Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a (simplified) chord-only version of 
There Is No Depression In New Zealand, 
lyrics by Richard von Sturmer and music Don McGlashan in 1981.

I don't claim it to be my own 
but I feel it's an important New Zealand song 
and when I couldn't find chords or tabs for it 
online I thought I should rectify that!

Unfortunately due to my lack of skill I haven't included 
any of the solo bits; feel free to submit 
them yourselves if you know them.

Enjoy. :)
