[Intro]
G    C    Gm    C
Gm    C7sus4    Cm   G

[Verse 1]
       Gm             C            G           C
Well I worked on a railroad, for tuppins a day.
  Gm        C         Cm         G
I drank down one penny, the other I'd save.
   Gm           C             G             C
I hammered my hammer, for God knows how long.
 G         C           Cm            Gm
Well into madness, with each setting sun.
  G           Cm           Gm              C
I put my head down, and I dreamt you were here,
    Gm         C7sus4              Cm            G
With me by the old tree, where no one could care.

[Chorus]
Gm              Cm            Gm         C7sus4
Far away boys, Far away boys. Away from you now.
G              C                Cm            Gm
I'm lying with my sweetheart; in her arm's I'll be found.


[Verse 2]
       Gm             C            G           C
Then the sun belched upon me, you were no longer here.
      Gm        C         Cm         G
Lying in your place was my hammer and my gear,
   Gm              C             G             C
So I stamped out the fire that kept us both warm.
 G         C             Cm            Gm
The ashes were falling, like the snowdrops of old.
 G            Cm           Gm              C
We came to a mountain, dynamite and she'll blow,
    Gm          C7sus4          Cm            G
A big hole in that rock, like the one in my soul.


[Solo]
G    Cm    C7sus4   Gm
Gm    Cm    G    D


[Verse 3]
       Gm             C            G           C
We buried four workmen, they dug themselves well.
  Gm        C         Cm         G
From four empty coffins, to four early graves.
   Gm              C             G             C
"They're only paddies just paddies, don't dig them too deep.
 G         C                Cm                Gm
You'll need all your strength boys, they're replaced easily."
 G         Cm           Gm              C
With the heat I was melting into your sweet lips,
Gm             C7sus4             Cm            G
Ah, your kiss takes me back, takes me back from all this.


[Chorus]
Gm              Cm            Gm         C7sus4
Far away boys, Far away boys. Away from you now.
G              C                Cm            Gm
I'm lying with my sweetheart; in her arm's I'll be found.


[Verse 4]
       Gm             C            G           C
Someone said it was Christmas; not a tree was in sight.
  Gm        C         Cm         G
The only thing growing was my will to die.
  Gm              C             G             C
'Till the gaffer said "Men, your work here is done."
 G         C                   Cm            Gm
He said "I'll see you in Hell, on that train we died for."
 G           Cm           Gm           C
Never again, will I smell your sweet drink,
Gm            C7sus4            Cm            G
But a piss-stained old gutter where, your lips used to be.


[Solo]
G    C    Cm   Gm

[Chorus]
Gm              Cm            Gm         C7sus4
Far away boys, Far away boys. Away from you now.
G              C                Cm            Gm
I'm lying with my sweetheart; in her arm's I'll be found.

Gm              Cm            Gm         C7sus4
Far away boys, Far away boys. Away from you now.
G              C                Cm            Gm
I'm lying with my sweetheart; in her arm's I'll be found...
