Do Do Do Do Do Do Do

VERSE 1: (over bass and drums)
We don't serve your country
Don't serve your king
Know your custom don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

(With intro riff over top)
Do do do do do do do

We don't server your country
Don't serve your king
White man listen to the songs we sing
White man came took everything

(With intro riff)
Do do do do do do do

CHORUS:
   Bm           A          G
We carry in our hearts the true country

And that cannot be sto  - len
   Bm            A            G

And that cannot be bro  - ken

Do do do do do do do

Repeat earlier verse then:

We don't need protection
Don't need your land
Keep your promise on where we stand
We will listen we'll understand

CHORUS (TWICE) - Finish second chorus on B(no 3rd)

With intro riff(over top)
Mining companies, pastoral companies
Uranium companies
Collected companies
Got more right than people
Got more say than people

Looks good, messed about with learning this a few years ago but never finished -isn't there a key change toward the end of the song?
