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:
        DADGBE
G       000232
Am7/G   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


G                          Am7/G
Pastel red to burgundy and spinifex to gold,
                                                          G
We've just come out of the mulga where the plains forever roll.
                           Am7/G
Where Albert Namatjira has painted all the scenes,
                                           G
And a shower has changed the lustre of his land.


CHORUS:
                        Am7/G                G
And it's raining on the rock, in a beautiful country,
                        Am7/G                         G
And I'm proud to travel this big land like an Aborigine.
                        Am7/G                           G
And it's raining on the rock, what an almighty sight to see.
                     Am7/G                            G
And I'm wishing on a postcard that you were here with me.

G                         Am7/G
Everlasting daisies and a beautiful desert rose,
                                          G
Where does their beauty come from, heaven knows.
                              Am7/G
I could ask the wedgetail but he's away too high,
                                             G
I wonder if he understands it's wonderful to fly.


CHORUS

RUN-DOWN x2

   G                          Am7/G
It cannot be described with a picture,
                               G
The mesmerising colours of the Olgas.
                       Am7/G
Or the grandeur of the rock,
         G
Uluru is power!


CHORUS

RUN-DOWN x3
