John Williamson
[Intro]
Em  D/F#  C  D/F#  G
 
[Verse 1]
G           D/F#  G      D/F#
Bags in the boot, guitar away,
G          D/F#             G      D/F#
We've done our best another day,
G            D/F#           C                 D/F#
Numbers were down blame the floods, blame the fire,
G          D/F#              G      D/F#
Top up the tank, check the tyres.
 
[Chorus]
        Em                        D/F#
I could see the clouds build over Tamworth,
         Em          C       D/F#
Feel the wind nearly blow me away,
Em                       D/F#
Like a rolie polie I'm a blowin',
      C           D/F#         G
Here today gone tomorrow they say.
 
[Verse 2]
          G          D/F#             G         D/F#
And we'll sing as we go head down the highway,
     G             C         D/F#
Talk about all the people we know,
   G          D/F#        G        D/F#
We come every year to the valley,
        C         D/F#        G
For the music and ro----de----o.
 
[Chorus]
          Em                       D/F#
You don't want to get stuck on the Northside,
    Em          C                D/F#
The river runs right through the town,
         Em                      D/F#
Yes it's over in time to hit the road Jack,
         C             D/F#         G
When the lightning and rain tumbles down.
 
[Instrumental]
Em  D/F#  Em  C  D/F#  Em  D/F#  C  D/F#  G
 
[Verse 3]
   G               D/F#   G        D/F#
So stay strong you unsung heroes,
   G            C         D/F#
Be glad you are part of a team,
       G           D/F#      G        D/F#
You'll always come up with a winner,
         C            D/F#      G
When you realise your part of a dream.
 
[Chorus]
        Em                        D/F#
I could see the clouds build over Tamworth,
      Em             C          D/F#
As we search for the words that ring,
        Em                    D/F#
All the bells in the tower of legends,
       C             D/F#          G
with a song that our children will sing.
 
[Chorus]
          Em                       D/F#
You don't want to get stuck on the Northside,
    Em         C                 D/F#
The river runs right through the town,
         Em                      D/F#
Yes it's over in time to hit the road Jack,
         C             D/F#         G
When the lightning and rain tumbles down.
 
[Outro]
       Em                 D/F#
I look up to the tower of legends,
         C             D/F#         G
When the lightning and rain tumbles down.
