[Verse 1]
Dm   C      F      
Oh, oh deep water
Dm             C        F
Black and cold like the night 
  Bb                   C          F             Bb
I stand with arms wide open, I've run a twisted line 
      Bb              C           F
I'm a stranger in the eyes of the Maker 

[Verse 2]
  Dm                    C         F
I could not see for the fog in my eyes 
  Dm                     C          F
I could not feel for the fear in my life
          Bb                C            F                Bb
And from across the great divide, in the distance I saw a light 
        Bb            C              F                                  
Jean Baptiste walking to me with the Maker 

[Verse 3]
   Dm      C        F      
My body is bent and broken
   Dm       C         F
By long and dangerous sleep 
        Bb                 C            F            Bb
I can't work the fields of Abraham, and turn my head away 
          Bb              C            F
I'm not a stranger in the hands of the Maker

[Verse 4] 
        Dm             C                 F
Brother John, have you seen the homeless daughters
Dm                  C      F
Standing there with broken wings
       Bb               C       F                  Bb
I have seen the flaming swords, there over east of Eden 
Bb             C           F
Burning in the eyes of the Maker 
Bb             C           F
Burning in the eyes of the Maker 
Bb             C           F
Burning in the eyes of the Maker

Oh, river rise from your sleep
