Chords and lyrics for Miserys The River Of The World by Tom Waits

 
The  
Fm 
higher that the monkey can climb, the
Cm 
more he shows his tail
 
Call  
Fm 
no man happy till he dies, there’s no
Cm 
milk at the bottom of the pail
Dm 
God builds a church, the devil builds a chapel
 
If there’s  
Fm 
one thing you can say about mankind
 
There’s  
Dm 
nothing kind about man
 
You can  
Fm 
drive out nature with a pitch fork
 
But it  
Cm 
always comes roaring back again
Fm 
Misery’s the river of the world
 
The  
Fm 
higher that the monkey can climb, the
Cm 
more he shows his tail
 
Call  
Fm 
no man happy till he dies, there’s no
Cm 
milk at the bottom of the pail
 
God  
Dm 
tempers all the ruins for the new shorn lands
 
The  
Am 
devil knows the Bible like the back of his hand
 
All the  
Fm 
good in the world you can put inside a thimble
 
And  
Cm 
still have room for
C7 
you and me
 
If there’s  
Fm 
one thing you can say about mankind
 
There’s  
Cm 
nothing kind about man
 
You can  
Dm 
drive out nature with a pitch fork
 
But it  
Cm 
always comes roaring back again
 
For  
Fm 
want of a bird the sky was lost, for
Cm 
want of a nail the shoe was lost
 
For  
Fm 
want of a life a life was lost for
Cm 
want of a toy  
C7 
a child was lost
 
And  
Fm 
misery’s the river of the world
Cm 
Misery’s the river of the world
 
Everybody  
Fm 
row, everybody row
Cm 
Misery’s the river of the word
Fm 
Misery’s the river of the world
Cm 
Misery’s the river of the world
 
Everybody  
Fm 
row, everybody row
 
Everybody  
Cm 
row, everybody row
Fm 
Misery’s the river of the world
Am 
Misery’s the river of the world
 
Everybody  
Fm 
row, everybody row
 
Everybody  
Am 
row, everybody row
 
Everybody  
Fm 
row
Am 
Misery’s the river of the world
Fm 
Misery’s the river of the world
Am 
Misery’s the river of the world
Fm 
Misery’s the river of the world
 
Everybody  
Am 
row, 
 
everybody
Fm 
Everybody 
 
row
Am 
Fm 
Am
