Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
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…..


[Intro]

E
Listen now to the wind babe
Em7
Listen now to the rain
A
I feel that water
                      E
lickin' at my feet again

  Em            D/F# G       G/E
I don't wanna   see this   town no more
Am          G/E          C
Wastin' my days on the factory floor
C7
First thing you know
         B7                 Em   (Esus    Em) (x4)
I'll be back in Bow River again


[Verse 1]

              Em
Any time you want babe
               A
You can come around
C7             B7
Only six days separates me
          Em
From the great top end

(same chords progression)

I've been workin' hard
Twelve hours a day
And the money I save
Won't buy my youth again


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

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


[Chorus]

E
Listen now to the wind babe
Em7
Listen now to the rain
A                                     E
I feel that water lickin' at my feet again
  Em            D/F# G        G/E
I don't wanna   see this   town no more
Am       G/E        C     D
Too many years made up my mind
Em         D/F#G
To go or stay        right to my
A      B7
Dying day
  Em          D/F#  G       G/E
I don't wanna see another engine line
Am       G/E          C
Too many years and I owe 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


[Break]

(Em     D      Em
 A      G      A
 C7     B7     Em     (Esus  Em)) (x2)

(Em     A      C7     B7     Em     (Esus  Em)) (x4)


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

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


[Chorus]
(chorus chords 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] (x3)

Why not just put a capo on 1? why detune a semitone then capo on 2?
