Intro -x2-: Bm A Bm  G A

Bm             A         Bm    G A
Traveling in a fried-out combie
Bm          A                   Bm   G A
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
Bm              A                 Bm     G A
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
Bm          A              Bm   
She took me in and gave me breakfast
    G   A
And she said


D                  A         Bm   G A
Do you come from a land down under? 
D           A            Bm     G A
Where women glow and men plunder? 
D                         A        Bm      G A
Can t you hear, can t you hear the thunder? 
D                   A           Bm    G A
You better run, you better take cover.


Bm                  A      Bm      G A
Buying bread from a man in Brussels
Bm                   A           Bm     G A
He was six foot four and full of muscles
Bm             A          Bm      G A
I said, do you speak-a my language? 
Bm                 A                  Bm   
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
    G  A
And he said


D                  A         Bm   G A
Do you come from a land down under? 
D           A            Bm     G A
Where women glow and men plunder? 
D                         A        Bm      G A
Can t you hear, can t you hear the thunder? 
D                   A           Bm    G A
You better run, you better take cover.


Bm         A      Bm    G A
Lying in a den in Bombay
Bm           A            Bm         G A
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
Bm            A                      Bm      G A
I said to the man, are you trying to tempt me
Bm        A                     Bm   
Because I come from the land of plenty? 
    G  A
And he said


D                      A         Bm   G A
Oh! do you come from a land down under? -oh yeah yeah-
D           A            Bm      G A
Where women glow and men plunder? 
D                         A        Bm      G A
Can t you hear, can t you hear the thunder? 
D                   A           Bm    G A
You better run, you better take cover.


D                      A         Bm   G A
Oh! do you come from a land down under? -oh yeah yeah-
D           A            Bm      G A
Where women glow and men plunder? 
D                         A        Bm      G A
Can t you hear, can t you hear the thunder? 
D                   A           Bm    G A
You better run, you better take cover…
