Intro: D Bm D Bm 

D                         A                 D 
Why plant a seed deep in the ground 
D     G     D 
Why why why 
D                               A          D  
Why put a stone on a grave in town 
D     G     D 
Why why why 

D                       G    D 
Tell me, tell me, tell me 
                         A 
Tell me why it's so 
D                       G    D 
Tell me, tell me, tell me 
                       A 
Tell me so I'll know 

D                                      A                        D 
Why does a wedding ring have the hardest stone 
D     G     D 
Why why why 
D                                A          D 
Why does a little dog bury its bone 
D     G     D 
Why why why 

       Em                    A  
So the river will not drown it 
           D                   Bm 
So the highway won't take it 
          Em                   A  
And the dust will not cover it 
           D                  Bm 
And the sun will not blind it 
             Em              A         D 
And the wind won't blow it away 


Why put a song bird in a cage 
Why write i love you on every page 

Tell me why it's so 
Tell me, tell me, tell me 
Tell me so I'll know 

Why does a bird build its nest so high 
Why hold a baby when a baby cries 

So the river will not drown it 
So the highway won't take it 
And the dust will not cover it 
And the sun will not blind it 
And the wind won't blow it away 

So the river will not drown it 
So the highway won't take it 
And the dust will not cover it 
And the sun will not blind it 
And the wind won't blow it away
