When A Small Town Dies Guitar Chords Troy Cassar-Daley

[Verse]
C                               F
Dad worked at the abattoirs and mum looked after home
C                               G7
And our fibro house was on the five-mile zone
C                       F
A little town with its good and its bad
              C     G          C
but we gave thanks for what we had
C                                           F
In our changing world they shut the meat works down
C 	  	  	  	      G7
I watched the gates close on the dusty ground
C 	  	  	  	       F
Dad was strong and silent with a tear in his eye
 	     C 	  	 G           C
he said I hate to see a small town die

[Chorus]
        F         C         F              C
When a small town dies you lay its soul to rest
         F              C             G7
All the livin? lovin? workin? will be gone now I guess
          F                   C       F             Am                F              G
Well it?d break my grandad?s heart if he were still alive to see this cherished old small
     C
town die

    C                 F                  C                            G7
For 3 generations our family?s been here through floods depressions laughter and tears
 C                        F                        C                  G         C
The pollies on the TV say everything is fine as we sit and watch out small town die

[Chorus]
Am                                 F             C
Well I caught the Brisbane Limited when I turned 18
      Am                     G7
cried all the way to Lismore missin? family
              C                        F
you know I?d give my right arm not to have to wave goodbye but I don?t
C             G          C
Want to see a small town die

[Outro]
              F           G          C
To see this cherished old small town die
