A New South Wales  The Alarm

INTRO: Cm
VERSE 1:
[Cm]Pit shaft wheels turn for the last time in the [Fm]Rhondda tonight
The [A#]Davey lamps that shone so brightly, there's [G]no more need for their light
[Cm]As the last piece of coal is cut from the [Fm]belly of the black seamed hole
A [A#]man walks home alone, past the [G]church full of mourning souls
CHORUS:
[Fm]Throughout his [A#]lifetime he has [D#]fought, he has [D]given his [Cm]life
[Fm]In tears the cong[A#]regation sing come [Cm]Rhondda oh my lord
[G#]Great is the rape of the [Fm]fair country
To [C#]Botany Bay for my [D#]great grandfathers [G#]deportation sale
[G#]Great, so great is the [Fm]fair country
[C#]Great is the [D#]need for a new south [Fm]Wales
VERSE 2:
[Cm]The slag heap stares, it blocks out the sky, it [Fm]keeps this Rhondda grey
The [A#]stale beer spills from angry drinkers, their [G]arguments do the same
A [Cm]choir voice cries, it shatters the silence, where's [Fm]the future in this place
The [A#]question hangs unanswered, all [G]eyes on a new born babe
CHORUS:
[Fm]In another [A#]lifetime men fought [D#]hard, men [D]gave their [Cm]lives
[Fm]For the charter that would [A#]save their sons, come [Cm]Rhondda oh my lord
[G#]Great, great change in the [Fm]fair country
The [C#]future lies with our [D#]sons and daughters, [G#]south will meet with north
[G#]Say, say a prayer for the [Fm]fair country,
[C#]Great is the [D#]need for a new south [Fm]Wales
INSTRUMENTAL (verse chords): Cm Fm A# G X2
CHORUS:
[Fm]Throughout a [A#]lifetime men have fought,[D#] men have [D]given their [Cm]lives
[Fm]To hear a cong[A#]regation sing come [Cm]Rhondda oh my lord
[G#]Great, great change in the [Fm]fair country
The [C#]future lies with our [D#]sons and daughters, [G#]south will meet with north
[G#]Say, say a prayer for the [Fm]fair country,
[C#]Great is the [D#]need for a new south [Fm]Wales
ENDING:
[Cm]Oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer, [Cm]oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer, [Cm]oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer
[Cm]Oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer, [Cm]oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer, [Cm]oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer
[Cm]Oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer, [Cm]oh, [A#]oh, [G#]someone hear my prayer for a [Bb]new south [C]Wale[F]s
