"Women Across The River" (Words and music by David Olney)


(D)The women across the river 

Carry (G)water from the well at the break of (D)day

And they (D)talk to one another 

(G)God only knows what they might (D)say

You might (G)get an education after years of dedication

You might finally get a glimpse of what is right

And what is (D)wrong

The women across the river (A)well, they knew that all (D)along

(D)Women across the river

Work with (G)tools that are ancient and hand-(D)made

They (D)plough the fields in perfect rows

And (G)then, they rest beneath the (D)shade

Now we (G)have learned to build out of concrete out of steel

And our buildings last a thousand years 

But then even they are bound to (D)fall

But the women across the river, (A)never learned to build a (D)wall

(D)The women across the river

Are as (G)gentle as the dew upon the (D)ground

I (D)love to hear them laughing in the (G)rain 

When it makes the perfect (D)sound

Now a (G)soldier with a gun and a battle to be won

Might kill you with a bullet and you'd never even know the reason (D)why

But the women across the river, (A)they can kill you with their (D)eyes

The women across the river, (A)they can kill you with their (D)eyes
