Adelaide
(Paul Kelly)

G                   Em                     D
The wisteria on the back verandah is still blooming
    G                       Em               D
And all the great aunts are either insane or dead
G                    Em                          D
Kensington Road runs straight for a while before turning
   G                        Em                     D
We lived on the bend it was there I was raised and fed

             C      D     C   D
Counting and running as I go
              C     Em        D
Down past the hedges all in a row
      G    Em   D           G    Em   D
In Adelaide, Adelaide In Adelaide, Adelaide

      G                       Em                  D
Dad's hands used to shake but I never knew he was dying
G                Em                     D
I was thirteen I never dreamed he could fall
    G                        Em                   D
And all the great aunts were red in the eyes from crying
G                  Em                    D
I rang the bells I never felt nothing at all
 
              C      D               C    D
All the king's horses all the king's men
       C         Em    D
Cannot bring him back again

G            Em           D
Do do do do  Do do do do  Do do do do  do do do do
G            Em           D
Do do do do  Do do do do  Do do do do  do do do do
G                  Em              
Find me a bar or a girl or guitar 
D
where do you go on a Saturday night?
  G               Em                     
I own this town I spilled my wine at the 
D
bottom of the statue of Colonel Light
        G                        Em
And the streets are so wide everybody's inside
D
Sitting in the same chairs they were sitting in last year
G             Em        D
     (This is my town!)

               C     D               C    D
All the king's horses all the king's men
         C      Em     D
Wouldn't drag me back again
      G    Em   D         G    Em   D
to Adelaide, Adelaide, Adelaide, Adelaide...
