{4/4}
| D        Dsus4 | D      Dsus4  |
  Throwing stones  into the river
                                             {2/4}
| D        Dsus4  | D         E   | (echo E) | (echo E) | 
  Watching ripples  splashing over

{4/4}
| D          Dsus4     | D          Dsus4  |
 Hitting the bank where  horses are grazing
                                              {2/4}
| D         Dsus4  | D     E       | (echo E) | (Drum fill) |  
 Reflection shatter  quite amazing
 
{4/4}
| C         (/b)    (/a) | C(/g) |                       
 But soon I quietly ask, 
| E                 | Esus2 | E |
 Is this the way for  me
| C         (/b)    (/a) | C(/g) |                          
 I twist my vacuum flask, 
| E               | Esus2 | E | Esus2 | Asus4 | A |     
 and have a cup of  tea

| D   Dsus4  | D      Dsus4     |
 Goin' fishin'  never  catch none
                                          {2/4}
| D    Dsus4 | D          E    | (echo E) | (echo E) | 
 If I did,     I'd surely lance

{4/4}
| D           Dsus4 | D            Dsus4   |
 The spear is tossed, the first is quiggley
                                                      {2/4}
| D              Dsus4     | D       E     | (echo E) | (Drum fill) |
 The fish tackle scares me,  and the snails

{4/4}
| C         (/b)    (/a)      | C(/g) |  
 The pleasure cruiser's speed
| E             | Esus2   | E |
 Laden with wind  cheaters
| C          (/b)     (/a) | C(/g) |  
 The hooters blow and seize
| E                  | Esus2    | E | Esus2 | Asus4 | A | A |
 My mind from natures  creatures

| Bb             | F                       | F | F |        
 Blowing the fish, emptying in my warm hand
| Bb           | F           | F | F |
 I want fishin'  everlasting
| Bb                 | F                             | F | F |
 You can take my son,  If you drown your own daughter
| Bb           | F   | Fsus4 | Fsus4 | Asus4 | Asus4 | A |
 Your a man and  I'm   free

| D      Dsus4  | D        Dsus4  |
 Throw a stick    into the surface
                                              {2/4}
| D       Dsus4 | D          E    | (echo E) | (echo E) | 
 watch it bob,    it cruises pass

{4/4}
| D        Dsus4  | D      Dsus4  |
 The river flows    gently eroding
                                                 {2/4}
| D          Dsus4 | D          E    | (echo E) | (echo E) | 
 Moves cross land,   but not to fast
