A          E
Older Than Kosciuszko
Darwin down to Alice Springs
Dealers in the clearing-house
The Settlements explode
A       E
High up in the homelands
miners drive across the land
Encounter no resistance
when the people block the road
A          E
Older than Kosciuszko
dry white seasons years ago
darkness over Charleville
the fires Begin to glow

Older than Kosciuszko
Driven back to Alice Springs
Endless Storm & Struggle
Marks the spirit of the age

High up in the homelands
Celebration 'cross the land
Builds up like a cyclone
Now the fires begin to rage

   A           B
No end the the Hostility
C#m            E            D  D/E D/F# D/G
now they wanna be somewhere else
   A           B
No stranger to brutality
C#m                E          D D/E D/F# D/G
now they'd like to be someone else
 A       E
|       |      | ......
Call of the ultimanum
No don't turn away  ...etc
