F#m            Em               F#m               
Well there's a cold rain on the Autumn wind. 
          G                  F#m
A brother murdered in Sydney town.
  Em                         F#m
A Marrickville brother under legal cover.
       G                    F#m             Em      F#m         G    
In his home they gunned him down and we say oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh-ooh.

Oh they shot him down

and we say oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh.
             G          F#m                   Em F#m G F#m Em F#m G F#m
Sad river of tears, 200 years in the river of fear.


          Em              F#m
Well they took him out at point blank range 
       G                         F#m
in his home with his small young son.
         Em          F#m
Shot him dead in his Marrickville bed 
       G                    F#m
with a pump action 12 gauge shotgun.
Em      F#m         G        F#m              Em   F#m   G
Oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh oh. Oh they shot him down
F#m        Em      F#m         G    F#m   Em   F#m
and we say oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh.
             G          F#m                   Em F#m G F#m Em F#m G F#m
Sad river of tears, 200 years in the river of fear.


       Em                     F#m 
Left a fatherless child and a grieving wife.
        G               F#m 
A black fugitive on the run,
Em             F#m          G               F#m
running from 2 centuries, oppressions loaded gun,
           Em      F#m         G         F#m               Em    F#m
and we say oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh. Oh,they shoot you down.
             G          F#m                   Em      
Sad river of tears, 200 years in the river of fear.
         F#m        G         F#m               Em    F#m 
oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh. Oh they shoot you down.
             G          F#m                   
Sad river of tears, 200 years.

They got terrorists dressed in uniforms, under protection of their law.
Em                  F#m                      G                     F#m
Terrorise blacks in dawns of fear, they come crashin' through your door.
         Em                F#m                      G                F#m  
Your not safe out there on freedom street. Your not safe inside the "can".
               Em                 F#m 
For with their shotguns and their stun gas,
            G                  F#m 
licensed to drop you where you stand.


           Em      F#m         G        F#m                Em   F#m
And we say oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh. Oh they shoot you down.

Sad river of tears, 200 years in the river of fear.
        F#m         G        F#m                Em   F#m 
oh oh oh o oh oh oh o oh ooh. Oh They shoot you down.
             G          F#m   
Sad river of tears, 200 years.
