BELLBIRDS & BLACKBOYS
© 2007 Craig Stewart

Played in G with capo on 5th fret

CHORUS
G F C
Well, I’m windin’ up a backroad, wrapped ‘round a mountainside
F C F G
Bellbirds & blackboys, racing on by
F G C G/B Am
Sun in the sky, feeling I could fly,
F G C
Down in my valley home

C F C
As a boy I used to wander, across the Great Divide,
Am F G
Lie around and wonder, about the world outside
C F
Son of a farmer with a head full of dreams,
C G C
Sorry Dad, this ain’t the life for me

So I loaded up the falcon with everything I owned,
Set out to find the answer, beyond my valley home
And I can still remember, just how it felt that day
Walkin’ out the front door & drivin’ away, I was …..

(CHORUS)

Well, I swung on down to Sydney, to check those city lights
All quite impressive but I missed the stars at night
So up the coast I wandered to Surfers Paradise
Couldn’t give a 4X, but the girls sure were nice

Out to Kalgoorlie, workin’ on the mines
Makin’ lots of money, but spendin’ all my time
Sittin’ in the front bar, just drinkin’ like a fish
Although I love the company I couldn’t help but wish

(CHORUS)
SOLO OVER CHORUS


MIDDLE 8
G F C
Well lookin’ back along the track, I’ve covered every stone
F G
Tryin’ to find my destiny
G F C
And I’m thinkin’ that I’ve been and had enough of a roam
F G C
And there’s really only one place for me

(CHORUS X 2)
