Misery's The River Of The World

	  		Intro: N.C(Fm)  
    Fm                                    Cm  
The higher that the monkey can climb, the more he shows his tail  
     Fm                                    Cm  
Call no man happy till he dies, there's no milk at the bottom of the pail  
Dm  
God builds a church, the devil builds a chapel   

like the thistles that are growing on the trunk of a tree  

All the good in the world you can put inside a thimble   

And still have room for you and me  
           Fm  
If there's one thing you can say about mankind   
        Dm  
There's nothing kind about man  
        Fm  
You can drive out nature with a pitch fork  
       Cm  
But it always comes roaring back again  
Fm  
Misery's the river of the world   
                                  
Misery's the river of the world  

Misery's the river of the world

    Fm                                    Cm  
The higher that the monkey can climb, the more he shows his tail  
     Fm                                    Cm   
Call no man happy till he dies, there's no milk at the bottom of the pail  
    Dm  
God tempers all the ruins for the new shorn lands  
    Am  
The devil knows the Bible like the back of his hand  
        Fm  
All the good in the world you can put inside a thimble   
    Cm                  C7

    Fm                                   Cm  
For want of a bird the sky was lost, for want of a nail the shoe  
was lost  
    Fm                                 Cm              C7  
For want of a life a life was lost for want of a toy a child was lost  
    Fm  
And misery's the river of the world

Misery's the river of the world   
          Fm
