Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Looking forward,looking back- Slim dusty
Tune guitar down 1 step  Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb
The only tabs/chords I could find were rubbish so I sat down and worked it out myself.
This is a beautiful song that we played at my Dads funeral 
and is one of Slims finest works.The chords written are what you play, ignoring 
the drop in tuning.
The actual proper chords would be half a tone lower in name.
You could play it with a normal tuning but you would have to play the E in a 
high position and the open chord sounds better (I think).

Intro
E,B,E,B,E
        B               E                  C#m              G#m
Looking forward, looking back, I've come a long way down the track
       C#m             G#m            B                E
got a long way left to go,  makin' songs from what I know

         B                  E            C#m               G#m
Makin' sense of what I've seen, All the love we've had between
        C#m          G#m             B              E
You and I along the track, looking forward, looking back

             C#m                   F#m  G#m         C#m
There are strange days, full of change      on the way
             B             E              F#m               B
but we'll be fine, unlike some, I'll be leaning forward to see whats coming

        B               E                  C#m              G#m
Looking forward, looking back, I've come a long way down the track
      C#m             G#m            B                E
got a long way left to go,  makin' songs from what I know

Instrumental part (same as chorus)

           C#m                           F#m G#m           C#m
If I'm alone at night I can see, through all        triviality
           B       E            F#m               B
of the day and I'm ok ,I just think of those who are dear to me

         B               E                  C#m              G#m
Looking forward, looking back, I've come a long way down the track
      C#m             G#m            B                E
got a long way left to go,  makin' songs from what I know
        B                 E               B              E
makin' songs from what I know, Looking forward, looking back
