FLAME TREES by Cold Chisel

An old Aussie favourite by ex-mega band Cold Chisel.  No big surprises
here, just a great tune.  Enjoy.

Intro:    A    E    A    E

A                                       E
The kids are driving and Saturday afternoon just passed me by
A                    E
I'm just savouring familiar sights
A                      E
We shared some history, this town and I
A            B                G#m               Av
And I can't stop that long-forgotten feeling of her
A                  B             E
In time to book a room and stay tonight

Number 1 is to find some friends and say "you're doing well --
After all this time you boys look just the same"
Number 2 is the Happy Hour at one of two hotels
And settle in to play "Do you remember so-and-so"
Number 3 is never say her name

A              B             F#m
And oh the flame trees'll blind a weary driver
Av                B                E
And there's nothing that can set fire to this town
A                 B         C#m                E
There's no change, there's no pace, everything within its place,
A          B                    E
Just makes it harder to believe that she won't be around

A                              E
Oh, who needs that sentimental bullsh*t anyway
A                                   E
It takes more than just a memory to make me cry
A                                   E
And I'm happy just to sit here at a table with old friends
A                                                 E
And see which one of us can tell the biggest lies
A                                        E
And there's a girl, she's fallin' in love near where the pianola stands
A                                       E
With a young local factory auto worker -- just holdin' hands
A                G#m             B
And I'm wondering if he'll go or if he'll stay
C         G              C                 G            D    E
Do you remember, nothing stopped us on the field in our day
