1st verse:
E                E
 Out where the river broke
    E                 E
The bloodwood and the desert oak
E                 E
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
 E             E
Steam in forty five degrees


Pre-chorus :
    E              E
The time has come
   Asus4            Asus4
To say fair's fair
   A             A
To pay the rent
   E               E
To pay our share
    E              E
The time has come
   Asus4            Asus4
A fact's a fact
     A             A
It belongs to them

Let's give it back

to pay the rent, now to pay our share

2nd verse:
E                     E
Four wheels scare the cockatoos
     E               E
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
    E              E
The western desert lives and breathes
   E            E
In forty five degrees

To pay our share

The time has come

A fact's a fact

Let's give it back
