Riverboat

Riverboat

     D                       A                 D
cho: I aint gonna step down off of that river boat
     G                      d                 a
     I aint gonna step down off of that river boat
     D     a              d           d     a
     CAuse if i step down off of that river boat
     D                  a            d
     I don't think that i'm going to float

D
Cause there's mud just below that sparking water
D                                          g
Yes, there's mud just below that sparking water
G                          a
And it's soft and deep and warm
G                                 d
Settled 'neath the river once in a storm
D         a                   d
Mud just below that sparkling water

Once I had a daughter strong and fine
Grew up and said she didn't want to be mine
I said I understood and felt the same
New she runs a school for girls, each one as strong as a redwood burl
They're growin' up stronger than the world into which they came

When oh when will i ever learn, its not just the fire that makes me burn
It's not just the ice that cools my flaming skin
Buts if I give up it will cook me good and that ain't the road to sisterhood
Where I'm going ain't the same as where I been
