Sydney from a 727
by Paul Kelly

G     C G   C G   C G D G
G     C G   C G   C G D G
G                                              Em
Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night? (Yeah)
C           G                 D
Sydney shines such a beautiful light
    G                                                      Em  
And I can see Bondi through my window way off to the right (Yeah)
          G                  D
And the curling waves on a distant break
          Em                  C
And the sleeping city just about to wake
         G                     D      G
Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
G     C G   C G   C G D G
        G                                                        Em
Now the red roofs are catching the first rays of the morning sun (Yeah)
   C                G                    D
My eyes are full of sand from my midnight run
        G                                                      Em
And the captain says belt up now we'll be touching down in ten (Yeah)
     G                   D
So I press my seat and I straighten up
  Em                    C
I fold my tray and I stash my cup
       G                          D                      G
As the red roofs are catching the first rays of the morning sun 
G     C G   C G  G C D G
G     C G   C G  G C D G
G                                                             Em
Have you ever fallen for a girl with different coloured eyes? (Yeah)
    C             G        D
And sent her letters full of lies
         G                                                      Em
Have you ever longed to see the sun fall where it used to rise? (Yeah)
    G                   D
And quit your city job on the spot
 Em                        C
Bought that ticket yeah spent the lot
         G                  D                          G
Have you ever fallen for a girl with different coloured eyes?
G     C G   C G   C G D G
G     C G   C G   C G D G
G                                       Em

(Alernative last line - from Paul Kelly Tribute concert)
c                  D              G     G   C G
Me I've never seen Jetstar fly on time

HI, The intro seems to be wrong; it is as follows;
Em G, Em G, Em D G
Same with the bits between the verses.

Hi,
Checking a number of YouTube clips, the intro for Sydney from a 727 (747) is
G C G C G C G D G.
If you go to some of the clips from Paul Kelly's A - Z concerts and look at what Dan Kelly is playing in the background with a capo on the fifth fret it clearly shows it. One good clip is on:
