                [Intro]

F

Bb                                                               F

All day mountains rose behind a veil of smoke from burning fields

Bb                                                          F       Dm    F

And road dust dyeing black skin bronze and the road rolling like a rough sea

C                                                  Dm          Bb

It's quiet now, just crickets and a dog fight somewhere in the far away

F

In my heart I hold your photograph

Gm                                                   F

And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

Bb                                                                   F

Hot breeze ran its fingers through the long grass of a thatched roof eave

Bb

They stuck me in the only chair they had while they cooked cassava

               F

And a luckless hen

C                                                        Dm

They asked for one well three lanterns and 200 litres of fuel and

         Bb

I said, "Who, me?"

F

And the time for planting's coming soon

Gm                                                   F

And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

[Instrumental]

 Bb        F

 Bb        F

C   Dm  Bb F

Gm F  Dm F

C

In the town neon flickers in the ruins

F     Gb     Db                      F

Seven crows swoop past the luscious moon

Dm                                      F

If I had wings like those there'd be no waiting

Bm                                            D     Eb        F

I'd come panting to your door and slide like smoke into your room

Bb                                                              F

All day the mountains rose behind a veil of smoke from burning fields

Bb                                                                 F

And road dust dyeing black skin bronze and the road rolling like a rough sea

C                                                       Dm          Bb

It's quiet now, just crickets and a dog fight somewhere in the far away

F

In my heart I hold your photograph

Gm                                                   F

And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

F

And the time for planting's coming soon

Gm                                                   F

And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

[Outro]

Gm   F
