Hungry Years – Weddings, Parties, Anything

F          F  C       F          F  C

C                                        F               F
Mama, mama, come and listen now and I’ll tell you what I saw
F                                 C
I was down by the railway gates – I was feeling bored
       F                     C   
Then a goods train rolled up clickety-clack
F                      C
You say there ain’t no special in that
           F                    F      C
But it was crowded down, it was loaded down
     F               F        C
With men all wearing rags and frowns
       F                       F         C
And if you want to listen what I’ve been told
   F                F         C      F                    C
Tonight it’s on for young and old in our town, tonight in our town.

          F       C               F       C
Won’t you spare a smile, can’t you shed a tear
         F                   F                  C
In these sad times, in these bad times in these hungry years

     C                              F             F
Some say they are pickers, they are up for honest work
F                  C              F
Some they are just hard time men, a little bit down on their luck
   F                 C            F                   C
So why is it you are frowning dad, when I say they’re not that bad?
            F                     F    C
Oh they are tired men, they’re unhired men
     F                       F        C
They ain’t slept warm since who knows when
       F                      F           C
And if you want to listen, if you want to know,
     F              F            C        F                    C
It’s caution to the wind they’ll throw in our town, tonight in our town

          F       C               F       C
Won’t you spare a smile, can’t you shed a tear
         F                   F                  C
In these sad times, in these bad times in these hungry years

C                     F            F
We are very many, and you are very few
    F             C                         F
And if we want to steal your girls – that’s just what we will do
            F                 C               F                  C
‘Cause you drove us from your cities, and you drove us from your trains
           F               F     C             F               F   C
And we are down and out in Ouyen town, and you know we are Mildura-bound
       F                   F        C
And if you want to listen, use your brains,
F                   F         C         F                   C
You’d better let us join your train and leave this town – I hate your town

          F       C               F       C
Won’t you spare a smile, can’t you shed a tear
         F                   F                  C
In these sad times, in these bad times in these hungry years
