My grandfather went down with the Montevideo
        C                   F
Rising sun sent him floating to his rest
         C                  A              D               F
And his wife fled south to Sydney seeking out safe harbour

A north shore matron she became with some paying guests

My father went down with the curse of big cities
          C                          F
Traffic tolls and deadlines took him to his peace
    C                 A                 D                 F
Now Bob Dyer glued us to our seats and lawns were always victa neat

I'm sure you remember, do you remember

C       F        C            F        A   G
In the valley I walk, in the valley I walk
C       F        C  A  Bb       F       C
In the valley I walk, who will take me there
C       F        G           C            F
In the valley I walk, cold comfort I can hear you talk

In the valley I walk, who will take me there.

         C                          F
When my mother went down it was a stiff arm from hades
          C                            F
Life surprises and tears you like the southerly
           C             A               D                  F
She always welcomed the strange, always welcomed the stranger

I meet my water shed

I hope virtue brings its own reward
    D                               G
And I hope the pen is mightier than any sword
D                     H
I hope the kids will take it slow
E                   G                   Bb F G F
I hope my country claims its own, yes I do

C       F        C                                 F            A
In the valley I walk, I cried, yes I cried, I was down then I crawled
C        F   A              Bb     F        G
Mercy's arms all around me when I was down there
C        F       A    C               F        A
In the valley I walk, do you read me they can hear me
C               A  |: F G F F(G") :| C
