Everythings Turning To White by Paul Kelly
Tabbed by Bj Grace - bjthedj85 at

G                                     	  C           G 
Late on a Friday my husband went up to the mountains with 3 friends
G          	  	  	  	  	   C                      G
They took provisions and bottles of bourbon to last them all through the weekend
Em        G                      Em                  C 
One hundred miles they drove just to fish in a stream
C      G 	 C     D             G  	    C 	  G
There's so much water so close to home

When they arrived it was cold and dark, they set up they're camp quickly
Warmed up with whisky they walked to the river where the water flowed by star clean
In the moonlight they saw the body, of a girl floating face down
There's so much water so close to home


   C              G
As he holds me know I'm pretending
   C              D
It feels like i'm frozen inside
            C        G            C       G
And behind my eyes, my daily disguise 
C       D            G         
Everything's turning to white

It was too hard to tell how long she's been dead
The water was that close to freezing
But one things for sure, the girl hadn't died very well to judge from the bruising
They stood there above her all thinking, the same thoughts at the same time
There's so much water so close to home

So here's what they did, they carried her downstream ,
between two  rocks they gently wedged her
After all it was late they had come a long way well the girl she was going nowhere
They stayed up there fishing for two days, they reported when they came back down
There's so much water so close to home


The newspapers said the girl had been stragled to death, and also molested
On the day of the funeral, the radio reported that a young man had been arrested
I went to the service a stranger, I drove past the lake out of town
There's so much water, So close to home
