BLOW UP THE POKIES - The Whitlams
Transcribed by Daniel Schaumann 


Fmaj7         Em
There was the stage
Fmaj7                Em
Two red lights and a dodgy P.A.
Fmaj7                        G
You trod the planks way back then
Fmaj7                        G     Am    G     F
And it's strange that you're here again, here again


      C            G          Am
And I wish, I wish I knew the right words
   C             G            Am          F
To make you feel better, walk out of this place
      C            G           Am     F
And defeat them in your secret battle
G             Am          Em       F
Show them you can be your own man again


Fmaj7          Em
Don't, don't explain
Fmaj7                    Em
Lots of little victories take on the pain
Dm                  Em7
It takes so long to earn
Dm                   G       Am    G       F
You can double up or you can burn, you can burn


      C            G          Am
And I wish, I wish I knew the right words
   C             G            Am          F
To make you feel better, walk out of this place
      C            G           Am     F
And defeat them in your secret battle
G             Am          Em       F
Show them you can be your own man again


SOLO:  C   G   Am   F  (x4)


      C            G          Am
And I wish, I wish I knew the right words
   C           G          Am         F
To blow up the pokies and drag them away
              C          G             Am    F
Cause they're taking the food off your table
G           Am           Em            F
So they can say that the trains run on time


         Fmaj7               Em
Flashing lights, it's a real show
         Fmaj7               Em
And your wife, I wouldn't go home
Dm                      Em7
The little bundles need care
Dm                 G      Am     G      F
And you can't be a father there, father there


      C            G          Am
And I wish, I wish I knew the right words
   C             G            Am          F
To make you feel better, walk out of this place
      C            G           Am     F
And defeat them in your secret battle
G             Am          Em       F
Show them you can be your own man again
G             Am          Em       F
Show them you can be your own man again


      C            G          Am          F
And I wish, I wish I knew the right words
   C           G          Am         F
To blow up the pokies and drag them away
              C          G             Am    F
Cause they're taking the food off your table
G           Am           Em            F
So they can say that the trains run on time
 G                Am           Em            Fmaj7
Another man there was made the trains run on time
