Dm
Well its headlights, and white lights, and Black Tar Rivers
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
They're dragging me around this country as it withers
Dm
The billboards, signposts, standing in the way
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
Tell of the state of the nations, that we find today


       Bb           F           Eb
And we play and we play and we play
       Bb           F           Eb
To every day, every day, every day
      Bb
Every day


Dm
And in the front rooms of old towns far from the city
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
With beaten up guitars and hearts full of pity
Dm
The people gather round singing songs from everywhere
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
They're torn from the nation, left without a care


       Bb           F           Eb
And we play and we play and we play
       Bb           F           Eb
To every day, every day, every day
      Bb
Every day


          Gm             F           Gm          Bb
And we'll rid the bloody world for a moment in a word
          Gm             F
And we'll rid the bloody world cos
    Eb                                  Bb
The words that you heard when you were young will always stay
    F                               Eb
The one's that always stay make the world go away
    Eb                                  Bb
The words that you heard when you were young will always stay
    F                               Eb
The one's that always stay make the world go away
    Bb
Go away


Dm
Warm night, clear sky, European town
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
Outside the bars singing their hearts out to a crowd
Dm
With open boots, violin, banjo and a voice
Gm                  Bb          F              Gm
The exiled buskers are happy with their choice
