Uke Tab : River Runs Red
"River Runs Red" - Midnight Oil

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

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


B7         Am
River runs red
Am    
Black rain falls
Am         G
Dust in my hand
G          F 
River runs red
           G
Black rain falls
G              D
On my bleeding land


Em                           G     D  A
So we came and conquered and found
   G                  D     B7
Riches of commons and kings
Em                             G      D  A
Who strangled and wrestled the ground
   G                       D     B7
But they never put back anything

Em                             G    D  A
Now I'm trapped like a dog in a cage
   G                   D      B7
Wherever the truth is pursued
Em                         G   D  A
It must be the curse of the age
       G                D     B7
What's taken is never renewed

River runs red  
Black rain falls
Dust in my hand
River runs red
Black rain falls
On my bleeding land
