lyrics

LOOK AT THE WATER Key of A
© Bob Wright
A D
Look at the water brother
A D
Look at the water brother
A D E A
We should have realized that something was wrong
A D
Look at the color of it
A D
Look at the color brother
A D E A
We should have realized that something was wrong

(Chorus)
A E A
Now we’re gonna have to shut it all down boys
E A
We’re gonna have to shut it all down
D
From the Hudson to the Raritan
A E
Ain’t no one taking care of it
D A
We’re gonna have to shut it all down.

Can’t find no stripers (OH NO)
Can’t find no shad (OH NO)
I hate to say it boys but things have gone bad
Can’t eat no oysters (OH NO)
Can’t eat no clams (OH NO)
I hate to say it boys but we’re in a jam

(Chorus)

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK- (VERSE)

Call out the lawyers (OH NO)
Call out the judge (OH NO)
We got to tell them that the harbors all sludge
Go tell the clamming man ( NOOOO)
Go tell the oysterman (NOOOO)
We got to tell them that their jobs are all done

(Chorus)
