[Intro] 
E A x4


[Verse 1]
E                         A      E
I seen Mountains Blue and desert plains
E                      B       A
cities old and forests green
A       E         C#m      A       E
But wherever I go my heart aches
E       B             E
For the sunny Land of Queen


[Chorus]
C#m A E          B
Oh . . come with me
          A                E
where the Bundy flows like wine
        A                B
And the meth labs are divine
C#m A E        B
Oh . . I wanna be
          A           E
where the mango trees sway
          A                B
picked by poor backpacking slaves
       A       E
In the Land of Queen


[Verse 2]
E                          A         E
It’s a place where all the canetoads dwell
E                      B     A
and the bogan folk run free
A             E                  C#m    A      E
where all the children can spell Four X well
E      B                 E
but cannot spell Land or Queen


[Chorus]
C#m A E          B
Oh . . come with me
            A                 E
where every paddock’s full of roos
         A           B
no-one’s ever seen a Jew
C#m A E        B
Oh . . I wanna be
          A               E
where the cops are on the take
          A           B
and every dunny has a snake
       A       E
in the Land of Queen


[Instrumental]
E A E / E B A / A E C#m A E / E B C


[Chorus]
C#m A E          B
Oh . . come with me
      A              E
where Pauline Hanson shouts
               A                    B
that if you’re brown you’d best get out
C#m A E         B
Oh . . I wanna be
      A                E
where daylight savings died
            A                B
and all the hippies hate flouride
       A       E
in the Land of Queen


[Verse 3]
E                       A       E
Home of Cathy Freeman’s feet of gold
E                      B      A
Barry Gibb and stars galore
A       E             C#m A     E
I’m not saying it’s a shithole
E                 B            E
but... they don’t live there anymore


[Chorus]
C#m A E          B
Oh . . I want to see
          A               E
where the beaches are the best
        A                 B
but the Health system’s a mess
C#m A E          B
Oh . . come with me
            A              E
where every second car’s a ute
                 A              B
that’s where the classy couples root
               A
in the Land of Queen
                      E
oh . . in the Land of Queen
