INTRO: 

E  A  B7  E


VERSE:

E                             A                  E
A city girl is happy with her friends and family life
E             B7                E
Appreciates a wine with him at night
    E                             A                 E
She tries to find the sparkle she searches but it's gone
     E                B7                E
With lots of love she hopes he'll be alright
    E                                  A
Her man has gone all quiet he's not at ease
   B7                                 E
He doesn't feel at home he's hard to please
 E                                A
He get's itchy feet he's tired of noises in the street
B7                                      E
He needs to walk for hours through the trees

CHORUS:

     E                              A
No a bushman can't survive on city lights
B7                               E
Opera rock n roll and height of heights
    E                           E
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
A                  A
Shimmers down the inland river flow
B7                 B7           E
Out there where the yellow belly bite

INSTR:  E   A   A  B7   B7  E  E

VERSE:

E                                A              E
He's working with his hands today on a building site
E               B7               E
He can smell the cypress on the floors
   E                         A                 E
It takes him to a sandy ridge out amongst the pines
   E              B7         E
No shearin' no ploughin' anymore
    E             E               A
His kelpie dog is tired and fast asleep
B7                                  E
Tired of searching gardens for the sheep
    E                               A
His master doesn't whistle tunes he's not in the mood
    B7                            E
His love for open spaces runs too deep


CHORUS:

   E                              A
No a bushman can't survive on city lights
B7                                E
Opera rock n roll and height of heights
    E                            E
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
A                       A
Shimmers down the inland river flow
B7                 B7             E
Out there where the yellow belly bite


VERSE:

E                                 A           E
He tries to please his woman the lady of his life
     E             B7           E
He's standing at a party with a plate
E                            A              E
She finds him on the balcony staring at the moon
E              B7            E 
An old familar face he can relate

CHORUS:

     E                              A
No a bushman can't survive on city lights
B7                               E
Opera rock n roll and height of heights
    E                            E
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
A                      A
Shimmers down the inland river flow
B7                   B7           E
Out there where the yellow belly bite
    E
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
A                        A
Shimmers down the inland river flow
B7                                E
Out there where the yellow belly bite

OUTRO: 

E   A    B7   B7 E
