VERSE 

Em  Em  

C                       G               Em  Em 
 There was a well known water master man 
C           G  F 
 He was the king  
Em  Em Em  D    G   Em  Em 
 He could  do anything 
C                G               Em  Em 
 The St. Francis Dam Disaster man 
C                  G  F 
 Thought she was alright,  
Em Em  D       G 
 Until  around midnight  
Em            F               C 
 Because that water seeks her own 
     D               Em 
 She had a desire to flow  
      Em                            D D D  D2  Em 
She was looking for somewhere to go 

verse 2 

Em  Em 

C                       G                Em  Em  
 She was a slave to the great metropolis 
C                G   F 
 She was feeling choked 
Em   Em Em   D            G     Em  Em 
 She pushed the wall 'till it broke 
C                    G               Em  Em 
 when they heard the great apocalypse 
    C                  G  F 
 At power house number two 
Em   Em Em   D                 G 
 Well there was nothing they could do 
Em            F               C 
 Because that water seeks her own 
 D                                 Em 
 Five and one half hours she would flow 
        Em                        D   Em 
 She had fifty-three miles to go 

Em  Em Em   C   G 
Em  Em Em   C   G  F 
Em  Em  Em   D   G 

verse 3 

Em  Em Em 

C                  G              Em  Em  Em 
 A cascade down to Santa Clara way 
C                G  F 
 Near sixty feet high 
Em  Em Em  D    G   Em  Em  Em 
 Now she's a  mile wide  
C                     G             Em  Em  Em 
 It was clear she was going far away 
C                     G F 
 and whole towns were too 
Em Em Em  D         G 
 A  few  got lucky in Piru 
Em            F               C 
 Because that water seeks her own 
D                              Em 
 But four more hours she would flow 
        Em                            D   Em 
 She had twenty-nine miles more to go 


Em  Em Em   C   G 
Em  Em Em   C   G  F 
Em  Em  Em   D   G 


verse 4 

Em  Em Em  

C                   G                  Em  Em Em               
 She carried in her every kind of thing 
        C               G  F 
 House, tree, telegraph pole 
Em  Em Em  D       G    Em  Em Em 
 Some say  a thousand souls 
    C                         G            Em  Em  Em 
 At three A.M. she gave Santa Paula a ring 
         C                      G  F 
 She was still twenty-five feet high 
Em Em Em  D     G 
 Under  a  peaceful sky 
Em            F               C 
 Because that water seeks her own 
D                             Em 
 But two more hours she would flow 
       Em                       (harmonics) 
 She had nineteen more miles to go 


VERSE 5 - same chords 
It was a real bad night in little saticoy 
El Rio then Montalvo 
How many know one really knows 
Ventura beach was very scary, boy 
Humanity a pile 
She went her final mile 
Because that water seeks her own 
Into the sea the water flowed 
And now for forever she would go
