CAPO 1

The (D)lines on my (G)father''s (D)face
Ran deep as creek beds (A)on our (D)place
And the river ran right (G)through his (D)soul
But I know at times it (A)tooks its (D)toll
When the (G)crops would flood we lived on fish
But (D)never did my (A)father (D)wish
To leave the land his (G)life flowed (D)from
The river and my (A)dad were (D)one

And (Bm)I''m one of the river''s (G)own
It''s (A)current down inside me is (Bm)strong(G)
And it''s (D)up to me to (A)carry (Bm)on
''Cause (G)I''m (A)one of the river''s (D)own

As a kid I watched the (G)river (D)flow
Yeah, I admired the way it (A)rocked and (D)rolled
Dad was proud I was a (G)river (D)rat
But that''s where our common ground (A)ended (D)at
''Cause I (G) seen those city lights downstream
And they (D)drew me in when I was (A)seven(D)teen
I went everywhere that (G)river (D)runs
Yeah, me and that river (A)we were (D)one

And (Bm)I''m one of the river''s (G)own
It''s (A)current down inside me is (Bm)strong(G)
And it''s (D)up to me to (A)carry (Bm)on
''Cause (G)I''m (A)one of the river''s (D)own

Two years ago dad (G)passed (D)away
And I''ll never forget that (A)mournful (D)day
Then a lawyer read me (G)out his (D)will
It said son, it''s time for (A)you to be (D)still
Then a (G)week ago a government man
Tried to (D)pay me off to (A)flood our (D)land
And I did just what my (G)dad would''ve (D)done
''Cause me and that river (A)we are (D)one

And (Bm)I''m one of the river''s (G)own
It''s (A)current down inside me is (Bm)strong(G)
And it''s (D)up to me to (A)carry (Bm)on
''Cause (G)I''m (A)one of the river''s (D)own
