Midnight Oil – Koala Sprint tab

Koala Sprint

From the Head injuries album.

Tabbed by Matt Sheumack


(Tabbed for 2 Guitars)

And out from the echoes of the night
Concrete caverns catch the sky and hold the stars to ransom
 	A thousand dreams, it's getting late
	Thousand runners standing still
I can smell the sand and sea again
I've had enough away
 	City times down down, I've got to go
Lord don't let me wait, Stay low
			Am					Bb		Dm
'Cause I'm going up north again


   Am			    Bb	  Dm (play 2 times)
