Intro C-C-C-C-Am

C               C          C
Take my body to Seven-Mile Island.

C                      C       Am
Lay my head down where Indians sleep.

C                       C               C
Take your shoes off and walk across the water.

C                      C           Am
It's been so long so I heard a man speak.

C                            C            C
Watch the spillways when the water starts rising.
C                          C        Am
Take your hat off when the sun goes down.
C                      C        C
Keep your eyes on that concrete tower.
C                     C              Am
Maybe one day it will crumble to the ground.

Em                       C
Mary's crying 'cause she can't hold water
        C                     D
and her clothes don't fit her right.

Em                       C
She used to say that she wanted a daughter,
        C                     D
now she only wants a Saturday night.

C                         C              C
There were days when that dusty cave was empty,
C                C           Am
back before this city made a claim
        C         C             C
on that hotel for wanderers and strangers,
       C              C                Am
back before you could live off of your name.

Em                C
We all live in an Airstream trailer
      C                          D
about three-hundred yards up the lake.
Em                      C
Call the doctor, Mary's going into labor
        C                     D
and you can't raise a baby on shake.

           C       C          C
So take my body to Seven-Mile Island
C                       C         Am
Lay some stones down on top of my grave.
        C           C                C        
Tell my lady I just couldn't bear to see her
        C               C           Am
Tell my daughter I just couldn't be saved.
