{Continue intro chords} 
 
One night I upon my motorcycle 
through the desert spead 
And smashed my body so that 
All my friends thought I was dead 
My sister held me close 
and whispered to my bleeding head 
 
{Tacet} 
'You are the son of a mother-fucker'    
one two three four 
 
  F# 
I shook all night and held her hand 
  G                                C#  G# G F# F#/E 
In tropic heat well I'll be damned 
F# 
Land of plenty, land of fun 
G                                C#  G# G F# F#/E   C#  G# G F# F#/E 
To find out I'm Nimrod's Son 
 
B         A            G 
  Oh bury me  far away please 
     F# 
Bury me 
 
{Repeat this}

{And then add the chords:} 
C# D B C#  C# D B C# 
 
The joke has come upon me 
 
 
In my motorcycle mirror 
I think about the life I've led 
And how my soul's been asking 
all the holes where I had bled 
My image spoke to me 
Yes to me and often said 
'You are the son of incestuous union' 
One two three 
 
Now my head is clear 
My luke hands washed 
My daughter's pure 
My son is whole 
Land of plenty, land of fun 
To find out I'm Nimrod's Son 
 
Oh bury me  far away please 
Bury me 
 
The joke has come upon me
