G5 F5 C5 
C5                    G5             C5              G5 
I came down from the lonely north upon the lonely road 
  C5                  G5                 E5               D5 
I came round down to Brisbane Town the lonely seeds are sown 
      C5             G5           C5               G5 
Had a heavy weight upon my mind all the miles between 
    C5                      G5                    E5                  D5 
The guilty thoughts of the northern nights such lonely thought I've seen 

So I say 
B5  C5    G5        D5 
Woe Lord, give me fortitude 
                 C5                 G5             D5 
Take me down the Valley, where the lonely people dance 

And I say 
B5    C5   G5        G5 
Don't you, like my attitude 
There is nothing you can do or say 
     D5               C5 
When you have fallen on hard days 
    E5               C5                D5 
And you have got the arse out of your pants 

Who cares about romance? 
I have pockets bulging full of hard earned cash to spend 
Standing underneath the sign says Jesus is my friend 
You know that I have thoughts of family, I have children 1 2 3 
You know what they would think of me, standing here so desperately 
I never spared a thought for her, it was only for myself 
Not one single thought for money, and nothing for my wealth 
You know she didn't even ask my name, she did not venture hers 
And I never took my mind off that which would not be deterred
