__________________________________________
                                  
The real people went away

Em                                   Am
    But I'll find a better word, someday
                        Em   
Leaving only me and my dreams
    Am (5x)   Em[2] (3x)    Em
My cattle.......   and a resonator
I drove all the beast down right under your nose
The lumbering footloose power
                 Am (5x)
The bull and the rose
                 Em[2] (3x)	   Em	
Don't touch them      don't try to hurt them
     Am (5x)     Em[2] (3x)        Em
My cattle....................ts ts


C                     Am       C                            Am 
  I drove them by the crops      and thought the crops were lost
C            Am              Em
  I consoled myself with rudimentary thoughts
C              Am             C                  Am
  And I set my watch            against the city clock
       Em
It was way off


||:
G                           C     c/B  Am      C
  Yeah one thing about this wild, wild country
G
  It takes a strong, strong
C                  c/B     Am      C
It breaks a strong, strong mind		:||

G			      C
  And anything less, anything less
	    c/B        Am            C     
Makes me feel like I'm    wasting my time


Em                      Am      Em        Am
   But the pain and frustration,   is not mine
Em                   Am     Em
   It belongs to the cattle,   through the valley


Dm (or D5 etc.)
   And when my cattle turns on me
      Am           Em
I was knocked back flat
Dm                            Am		     Em
   I was knocked out cold for one clack of the train track
Dm                             Am                Em
   Then I rose a colossal hand buried, buried in sand


Am               Em
   I rose like a drover
Am                       Em
   For I am in the end a drover
Am             Em
   A drover by trade
Am                Em          
   When my cattle turns on me
Am             Em       Am (4X) Em[2] (4x) 
  I am a drover, double fold

Em[2]  
My cattle bears it all away for me and everyone
	       Dm[2]                              Am
One, one, one, one, one, one, one ...(another 8 times)


(as above)
G                           C     c/B  Am      C
  Yeah one thing about this wild, wild country
G
  It takes a strong, strong
C                  c/B     Am      C
It breaks a strong, strong mind		

G			      C
  And anything less, anything less
	 c/B           Am            C      Em
Makes me feel like I'm    wasting my time
