MAID OF THE RIVER / ZEITGEIST

          Bm
She's the maid of the river
   D
So beautiful plain
   A
As fresh as the country
     Bm
That gave her her name

As crips as the snow
       D
And as swift as the rain
    A
She shone like the sun
       Bm
Before all of our games

She shone like a jewel
        D
But her price was not gold
    A
She cired more than most
         Bm
When her story was told

But her people were evil
         D
Left her baron and cold
        A
And her heart went to market
          Bm
Where her body was sold


          Bm                 D
I said : 'Hey, hey won't you take me away
       A
Cos I can't see the point
       Bm
In the dawn of the day
                      D
So many killers gonna take you away
        A                         Bm
They'll leave nothing left except hatred'


          F#
She's the goddess of love
    Bm
The goddess in green
    F#
The goddess of all
     Bm
That I've ever seen
    F#
The goddess of hope
    Bm
The goddess in brown
    F#
The goddess of all

That you've burned to the ground



There's all kind of hatred

Flows out of man's hands

There's the hatred that strangles

The throat of a man

But the worst of all hatred

Is that which is planned

Against what we have

In this goddess of land
