When A Small Town Dies

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		() 
 
D                               G                          
Dad worked at the abattoirs and mum looked after home  
 
D                               A7 
And our fibro house was on the five-mile zone 
 
D                       G                                                         
A little town with its good and its bad  
 
              D     A          D 
but we gave thanks for what we had 
 
D                                           G 	  	  	  
In our changing world they shut the meat works down  
 
D 	  	  	  	      A7 	  	  	  	  
I watched the gates close on the dusty ground 
 
D 	  	  	  	       G 	  
Dad was strong and silent with a tear in his eye 
 
 	     D 	  	 A           D 	  
he said I hate to see a small town die 
 
 
Chorus 
        G         D         G              D 
When a small town dies you lay its soul to rest 
 
         G              D             A7 
All the livin? lovin? workin? will be gone now I guess 
 
          G                   D       G             Bm                G              A 
Well it?d break my grandad?s heart if he were still alive to see this cherished old small 
  
     D 
town die 
 
 
    D                 G                  D                            A7 
For 3 generations our family?s been here through floods depressions laughter and tears 
 
 D                        G                        D                  A         D 
The pollies on the TV say everything is fine as we sit and watch out small town die 
 
 
Chorus 
 
Bm                                 G             D 
Well I caught the Brisbane Limited when I turned 18  
 
      Bm                     A7 
cried all the way to Lismore missin? family  
 
              D                        G      
you know I?d give my right arm not to have to wave goodbye but I don?t  
 
D             A          D 
Want to see a small town die 
 
 
Chorus 
              G           A          D 
To see this cherished old small town die
