Capo 1

Intro: D


 D                       E
From coast to coast by night and day
           A7               D
Hear the clicking of the wheels
      G              
The humming of the diesel

On her ribbons of steel
 A
Carrying the memories

Of a nation built by hand
                                 D
See the Indian Pacific span the land


 D                           E
She's the pride of all the railway men
        A7               D
Cross country where she flies
          G    
From the blue Pacific waters

To where the mountains rise
     A
By lakes and wide brown rivers

Through desert country dry
                               D
See the Indian Pacific passing by


         G
Oh the Indian Pacific 
           D
She goes rolling down the track
       G 
Five thousand miles to travel
 D                      A
Before she's there and back
 D                  E
Beside the line a drover waves
      A7               D
His battered old grey hat
     G
And kids are catching yabbies

Down by the river flat
       A
And a woman hangs her washing

In the backyard near the line
                                D
As the Indian Pacific's rolling by


Fiddle Solo : D G D A D G D A D


 D                         E
Hear the whistle blowing lonely
             A7            D
'Neath the Nullabor star light
 G                       
Saluting those who walked across

The track she rides tonight
 A 
Calling to the railway camp

And the fettlers on the line
                                 D
I'm the Indian Pacific right on time


 D                       E
From the silver of the Broken Hill
    A7             D
To old Kalgoorlie gold
 G
She mirrors all the colours

Of the land so hard and old
           A
Then the western flowers are blooming

And the air is just like wine
                                 D
And the Indian Pacific's making time


         G
Oh the Indian Pacific 
           D
She goes rolling down the track
        G            
Five thousand miles to travel 
 D                      A
Before she's there and back
           D             E
From the waters of the western sea
         A7           D
To the eastern ocean sand
      G       A               D
The Indian Pacific spans the land
         G       A               D
Oh The Indian Pacific spans the land
