CAPO 2  - Men at Work Cargo Album version
No CAPO - Colin Hay Acoustic version from his album Men @ Work


[Verse 1]

D                A
I can't get to sleep
C                 G
I think about the implications
D                A
Of diving in too deep
C                  G
And possibly the complications
D              A
Especially at night
C             G
I worry over situations
D               A
I know will be alright
C                   G
Perhaps its just my imagination


[Chorus]

Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
F#m                   G       A
Ghost appear and fade away


[Verse 2]

D                  A                 
Alone between the sheets
C              G
Only brings exasperation
D                     A
It's time to walk the streets
C            G
Smell the... desperation
D                       A
At least there's pretty lights
C                         G
And though there's little variation
D                A
It nullifies the night
C         G
from Overkill


[Chorus]

Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
F#m                   G
Ghost appear and fade away....
A
come back another day

[Verse 3]

D                A
I can't get to sleep
C                 G
I think about the implications
D                A
Of diving in too deep
C                  G
And possibly the complications
D              A
Especially at night
C             G
I worry over situations now
D               A
I know will be alright
C             G
It's just Overkill


[Chorus]

Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
F#m                   G
Ghost appear and fade away....
F#m                   G
Ghost appear and fade away....
F#m                   G
Ghost appear and fade away....

Excellent. This is the acoustic solo version by the lead singer, Hay.

I recall Colin May doing a solo version on "Scrubs"
The D was barred at Fret 7, then left there but with string 5 dropped to C#. A Bit of a stretch with my small fingers, but it is worth the sound you get! Similarly the C barred and then the 5th dropped to B.
I don't recall if he barred the Bm at 7 or at 2, both sound fine to me.
Thanks for putting it up for me to find.
One of my favourite pieces of music.
