Bow River  Cold Chisel

COMMENTS: I?ve transcribed the song in E.
If you detune your guitar a semi-tone and place a capo on the second fret ?
this chord progression matches pretty closely what Ian Moss plays live on his
acoustic sets, although the original Cold Chisel song was in A.
I?ve also included some extra notes in the chords to help pick (^) out the bass line.
The D (bass F#) is probably the trickiest, try your thumb ! Good luck?..
[E]Listen now to the wind babe
[Em7]Listen now to the rain
[A]I feel that water
lickin' at my feet aga[E]in
I [Em]don't wanna [D(bass]see thi[F#)]s [G]town no [G/E]more
[Am]Wastin' my d[G/E]ays on the fa[C]ctory floor
[C7]First thing you know
B7 Em [Esus] [ Em] x 4
I'll be back in Bow River again
[Verse 1] 
Any time you w[Em]ant babe
You can come ar[A]ound
[C7]Only six days s[B7]eparates me
From the g[Em]reat top end
I've been workin' hard
Twelve hours a day
And the money I save
Won't buy my youth again
[Verse 2] 
I'm going for the heat wave
And the tropical rain
And a place where no man's
Puttin' on the dog for me
I'm waitin' on the weekend
Set of brand new tyres
And back in Bow River
Just where I wanna be??ohh
[E]Listen now to the wind babe
[Em7]Listen now to the rain
[A]I feel that water lickin' at my feet a[E]gain
I [Em]don't wanna [D(bass]see thi[F#)]s [G]town no m[G/E]ore
[Am]Too many [G/E]years made [C]up my [D]mind
[Em]To go or st[D(bass]ay [F#)G] right to my
[A]Dying d[B7]ay
I [Em]don't wanna [D(bass]see ano[F#)]ther [G]engine l[G/E]ine
[Am]Too many [G/E]years and I o[C]we my mind
[C7]The first set of wheels
B7 Em [Esus] [ Em]
And back in Bow River again
[C7]First thing you know
B7 Em [Esus] [ Em]
I'll be back in Bow River again
[Em D Em
[A]C7 [G]B7 [A]Em (Esus Em)] x 2
[Em] [ A C7 B7 Em (Esus Em)] x 4
[Verse 3] 
I got the motor runnin'
I got the rest of my days
I sold everything I own
For just a song
So any time you want babe
You can come around
Don't you leave it too late
You just might find me gone?gone?gone
[Finale: Cborus cbord progression?from Em] 
I don't need the score
I'm walkin? out the door
I'm gonna tell the man
I don't want no more
Pick up a fast car
And burn my name in the road
One week, two week
Maybe even more
I'll piss all my money
Up against the damn wall
[First thing you know
I'll be back in Bow River again] x 3
[E] [Em7] [A] [Em] [D] [D] [G] [G/E] [Am] [C] [C7] [B7] [Esus]
