Intro: |C/G-Cmaj7/G| Verse 1:
C/G-Cmaj7/GJanie, see how good the sky looks today,
A-Asus2I'll bet they're having fun up in Byron Bay - all our friends,
C/G-Cmaj7/G Oh, I'm feeling just a little bit blue.
A-Asus2I can tell it's been getting to you too - trying to make sense,
D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/G And the Sun - is shining up the end of the road,
G-Gsus2We don't even know where it goes,
A-Asus2We're outsiders without even knowing why.
Chorus 1:
D-Dsus2And I've got them Blue Bay Blues,
C/G-Cmaj7/GI've got them Blue Bay Blues,
G-Gsus2 A-Asus2I've got them Blue Bay Blues. - Now why?
Bridge: |C/G-Cmaj7/G| Verse 2:
C/G-Cmaj7/GNowa-days - we don't see so many friends here in town,
A-Asus2But I try not to let it get me down - guess they all got out?
C/G-Cmaj7/G I remember when we thought that we could fight it -
A-Asus2 I guess we got born in the wrong time - hid by clouds,
D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/GAnd the Sun - is shining up the end of the road,
G-Gsus2We don't even know where it goes,
A-Asus2We're outsiders without even knowing why.
Chorus 2:
D-Dsus2And I've got them Blue Bay Blues,
C/G-Cmaj7/GI've got them Blue Bay Blues,
G-Gsus2 A-Asus2I've got them Blue Bay Blues. - Now why?
Instrumental: |D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/G|G-Gsus2 A-Asus2| Verse 3: (Middle-Eight & Pre-Chorus)
G-Gsus2 Em-Em7From day to day I get less sure,
A-A7sus4 D-Dsus2Of where the other guy is going -
G-Gsus2 Em-Em7He's acting just as if he knows it all,
A-A7sus4 D-Dsus2But the seeds of doubt are sown.
C/G-Cmaj7/GAnd the Sun - is shining up the end of the road,
G-Gsus2We don't even know where it goes,
A-Asus2We're outsiders without even knowing why.

Coda: |D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/G|G-Gsus2 A-Asus2| |D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/G|G-Gsus2 A-Asus2| |D-Dsus2 C/G-Cmaj7/G|G-Gsus2 A-Asus2|(at A slowing pace) |D | (very slowly drawn arpeggio) [End] Notes. 1. From the promo: "Some of the songs on REWIRED are (more than) thirty years old. They have stood the test of time. Many of them have never been off the radio for the last 20 years in Australia. Reconstructing them acoustically allows us to hear them afresh." 2. This version differs from the original by being a semi-tone lower and the finger-picked complexity has been simplified. The flat picked arpeggiated chords are accompanied by a slide-guitar in this REWIRED version.
