[Verse 1]
(E riff *) [x2]
   Out where the river broke, the Blood Wood, and the Desert Oak,
(E riff *) [x2]
Holden wrecks, and boiling diesels, steam in 45 degrees!


[Pre-Chorus]
     E                D/E
The time has come, to say fair's fair,
   A/E               E
To pay the rent, to pay our share,
     E                D/E
The time has come, a fact's a fact,
        A/E                   F#              E  G  A
It be - longs to them, let's give it back!  | /  /  /  / | /  / |


[Chorus]
Em                          C
How can we dance when our earth is turning?

To pay the rent now, to pay our share!

  Four wheels scare the cockatoos, from Kintore East to Yuendumu,

The Western Desert lives and breathes, in 45 degrees!


[Pre-Chorus]
