G                Em              C               G
I wish I was in Wellington, the weather's not so good

G                        Em
The wind it cuts right through you and

    C                    C
it rains more than it should


C                   D       G         Am
But I'd be there tomorrow, if I only could


      Bm               C
Oh I wish I was in Wellington

(ramp up tone)

    G             Em          C         G
I wish I was in Wellington - the bureaucracy.

      G         Am (high harmony)   C       D
The suits and the briefcases along Lambton Quay [pronounced "Kee"]

        C            D7          Em    Am7     Am
 The Harbour City Capital, the lights beside the sea


      G                  C
Oh I wish I was in Wellington


G             Em         Bm              Am
It just isn't practical, you down in the capital


    C          Am              C    D
And me at the other end of the island (syncopated)

Am                  D       Em             C
The problem is the gap - between us on the map

Am                   C          D       Dsus2  D
And there's no easy way to reconcile it

G                   Em         C               G
I wish I was in Wellington, the cafes and the bars

G                   Em,         C               C
The music and the theatre, and the old Cable Car

 C                   D              G             Am
And you can walk everywhere 'cause nowhere's very far

 G                 C        roll up to D
Oh I wish I was in Wellington

     G
Oh I wish...
