VERSE 2: (Starts with Em strum on guitar)
The backbone of this country's broken        G     A     G A Em
The land is cracked and the land is sore     G     A     G A Em
Farmers are hanging on by their fingertips   G     A     G A Em
We cursed and stumbled across that shore     D

CHORUS:
G      Dm
I hear much support for the monarchy
G          Dm              F
I hear the Union Jack's to remain,
G     Dm
I see Namatjira in custody
Am    Em            |C   C   C   C   |C   C   D   D|
I see Truganini's in chains

Blue collar work it don't get you nowhere    G     A     G A Em
You just go round and round in debt          G     A     G A Em
Somebody's got you on that treadmill, mate   G     A     G A Em
And I hope you're not beaten yet             D
