Flame Trees  Cold Chisel


FLAME TREES by Cold Chisel
An old Aussie favourite by ex-mega band Cold Chisel. No big surprises
here, just a great tune. Enjoy.
Intro: A E A E
[A]The kids are driving and Saturday aftern[E]oon just passed me by
[A]I'm just savouring fa[E]miliar sights
[A]We shared some history,[E] this town and I
A B Abm Av
And I can't stop that long-forgotten feeling of her
[A]In time to book a r[B]oom and stay t[E]onight
Number 1 is to find some friends and say "you're doing well --
After all this time you boys look just the same"
Number 2 is the Happy Hour at one of two hotels
And settle in to play "Do you remember so-and-so"
Number 3 is never say her name
And oh the [A]flame trees'll [B]blind a weary [F#m]driver
Av B E
And there's nothing that can set fire to this town
There's no ch[A]ange, there's no p[B]ace, every[C#m]thing within its pl[E]ace,
Just makes it h[A]arder to be[B]lieve that she won't [E]be around
[A]Oh, who needs that sentimental [E]bullsh*t anyway
[A]It takes more than just a memory to [E]make me cry
[A]And I'm happy just to sit here at a [E]table with old friends
[A]And see which one of us can tell the biggest lies[E]
[A]And there's a girl, she's fallin' in love[E] near where the pianola stands
[A]With a young local factory auto worker -[E]- just holdin' hands
And I'm wo[A]ndering if he'll [Abm]go or if he'll s[B]tay
[C]Do you rem[G]ember, nothing [C]stopped us on the [G]field in our [D]day[E]
