful fighting force
                                  D
That breaks out and destroys

                                G
The lush green river banks
                                       C
Will break into advancing flanks
                                     G
And the whole perspiring army
                                      D
Will growl like a thousand drums
                        G
When the water comes

VERSE 2
It can't be talked down or contained
It won't be rationed with or restrained
An unleashed
And all it seeks is down

All will go from green to brown
As it hurtles through the town
Taking all before it
Until everything is gone
When the water comes

MIDDLE
And when the beast is spent
All the powers

The high mark on the wall
And the stench of

Then it will recede
Slowly to reveal
What the waters done
