Treaty by Yothu Yindi. From 1991's Tribal Voice.

Written by Paul Kelly, Mandawuy Yunupingu, Stuart Kellaway, Cal Williams, Gurrumul Yunupingu, 
Milkayngu Mununggurr, Banula Marika and Peter Garrett.

The verses that are sung in Aboriginal are over an F# digeridoo drone, 
but on guitar, you can play an F#5 or F#m. 
Also, in the chorus, a rhythm guitar moves from an F#m to an F#m6. 
You can also play the F#madd9 chord like it is in the intro during the first verse.

ALTERNATE CHORUS:
F#m          F#m6
Treaty yeah, treaty now 
F#m7         F#m6
Treaty yeah, treaty now

----


[Intro]

F#m    F#madd9 x4


[Verse]

       F#m
Well I heard it on the radio 
      F#m                         D
And I saw it on the television
D                                 F#m
Back in 1988, all those talking politicians
F#m
Words are easy, words are cheap
F#m                                                      D
Much cheaper than our priceless land
      D
But promises can disappear
              F#m
Just like writing in the sand


[Chorus]

F#m
Treaty yeah, treaty now 
F#m
Treaty yeah, treaty now

This land was never given up
F#m                                F#madd9   D
This land was never bought and sold
D                    (Dadd9) D
The planting of the union jack
      F#m                               F#madd9
Never changed our law at all
F#m                                     F#madd9
Now two river run their course
F#m                  F#madd9  D
Separated for so long
D                        (Dadd9)D
I’m dreaming of a brighter day
         F#m
When the waters will be one. C’mon!

F#m
Treaty yeah, treaty now
F#m 
Treaty yeah, treaty now
F#m
Treaty yeah, treaty now
F#m 
Treaty yeah, treaty now
