Ripple

Song Author Jerry Garcia Lyrics by: Robert Hunter Performer: The Grateful Dead Submitted by: retinus
[G]If my words did glow with the gold of [C]sunshine
[C]And my tunes were played on the harp unst[G]rung
[G]Would you haear my voice come through the [C]music
[C]Would you [G]hold it [D]near [C]as it were your [G]own?

[G]It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are [C]broken
[C]Perhaps they're better left un[G]sung
[G]I don't know, don't really [C]care
[G]Let there be [D]songs [C]to fill the [G]air  

[Am]Ripple in still [D]water
When there [G]is no pebble [C]tossed
Nor [A]wind to [D]blow

Reach out your [G]hand if your cup be [C]empty
[C]If your cup is full may it be aga[G]in  
[G]Let it be known there is a [C]fountain
[G]That was not [D]made [C]by the hands of [G]men  

[G]There is a road, no simple [C]highway
[C]Between the dawn and the dark of [G]night
[G]And if you go no one may [C]follow
[G]That path is [D]for [C]your steps [G]alone

[Am]Ripple in still [D]water
When there [G]is no pebble [C]tossed
Nor [A]wind to [D]blow

eYou who [G]choose to lead must [C]follow
[C]But if you fall you fall al[G]one  
[G]If you should stand then who's to [C]guide you?
[G]If I knew the [D]way [C]I would take you [G]home

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you haear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

eYou who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home
