VERSE 1:
D                           A
its a plume of dust down an old dirt road
     G
and hanging off the rails at the rodeo
D                    A
a back verandah with creaking boards
        G
and the dark range of a thunderstorm
        D                   A
its the stockmans bar at an old bush pub
    Bm               G
and chasing mickey's though the scrub
D                      A
its planting seeds and praying for rain
        G                A
and the red dust running through your veins


CHORUS:
               G                  D
its the way it is, its the way it goes
        G                     A                  D
when my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home
               G                     Bm    G
its the way of life, its the life i live
       D                     A

scones in the oven and preserves in jars
G
talking prces at the saleyards
    D                       A
its long straight roads and one horse towns
    Bm                  G
and sheep dogs bringing the mob around
    D                   A
its she'll be right and having a go
  G                    A

when my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home
               G                     Bm    G
its the way of life, its the life i live
       D                     A

BRIDGE:
      D                  A
its the eerie still in the grey of dawn
G/B                 G
feilds of wheat and rows of corn
D               A
a rusty tank and flaking paint
G/B               G
a weary digger on ANZAC day
D                       A  
its the dreamtime land and uluru
Bm         G
aborigine didgeridoo
D                   A
its batterd hats and calloused hands
  G            A
the spirit of a hard won land


OUTRO:
                     G                   D 
it's just the way it is, it's the way it goes
        G                     A                  D   
when my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home
                G                     Bm   G 
it's the way of life, it's the life I live
        D                     A 
and I'm right where I want to be
           Em         Em/F#   A 
a patch of ground and you and me
                  D 
that's the way it is
