[Intro]
Bm //////               G //
   Hey Mr. Gold Man! 
Bm                      G
   Where's my pay? 
Bm                      G       
   Hmmm Mr. Gold Man! 
Bm                      G
   Not one more day. 
Bm                      G                               F# ////////
   Misterrrrr!          Can't you hear my children cryin’?

[Verse 1]
Bm  ////                G  ////
Came to Pretoria in ’46, 
Bm                  F#
to find myself a job. 
Bm                      G
Met a man with a broken arm, he said: 
C#m            G#7  Bm           F#     
Come along with us, get onto the bus.

[Chorus 1]
Bm      G         D   F#    Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! I'm for sale!
Bm      G         D            F#     Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Please don't turn away.
Bm      G         D     F#    Bm            G      F# 

Hey Mr. Gold Man! Can't you hear my tummy rumbling? 

[Verse 2]
Bm                          F# 
So we continued down the road, 
Bm                    G
till we got to the mine.
Bm                            G 
Dirt and dust all around us now.
C#m           G#7   Bm               F#
Hey! I didn't mind, cause I'm on the workline. Oh!

[Chorus 2]
Bm      G         D       F#  Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Where's my pay?
Bm     G         D           F#     Bm
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't wait another day.
Bm     G         D     F#  Bm             G       F#
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't you see I'm almost dying?

[Verse 3]
Bm                           F#
Then I heard a good friend say: 
Bm                         F#
“There's a happening in Town”
Bm                         G
Come and join the Union, boy. 
C#m                           G#7  Bm                     F#
'Cause today, we ain't going down, we're gonna stand our ground.

[Chorus 3]
Bm      G         D       F#  Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Where's my pay?
Bm     G         D           F#      Bm

Oh Mr. Gold Man! Won't wait another day.
Bm     G         D      F#  Bm               G       F#
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't you hear the thunder coming?       Ohhhhh!

[Chorus 4]
Bm      G         D      F#    Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Loose these chains.
Bm       G         D           F#   Bm
Time Mr. Gold Man! Change is on its way.
Bm     G         D      F#   Bm               G       F#

Go Mr. Gold Man! Don't come back, this is my country now

Use a capo on the 2nd fret and hit the "transpose" down arrow button (on the left side of the tab) twice and play that way if you don't want to barre all the chords.
