A D A F#m D E A 
A D A F#m A D A D 
 A          D       A        F#m 
Won't you come on down the line 
   D        E       A 
Away from barren ground 
      A     D       A    F#m 
The harlot and the autocrat 
           D           E       A 
Are they driving you further down 
E              F#m       h        F#m 
The season's rhymes, they anchor me 
   D                h 
Against the raging tide 
 A        D       A          F#m 
Take you to the last wild place 
   D           E            A 
Skin and the stars they embrace 
    A       D       A       F#m 
A caveman could a saint become 
       D        E           A 
In a hospital ward on the Somme 
E        F#m       Bm       F#m 
We can dive into distant amoebas 
      D                       Bm   F#m E F#m E 
Our wings could melt in the sun 
        F#m   E 
I can shake 
        F#m   G 
I can move 
        F#m           Bm        F#m  E 
But I can't live without your love 
        F#m   E 
I can break 
       F#m   G 
Over you 
        F#m           Bm        F#m    D F#m D F#m   E 
But I can't live without your love 
A     D              A    F#m 
Our poet Henry Lawson he named them 
D            E       A 
The lay 'em out brigade 
  A         D     A        F#m   A D A D 
Here they come there they go 
A          D      A      F#m 
Oh great god of development 
        D       E      A 
Don't really know you yet 
A           D          A         F#m 
Coastline hosed down washed away 
     D            E              A 
Economics, now there's nothing left 
E            F#m     Bm          F#m 
Tomorrow's child takes concrete footsteps 
              D                     Bm      D A A E 
And they'll drink champagne or be damned 
          D         A          E 
And the storm is breaking now 
           D         A          E 
Yeah the storm is breaking now 
          D         A          E 
Yes the storm is breaking now
