VERSE 1

      D               G
Let's put our heads together
    Em          G
and start a new country up.
    D                 G
Our father's father's father tried,
 Em                 G
erased the parts he didn't like.
      D                  G
Let's try to fill it in,
Em              G
bank the quarry river, swim.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em                   G
We knee-skinned that river red.

This is where we walked,
Em               Bm
this is where we swam.

Take a picture here,
Em               D
take a souvenir.

This land is the land of ours,
     Em             G
this river runs red over it.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em                   G
we knee-skinned that river red.
       D               G
And we gathered up our friends,
Em              G
bank the quarry river, swim.
D                  G
We knee-skinned it you and me;
Em             G
underneath the river bed.

Underneath the river bed

we burned the river down.
