THE GREAT DIVIDE
© 2007 Craig Stewart
**NOTE – PLAYED IN A WITH CAPO ON 2ND FRET**

B G#m E F#
B G#m
There’s a fire burnin’ in my soul, as I watch the sunset sinkin’ low
E F#
I feel it’s warm golden glow, callin’ me to come back home
B G#m
So I packed my bags just up and left, loaded up to head out west
E F#
This city life’s been put to rest, ‘cos a country heart beats in my chest

G#m E B F#
Now I’m, flying up a mountain road, feelin’ like I’m home again
G#m E F#
The smell of eucalyptus stirs my pride

CHORUS
E B
It’s the Great Divide, she’s callin’ me, Those rugged, wild mountain streams
F# B
Cut through the gates of green that rise so high
E B
And open wide, this land I love, The only place that I dream of
E F# B G#m
Is on the other side, of the Great Divide

B G#m
From the Murray to the Top End, she’s stood and drawn a line
E F#
Marked with RM Boots, Toyota utes, hard work & dusty smiles
B G#m
It’s wear a man’s word is his handshake, and his value on this earth
E F#
Has got more to do with stayin’ True Blue, than the money that he’s worth

G#m E B F#
Now I’m, kickin’ back inside my swag, starin’ up at stars again
G#m E F#
The crackle of a campfire by my side

(CHORUS)

SOLO OVER CHORUS

G#m E B F#
Yeah I’m, flying up a mountain road, feelin’ like I’m home again
G#m E F#
The smell of eucalyptus stirs my pride

(CHORUS X 2)
