Raining on the Rock  John Williamson

RAINING ON THE ROCK - John Williamson
Transcribed by Daniel Schaumann
Raining On The Rock is in Drop-D tuning with a capo on the 1st fret,
although it will be much less confusing if I do the transcription
without taking the capo into account:

CHORD FORMATIONS:
D [DADGBE]000232
Em7/D 010000
NOTE: In the first verse & chorus, only the bottom three strings are
strummed (as in the intro), but after the run-down full chords
are used
[D]Pastel red to burgundy and [Em7/D]spinifex to gold,
We've just come out of the mulga where the plains forever [D]roll.
Where Albert Namatjira has [Em7/D]painted all the scenes,
And a shower has changed the lustre of his [D]land.
CHORUS:
And it's raining on the [Em7/D]rock, in a beautiful [D]country,
And I'm proud to travel [Em7/D]this big land like an Aborigin[D]e.
And it's raining on the [Em7/D]rock, what an almighty sight to [D]see.
And I'm wishing on a [Em7/D]postcard that you were here with [D]me.
CHORD FORMATIONS FOR RUN-DOWN:
 
 E|---11---9----7---5---2---0---|
 B|---10---10---8---5---3---0---|
 G|---10---9----7---6---2---0---|
 D|---0----0----0---0---0---0---|
 A|---0----0----0---0---0---2---|
 D|---0----0----0---0---0---0---|

[D]Everlasting daisies and a [Em7/D]beautiful desert rose,
Where does their beauty come from, heaven [D]knows.
I could ask the wedgetail but [Em7/D]he's away too high,
I wonder if he understands it's wonderful to [D]fly.
CHORUS
RUN-DOWN x2
It [D]cannot be described with a [Em7/D]picture,
The mesmerising colours of the [D]Olgas.
Or the grandeur of the [Em7/D]rock,
Uluru is [D]power!
CHORUS
RUN-DOWN x3
