Adelaide
(Paul Kelly)

G                             Em                               D
The wisteria on the back verandah is still blooming
    G                                     Em                      D
And all the great aunts are either insane or dead
G                                    Em                                      D
Kensington Road runs straight for a while before turning
   G                                           Em                              D
We lived on the bend it was there I was raised and fed

                        C      D     C   D
Counting and running as I go
                         C     Em        D
Down past the hedges all in a row
      G    Em   D           G    Em   D
In Adelaide, Adelaide In Adelaide, Adelaide

      G                                         Em                                D
Dad's hands used to shake but I never knew he was dying
G                Em                                         D
I was thirteen I never dreamed he could fall
    G                                       Em                              D
And all the great aunts were red in the eyes from crying
G                  Em                                  D
I rang the bells I never felt nothing at all
 
                       C      D                     C    D
All the king's horses all the king's men
            C      Em          D
Cannot bring him back again

G            Em           D
Do do do do  Do do do do  Do do do do  do do do do
G            Em           D
Do do do do  Do do do do  Do do do do  do do do do
G                            Em              
Find me a bar or a girl or guitar 
D
where do you go on a Saturday night?
  G                       Em                     
I own this town I spilled my wine at the 
D
bottom of the statue of Colonel Light
        G                                            Em
And the streets are so wide everybody's inside
D
Sitting in the same chairs they were sitting in last year
G             Em        D
     (This is my town!)

                       C     D                    C    D
All the king's horses all the king's men
                C      Em     D
Wouldn't drag me back again
      G    Em   D         G    Em   D
to Adelaide, Adelaide, Adelaide, Adelaide...(repeat and fade)
