INTRO:

                   Bm              E          D 
I think I hear the sounds of then, and people talking 
    Bm              E         D 
The scenes recalled by minute movement 
    Bm              E        D 
And songs they fall from the backing tape 
     Bm               E            D 
That certain texture, that certain smell 
 
 
To lie in sweat, on familiar sheets 
In brick veneer on financed beds 
In a room of silent hardiflex 
That certain texture, that certain smell 
 
 
E               Bm 
Brings home the heavy days 
Bm              D          E 
Brings home the night time swell 
 
Bm         D    E     G 
Out on the patio we'd sit 
Bm        D     E     G 
And the humidity we'd breathe 
Bm             D        E           G 
We'd watch the lightning crack over cane fields 
Bm        D     E        G       Bm 
Laugh and think, this is Australia. 
 
 
The block is awkward, it faces West 
With long diagonals, sloping too 
And in the distance, through the heat haze 
In convoys of silence the cattle graze 
 
 
That certain texture, that certain beat 
Brings forth the night time heat 
 
 
Bm         D    E     G 
Out on the patio we'd sit 
Bm        D     E     G 
And the humidity we'd breathe 
Bm             D        E           G 
We'd watch the lightning crack over cane fields 
Asus4                A               Bm 
Laugh and think that this is Australia.

In brick veneer on financed beds 
In a room of silent hardiflex 
That certain texture, that certain smell 
 
 
Brings forth the heavy days 
Brings forth the night time swell 
 
 
(x2): 
Out on the patio we'd sit 
And the humidity we'd breathe 
We'd watch the lightning crack over cane fields 
Laugh and think, this is Australia 
 
This is Australia 
This is Australia 
This is Australia
