[Asus4 Asus4-Bsus4 Bsus4][Gsus4 Gsus4]
[Asus4 Asus4-Bsus4 Bsus4][G G][G G]


Verse #1:
G G G G
See my old man has a broken heart
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
He got a leaky valve and aneurysm, but trace it back to the start
G G G G
When that big ol' fire came towards the Nannup town
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
Well that greedy thing burnt more than the bush down



Chorus:
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
You can bury that head and try to forget
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - G G G G
He's still waking up with Coffee, Methadone & Cigarettes



Verse #2:
G G G G
In the summer of fifty-eight when innocence, shattered and broke
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
The tree, the egg, the nest, the breast, the yolk
G G G G
When those thieving flames took my Granddad from my Pa
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
Gnd ever since then we've been mending all those scars


Chorus:
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
But the bandages and ointments ain't done it
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - G G G G
He's still waking up with Coffee, Methadone & Cigarettes


Verse #3:
G G G G
That broken bird somehow grew
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
With the seven brothers and sisters moved from the country to the zoo
G G G G
Between the legacy visits and the boarding schools
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
Yes he learned to dodge the books and he learned to dodge the fools


Chorus:
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
Says he's made mistakes but lives with no regrets
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - G G G G
He's still waking up with Coffee, Methadone & Cigarettes


Solo:
[G G][G G][Em Em-Asus4 Asus4][Gsus4 Gsus4] x2
[Asus4 Asus4-Bsus4 Bsus4][Gsus4 Gsus4]
[Asus4 Asus4-Bsus4 Bsus4][G G][G G]


Verse #4:
G G G G
Grandma on Sunday, used to eat the chicken leg
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
She said she wasn't hungry and the kids could have the rest
G G G G
When those kids grew they learnt what she'd done
Em Em - Asus4 Asus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
She would go hungry for all of them she'd go hungry for everyone


Chorus:
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - Gsus4 Gsus4
Gnd now she's gone and it's hell in the hand basket
Asus4 Asus4 - Bsus4 Bsus4 - G G G G
He's still waking up with Coffee, Methadone & Cigarettes

Well that greedy thing burnt more than the bush down |
