~~~~~~
                          G5
From this chair I see the sun
                         C
Bathe me in shadows of Commission flats.
                              Am
Though the cold does touch my arm,
                   C            G5
I turn to face the fire on telly.


                      G5
A generation with our hands in blood,
                         C
Like all the generations gone before,
                                    Am
And though we thought we learnt our lessons,
                   C             G5
It seems we learnt them too well.


           Am         C         G5
So darling share this wine with me.
                         Am     C         G5
We'll be together on the eve of World War III
                                Em
And will the children that have grown so high
       C                   G5                            C
In the back of our minds - slip through our fingers like oil.

                           G5
I think I must have seen a thousand films
                                  C
Where all the boys come back from Vietnam
                                       Am
And when they said they'd purged their conscience,
                            C
For a second I thought they meant it.


                             G5
So in the congress hear them plead,
                                 C
And try and carve their words in history
                               Am
Though we all fear the loss of life,
                     C              G5
Our leaders fear the rise in global petrol prices.


           Am         C        G5
So darling share this wine with me.
                         Am     C         G5
We'll be together on the eve of World War III
                                Em
And will the children that have grown so high
       C                   G5                           C
In the back of our minds - slip through or fingers like oil.

A word on the fill's - According to Craig at BHP, the G string is played open for both FILL's #1 & #2. I'm undecided, though I'm starting to think this may be the case. ************************************************************************** HEIDELBERG ~~~~~~~~~~ Things of Stone and Wood Timing: 4/4 A Well I got your breath, [Whole verse is played with a palm-muted A, play But I do not breathe your politics FIG #1 repeatedly over the top] While you'd sing With eyes so close together We focus in different directions, Hey we look the same But not the same way, Same way at all.

************************************************************************* HAPPY BIRTHDAY HELEN ~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~ Things of Stone and Wood This is the best I can do so far. The chords for the extended chorus at the end are possibly wrong - If anyone finds something wrong, tell me - I want to play it right too. As far as the 'solo'(if thats what you'd call it) goes, don't hasle too much about the D note running through it. If you're playing in a group, it won't be missed (in fact, I don't think TOSAW worry about it much when they play it live anyway). Otherwise you can just get the bass to play - probably best. Chords: D(group) consists of Dsus D D(9) D -INTRO D C(9) G5 C(9) D(group) D(group) Let's not forget last night, C(9) (Yeah) how we drove along the Yarra, G5 C(9) D(group) How we sang harmonies to Carole King. D These three years now just gone, C(9) They are the legends of my mind, G5 C(9) Dsus D We both kneel at these rocks and drink of the memories D(9) D G5 You are the tunes in my head, C(9) Dsus D The fire in my ribs, . D(9) D G5 C(9) G5 G5 You are the voice in my heart that whispers compassion Happy Bithday Helen. D C(9) G5 C(9) D(group) D We kissed on that bridge that fell down C(9) While we held hands at the Taj, G5 C(9) D(group) We've been stuck in a cave with that bloke who says 'Oi Am', D And when I cried for my cruel heart, C(9) You rubbed my back 'til I felt better, G5 C(9) Dsus D We ate bread on the lake and yearned for the seasons. D(9) D G5 You are the tunes in my head, C(9) Dsus D The fire in my ribs, . D(9) D G5 C(9) G5 G5 You are the voice in my heart that whispers compassion Happy Bithday Helen.

A C D I saw the anger in your smile, C A I felt your hate still burn on naked flesh, C D I saw you swear upon your lie, C A C D A C D I kissed the scars and they have burned my lips. A C D A C D C D C You say you've seen it all, D C But what can you show, A C D A C D A C D You've got you're hate, A C D Wrapped around you. A C D A C D A C D You've got you're hate, A C D Wrapped around you. A C D I heard the love professed for all, C A I saw it locked inside your front door, C D I heard your blessings like the sun, C A C D A C D A C D A C D I felt the loathing deep within your touch C D You say you've seen it all, C D C But what can you show, A C D A C D A C D You've got you're hate, A C D Wrapped around you. A C D A C D A C D You've got you're hate, A C D Wrapped around you.

I'm not a great fan of this song, so I haven't put too much work into transcribing it - sorry if you do like it. G Well I wander round this mind amidst the G Ruins of a lonely child, G I used to think I talked with spirits G Now I think I talk with crooks, G And I wonder if I ever did G Anything good at all. G Ever. G So I lie awake at night and vow G I'm not going to think about. C G I've got self deception tattooed like a flag across my back, C G Holding hands with war-mongers I feel I've been betrayed, C G Though I dance in luxury without her I'll die of thirst, C G She's a single perfect raindrop, C When she falls she takes my breath away. G Well I advertise the scars of middle classness G Like a shiny piece of junkmail, G I've inherited the meanness G Like a dinnerset kept for family gatherings, G But she will scream and tell me all the G Magic in her magic life, G We will laugh at how I'm scared of G Everything that moves lest it crash G Into me or with me in it. C G I've got self deception tattooed like a flag across my back, C G Holding hands with war-mongers I feel I've been betrayed, C G Though I dance in luxury without her I'll die of thirst, C G She's a single perfect raindrop, C When she falls she takes my breath away. C G Ah ..... What a dissapointment this would all be C Ah ..... What a dissapointment. C G 'Cause I've got self deception tattooed like a flag across my back, C G Holding hands with war-mongers I feel I've been betrayed, C G Though I dance in luxury without her I'll die of thirst, C G She's a single perfect raindrop, C When she falls she takes my breath away. ********************************************************************** IN OUR HOME ~~ ~~~ ~~~~ Things of Stone and Wood The intro isn't definitive, it's just a guide - I usually play it different every time.

Hold That Breath you shall blow Sending lovers from here back to Melbourne Pass them over Hey-ey ...

P - Pull off I'll post up if I get anywhere) / - slide up G5 Csus9 Across this land everybody settled down Am To a night of fitful dreams C And strange apparitions G5 Csus9 As we tossed and turned we saw ourselves exactly as we are Am C And not surprisingly we found it frightening G5 Csus9 Am C Hey! G5 Well you don't choose the place or choose the time Csus9 But history's a slippery slide Am C Be careful of those nasty drops down to the right G5 When your hit it must seem a pretty good choice Csus9 For they give all of our malice voice Am C What do we expect if we won't open our arms G5(?) Csus9(?) (Singin' Hey) We're all just earings to the left of our parents Am C They're all just haircuts to the left of theirs G5 And we all wonder Csus9 "Why do nazis grow like wildflowers!" G5 (Hey!) Helen let's ditch the car let's hide Csus9 We'll through seeds of doubt at passersby Am They will cross onto our side, C We'll sing our songs into the night G5 As we cast off all those strange facades Csus9 We'll see that we're all uniquely scarred Am By the same hand C Beneath the same smile G5 Csus9 (Singin' Hey) We're all just earings to the left of our parents Am C They're all just haircuts to the left of theirs G5 And we all wonder Csus9 "Why do nazis grow like wildflowers!" G5 Csus9 Everybody dreams the same visions in the end Am C I know, everybody feels trapped and tired G5 So if you see a strange door to your right C Then drop your things and run for it G5 Csus9 (Singin' Hey) We're all just earings to the left of our parents Am C They're all just haircuts to the left of theirs G5 And we all wonder Csus9 "Why do nazis grow like wildflowers!" G5 Csus9 Am C "Why do nazis grow like wildflowers!"
