Midnight Oil – In The Valley tab

     C                              F
My grandfather went down with the Montevideo
        C                   F
Rising sun sent him floating to his rest
         C                  a              D               F
And his wife fled south to Sydney seeking out safe harbour
   C                         a             D            F
A north shore matron she became with some paying guests
    C                         F
My father went down with the curse of big cities
          C                          F
Traffic tolls and deadlines took him to his peace
    C                 a                 D                 F
Now Bob Dyer glued us to our seats and lawns were always victa neat
      C                   a
Whilst menzies fawned at royal feet
D                F F(d")          F   F(g")
I'm sure you remember, do you remember


C       F        C            F        a   G
In the valley I walk, in the valley I walk
C       F        C  a  Bb       F       C
In the valley I walk, who will take me there
C       F        G           C            F
In the valley I walk, cold comfort I can hear you talk
C       F        a     Bb       F        G
In the valley I walk, who will take me there.


(play intro part)

         C                          F
When my mother went down it was a stiff arm from hades
          C                            F
Life surprises and tears you like the southerly
           C             a               D                  F
She always welcomed the strange, always welcomed the stranger
C                 a    D             F     F(d")  F           F(g")
I don't see too many around like this, oh no not many like this


                    Bb        F       G
Chorus:       ...I took some comfort there
C       F        G   C                    F
In the valley I walk, oh rough justice I hear you talk
C       F        a       Bb      F     G        Bb      F     G
In the valley I walk to meet my water shed, to meet my water shed
   Bb      F     D
I meet my water shed


                G
I hope virtue brings its own reward
    D                               G
And I hope the pen is mightier than any sword
D                     h
I hope the kids will take it slow
E                   G                   Bb F G F
I hope my country claims its own, yes I do


C       F        C                                 F            a
In the valley I walk, I cried, yes I cried, I was down then I crawled
C        F   a              Bb     F        G
Mercy's arms all around me when I was down there
C        F       a    C               F        a
In the valley I walk, do you read me they can hear me
C               a  |: F G F F(g") :| C
In the valley
