Streets Of A Black And White Town

	  		Tabbed by Brian Ree ([email protected]) 
Additional 'live' lyrics tabbed by Harry Ree 
Intro: 
G Em (6X) 
 
        G                         Bm 
Sid and Billy took the train from Taree 
           C          D      Em 
In Central Station at four a.m 
         C         D       G F# Em 
And they walked up Regent St. in the rain 
           C                D        G 
and took a piss against the mortuary fence 
  
                         Bm 
Six cousins lived on Caroline St 
             C            D        Em 
Bill was an orphan and he knew no one 
       C         D              G F# Em 
It was Wednesday, the dole was in the bank 
            C      D               G 
We're gonna have a holiday in the sun 
____________________________ 
Chorus 
 
 
        C       D      G 
Build a bonfire in the street 
C        D    G 
Everyone come around 
          C     D              G F# Em 
Watch the rain fall like diamonds from heaven 
       C            D              G      Em  G  Em  G  Em 
on the streets of a black and white town 
 
                 G                     Bm 
They spent their money at the Courthouse hotel 
       C              D         Em 
In two days they were flat broke 
C           D               G F# Em 
They'd come looking for a brighter dream 
            C              D              G  
But found a nightmare deep inside the big smoke 
 
 
Kids with habits that they just couldn't handle 
People flying by the seat of their pants 
Blinded by the sights of the high rise lights 
Staggering, they never had a chance 
 
Chorus 
 
G       C       D      G 
Build a bonfire in the street 
C        D    G 
Everyone come around 
          C     D              G F# Em 
Watch the rain fall like diamonds from heaven 
       C            D              G      Em  G  Em  G  Em 
on the streets of a black and white town       Yeah! Go Edmund 
(*Perry wipes sweat off his brow in Lillee-like fashion) 
 
Solo: Goes something like this;

Sid and Billy rolled a drunk in the park They took a low ride up to the station With two flaggons of brown musket and a carton of Winfields They were off to see some more of the nation The sun shone along the tracks The red rattlers shook like sense-a-round But Sid and Billy they felt fuck all Inside the cells of a black and white town Repeat Chorus Any corrections or comments to: [email protected]
