Tom :Em

        Em                     A    F C
So you cut all the tall trees down
     G                        D   B7
You poisoned the sky and the sea
        Em                          A     F C
You've taken what's good from the ground
         G                        D   B7
But you left precious little for me



        Em                     A    F C
You remember the flood and the fall
       G                      D    B7
We remember the light on the hill
        Em                    A   F C
There should be enough for us all
         G                     D    G D
But the dollar is driving us still



Chorus:
                Am
The river runs red, black rain falls
            G
Dust in my hand
            F               G
River runs red, black rain falls
                 D
  On my bleeding land



       Em                       A    F C
So we came and conquered and found
 G                     D    B7
Riches of commons and kings
       Em                         A    F C
Who strangled and wrestled the ground
          G                  D    B7
But they never put back anything
          Em                     A    F C
Now I'm trapped like a dog in a cage
     G                     D    B7
Where ever the truth is pursued
    Em                       A  F C
It must be the curse of the age
        G                 D     G D
What's taken is never renewed



The last Chorus goes:
               Am
The river runs red, black rain falls
            G
Dust in my hand
            F               G
River runs red, black rain falls
                 F  C  G  D  
  On my bleeding land

F C G D   F C G D  F C G D   F C G D
land....  land     land....   land
