G G Am Am                G Am Am                   G G Am Am 
           I walked down         that boulder road, 
                            C            G            F F Am 
Through a child's eye saw places where I used to go. 
                        G Am Am                      G G Am Am 
Where I crawled barefoot         with a fishing pole 
                   C               G        F F G 
to the rock that overlooked that steelhead hole 
             F F G G              D        Am    G G Am Am 
but it's true--     silver river turning blue. 
  
  

G G Am Am                    G Am Am                   G G Am Am 
          It was a small town        in a smaller world. 
                       C                G            F F Am 
Just a black dot on an old map with its edges curled. 
                                  G Am Am                      G G Am Am 
Where they built their industries        on the edge of town-- 
           C            G           F F G 
Leaching chemicals from underground 
             F F G G                   D        Am 
now it's true--     that silver river turning blue. 
  
  

 G                F               C                   G    F F G 
Just got a late reaction.  Face reality and stare it down. 
                Bb     F                C          D     E 
Sometimes it's harder hanging on.  Much easier to look around. 

But I need that job. 
  
  

G G Am Am 

G G Am Am                         G Am Am                               G G 
Am Am 
         Well, this place no city:        we're just small players here. 
                      C               G             F F Am 
Like a million other heroes drinking poor man's beer. 
                     G Am Am                         G G Am Am 
We know what's right.        We're just living it wrong. 
                    C               G          F F G 
But there's no easy answer in the green man's song. 
                F F G G                  D          Am 
What do you do?         When your river's turning Blue.
