Trouble With The Water Key of G / 125 bpm / Time 4:35

There’s trouble with the water when will they testify
Trouble with the water how many people lied
When they cover up the story of how many children died
Oh the Trouble with the water
Now there ain’t no place to hide

Just a small town by the river
What can a poor mama do
They said people don’t’ you worry
But they aint talking true
Now everybody’s tryin to help but what can really be done
Oh the trouble with the water’s like a lead loaded gun

Just trying to save a dollar
Well it ain’t so black and white
Well they knew about the trouble
But they lied and it ain’t right
When poison runs through neighborhoods
Where only children do run.
Well the trouble with the water
What has Mr. Synder done

Politicians love their Jesus
But they love their money more
They will justify their actions,
Take advantage of the poor
Well Jesus would be horrified by what some wealthy people do
And the trouble with the water,
Well it really ain’t nothing new

Trouble with the water yeah
