D  Bm9  Gmaj7  D  A

It's a lovely day in Ballarat
   Em            Gsus2          D
I'm kicking back thinking of you
I hear that you've been poorly
     Em                Gsus2       D
I am sorry that you're feeling blue

I know what it's like when you feel a little shitty
    G                                               A
You just wanna curl up and have an itty-bitty doona day
But a lot of people here really miss ya, Georgie
     G                                              A
They really think you oughta a just get on a plane (just get on a plane)

We all just want you to…

D                   Bm9                             Gmaj7
Come home, Cardinal Pell, I know you're not feeling well
                           D                A
And being crook ain't much fun, even so, we think you should come
D              Bm9                           Gmaj7
Home, Cardinal Pell, come down from your citadel
                                  D                   A             Gmaj7
It's just the right thing to do, they have a right to know what you knew

                Gmaj7                     D
Couldn't you see what was under your nose, Georgie
Back in '73 when you were living with Gerry?
      Bm9                        D
Is it true that you knew but you chose to ignore,
Or did you actively try to keep it buried?
          G                                   D/B             A
And years later when survivors, despite their shame and their fear,
      G                                              D/A          A
Stood up to tell their stories, you spent year after year
        G                            A
Working hard to protect the church's assets?
            Em7                                  A
I mean with all due respect dude, I think you're scum,

and I reckon you should…

D                   Bm9                              Gmaj7
Come home, Cardinal Pell, we know you're not feeling well
                           D                A
Perhaps you just need some sun, it's lovely here you should come
D                     Bm9                      Gmaj7
Home, you pompous buffoon, and I suggest do it soon
                        D                  A
I hear the tolling of a bell, and it has a Pellian knell

  Bm9                             A                                      D
I wanna be transparent here, George, I'm not the greatest fan of your religion
      Bm9                               A                           D
And I personally believe that those who cover up abuse should go to prison
         G                       F#m
But your ethical hypocrisy, your intellectual vacuity
         G                            A
And your arrogance don't bother me as much
       G                                   A
As the fact that you have turned out to be such a goddamn coward

You're a coward Georgie
Come and face the music Georgie
You owe it to the victims Georgie
Come and face the music, the music, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

(notes only)
(d e   f#     g      a  g  g  f#    e    d)
If the Lord God omnipotent reigneth
He would take one look at you and say

D                 Bm9                           Gmaj7
Go home, Cardinal Pell, I've got a nice spot in hell
                         D                 A         
With your name on it and so, I suggest you toughen up and go
D              Bm7                                  Gmaj7
Home, Cardinal Pell, I'm sure they'll make you feel well
                        D                     A
Come at the pub in Ballarat, they just want a beer and a chat

D                   Bm7                                Gmaj7
(Come home Cardinal Pell) I know you're scared Georgie-Poo

                D                       A
(Come home)        They have a right to know what you do

Your time is running out to atone, Georgie
I think the Lord is calling you home, Georgia
Perhaps he could forgive even you (he may forgive even you)
If you just let them know what you knew

D            Bm9                             Gmaj7               
Oh, Cardinal Pell, my lawyer just rang me to tell me
                       D          A
This song could get me in legal trouble
D                 Bm9                        Gmaj7
Oh well, Cardinal Pell, if you don't feel compelled
                  D                A
To come home by a sense of moral duty
   Gsus2              A                 D
Perhaps you will come home and frickin' sue me
