VERSE 1

      D               G
Let's put our heads together
    Em          G
and start a new country up.
    D                 G
Our father's father's father tried,
 Em                 G
erased the parts he didn't like.
      D                  G
Let's try to fill it in,
Em              G
bank the quarry river, swim.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em                   G
We knee-skinned that river red.

BRIDGE

Em               Bm
This is where we walked,
Em               Bm
this is where we swam.
Em                  Bm
Take a picture here,
Em               D
take a souvenir.

VERSE 2

     D                   G
This land is the land of ours,
     Em             G
this river runs red over it.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em                   G
we knee-skinned that river red.
       D               G
And we gathered up our friends,
Em              G
bank the quarry river, swim.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em             G
underneath the river bed.

BRIDGE

Em               Bm
This is where we walked,
Em               Bm
this is where we swam.
Em                  Bm
Take a picture here,
Em               D
take a souvenir.

CHORUS

D   Em  G Bm  A      G
    Cuyahoga.
D   Em  G Bm     A      G
    Cuyahoga, is gone.

VERSE 3

      D             G
Let's put our heads together,
Em          G
start a new country up.
D              G
Underneath the river bed
   Em                     G
we burned the river down.

BRIDGE

Em                 Bm
This is where they walked, swam,
Em                 Bm
hunted, danced and sang.
Em                   Bm
Take a picture here,
Em               D
take a souvenir.

CHORUS

D   Em  G Bm  A      G
    Cuyahoga.
D   Em  G Bm     A      G
    Cuyahoga, is gone.

BREAK

  Bm                A
Rewrite the book and rule the pages,
G
saving face, secured in faith.
Bm             A
Bury, burn the waste
G
Behind you.

   D          G          Em          G

     D                   G
This land is the land of ours,

this river runs red over it.
D               G
We are not your allies,
Em         G
we can not defend.

BRIDGE

Em                 Bm
This is where they walked,
Em                 Bm
this is where they swam.
Em                  Bm
Take a picture here,
Em               D
take a souvenir.
