Play like a waltz mod-fast...two strums for every pick

Intro: B E

 E                                  A          E
From Townsville to Greenvale we're building a line
                                      A            E
Through the ranges and gorges to the great nickel mine
The long days are dusty and hotter than hell
            B                               E
And that's why we all worship Three Rivers Hotel

 E                                A            E
It's Theiss Brothers camp on the banks of the Star
                                A             E
Where men from all nations and walks of life are
And it's funny to listen to the stories they tell
       B                                   E
Every night round the bar in Three Rivers Hotel

 E                              A                 E
We curse at the things that go wrong through the day
                             A       E
And vow that we'll snatch it go far away
But when day is done and we're soon feeling well
      B                                   E
And laughter rings out from Three Rivers Hotel

 E                             A           E
There's Wesley the barman and young irish Joe
                         A            E
Serving the booze and collecting the dough
What a stir they would cause if they ever should tell
          B                                      E
All the secrets they've learned in Three Rivers Hotel

 E                                  A         E
On the night after pay day there's fun and romance
                                  A           E
It's a night for the families to sing and to dance
You can let down your hair and come out of your shell
    B                                  E
And do your own thing in Three Rivers Hotel

 E                                        A               E
And if you listen to the bosses when the night's getting late
                                    A           E
On the progress they're making the best in the state
They'd be finished this line and this maintenance as well
          B                                       E
If they worked like they bragged in Three Rivers Hotel

 E                                        A        E
And if you think you can drink we've got money to back
                          A          E
On stayers like Cass and old grader Jack
And they tell me old Coster gives everyone hell
          B                                 E
When he gets on the booze in Three Rivers Hotel (Yeah he's a whopper)

 E                               A          E
When this job is finished we'll pack up and go
                                A          E
To another construction still chasing big dough
But where ever I wander my memory will dwell
           B                         E
On those happy days in Three Rivers Hotel

Repeat 1st verse twice- After 1st time yell (yeah come on Coster)
