[Verse]
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7Leaving my family behind me
Bm EmNot knowing what lay ahead
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7Waving goodbye, as I left them in tears
Bm CRemembering all we'd said
C D/CI looked to the sky, I offered my prayers
Bm7 CI asked Him for guidance and strength
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7But the simple beliefs of a simple man
Bm DLay in His hands, and on my head, my head

[Bridge] (Continue guitar riff above)
E5 D/E A/EWe worked in gangs for all we were worth
E5 A/E G/EThe young boys pulling the wagons
E5 D/E A/EWe were digging the tunnels, shifting the earth
E5 A/E G/EIt was then that it happened
A5 G/A ANo-one knew how the cracks appeared
G/A A G/A A D/ABut as it fell they all disappeared
G/A D/A AStone fell like rain
[Chorus]
E A/E G/E A/ECan you hear me

[Verse]
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7The smoke cleared, the dust it settled
Bm EmNo one knew how many had died
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7All around there were broken men
Bm CThey'd said it was safe, and they'd lied
C D/CYou could hear the cries, you could smell the fear
Bm7 CBut good fortune that day was mine
G D/F# Cmaj7/E D7And it occurred to me that the heart of a good man
Bm DIt seems is hard to find
[Chorus]

[Post-Chorus]
D GWe worked, how we worked like
C D C GThe devil for our pay
D GThrough the wind, through the snow
C D C GAnd through the rain
D G C D C GBlasting and cutting through Gods country like a knife
D G C D CSweat stinging my eyes, there has to be a better life
G D GAh but I can hear my children's cry
C D CI can see the tears in their eyes
G D GMemories of those I've left behind
C D CStill ringing in my ears
G D GWill I ever go back again
C D6Will I ever see her face again
C/D Bm/DI'll always remember that night
C/D G/D Dsus2 Asus4 A7As they waved goodbye to their fathers
[Interlude]
G/B BmWe came from the North
D A/C#And we came from the South
G/B F#m/AWith picks and with spades
GAnd a new kind of order
A/G G Em7Showing no fear of what lies up ahead
C#m7 A7/E D G C D G CThey'll never see the likes of us again
[Post-Chorus]
DDriving the last spike
G C D G CLifting and laying the track
DWith blistering hands
G C D CAnd the sun burning your back
G D GOh but I can hear my children's cry
C D CI can see the tears in their eyes
G D GAh memories of those I've left behind
C D6Still ringing in my ears
C/D Bm/DWell I'll always remember that night
C/D G/D Dsus2 Asus4 A7As they waved goodbye to their fathers
G/B Bm D A/C#We followed the rail, we slept under the stars
G/B F#m/A GDigging in darkness and living with danger
A/G G Em7Showing no fear of what lies up ahead
C#m7 A7/E DThey'll never see the likes of us again
