INTRO:
|F  G|F  G|F  G|


VERSE 1:
                F              
Standing at the limit of an endless ocean,
                G                        
Stranded like a runaway lost at sea.
F
City on a rainy day down in the harbour,
            G             
Watching as the gray clouds shadow the bay.
             F
Looking everywhere, ‘ had to find you,
            G
This is not the way that I remember it here.
             F
Anyone, will tell you it's a prisoner island,
          G
Hidden in the summer for a million years.


REFRAIN 1:
               Am   C/G  D  Am
Great Southern Land,
                      C/G  D  Am
They burned you black.


VERSE 2:
            F  
So you look into the land, it will tell you a story,
              G  
Story about a journey ended long ago.
              F                        
Listen to the motion of the wind in the mountains,
              G   
Maybe you can hear them talking, like I do?
              F
They're gonna betray you, they're gonna forget you,
                       G
Are you gonna let them take you over that way?


CHORUS 1:
               Am   C  D  Am 
Great Southern Land,
                    C  D  Am       
In the sleeping sun.
                C  D  Am 
You walk alone,
                       C  D  Am 
With the ghost of time.
                           C  D  Am 
And they burned you black,
                         C  D  Am 
Black against the ground.
                      C  D  Am 
And they make it work,
                    C  D  Am 
With rocks and sand.


VERSE 3:
E5              E4     
I hear the soun-d,
E5                      E4
Of the strangers' voice-s.
E5                     E4 
I see their hungry eye-s,
E5               E4  
Their hungry eye-s.


CHORUS 2:
               Am   C  D  Am 
Great Southern Land,
                    C  D  Am  
Great Southern Land.
               C  D  Am  
You walk alone,
                     C  D  Am  
Like a primitive man.
               C  D  Am  
You walk alone,
                       C  D  Am  
With the ghost of time.
                          C  D  Am  
And they burned you black,
                           C  D  Am  
Yeah, they burned you black.


CHORUS 3 & CODA:
                       C  D  Am  
Gr-eat South-ern La-nd.

:: INSTRUMENTAL (Riff plays over) ::
                    C  D  Am  
Great Southern Land,
                    C  D  Am  
Great Southern Land,
                    C  D  Am  
Great Southern Land.          (Slow arpegiatted fade-out)


Iva Davies:  “Thank you very much, indeed!”
 

[End]

NOTES.
1.  Despite attention to Iva’s chord changes, I apologise in advance if there’s a subtle change I 
didn’t pickup?  I didn't realise initially, that this performance was a Half-Step Down.
2.  “Icehouse - Great Southern Land - Performed live on campus at the Australian Institute of Music 
Graduation ceremony 2015.”

For some reason you've put the chorus down a semitone to the rest of a song. You'll realise if you quickly run though the song. Thanks for charting it up though! X
