Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Melbourne Song  Colin Hay

Tuning: Double dropped D (DADGBd)
Capo on the second fret.
The tab and chord fingerings are relative to the capo, but the chord names
aren't. I don't know some of the names, so it seems easier to note it by the
actual notes used in some of them. If you have more appropriate names for
some of the chords, let me know.

And you would be like the gentle breeze
B* E
And we will live with ease
Repeat pattern throughout.
I've never been out west you know
But I might go there, just to share a drink or two with some friends I knew
Its you that I love
I can't get enough, and I'll get back to you
If you want me to
I've never been to Mexico
But I might just buy a sombrero, get up and go
Lie around in the sun
Till evening comes, then we'll cruise into town
And throw tequilas down
(He strums the chords for a lot of the rest)
I think I'll buy a panel van, hug the coast
Maybe get a tan, get stuck behind a caravan
The land was stripped bare
Just nothing there, so we headed down
Back to Melbourne town
Said I don't know why
I don't know why, I always stay here
It's you that I love, I can't get enough
And I'll get back to you
If you want me to
Its pretty much the same pattern through with some minor variations in the
picking/strumming. Comments/corrections welcome in terms of chord names or
if I've missed anything.
