   Lightning shot from the sky

   It breathed life into every, every living thing

Am          G   Em       C

It gave us the Kookaburra, it gave us

Friend Japan tree

   White on white, the Chrysler Tower had disappeared

   White on white, the capitol dome was invisible

            G Em C              G   G/F#   Em
   White on white, the hoisted flag had disappeared

Nice job with the tab, but for the perfectionists among us, the lyrics on the 5th and last line are not Friend Japan Tree, but frangipani trees. The error did make me chuckle though.
