By the Gladstone pier

Prices hiked her face grew tight
       A chord diagramA minorAm                   A chord diagramD MajorD
And conversation died

Then a six-day shift in a filthy pit
      A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramA minorAm
The drag lines gouging coal
       A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramG+G                     A chord diagramD MajorD               A chord diagramE minorEm
The black dust gnaws at your lungs and pores

By the Gladstone Pier

             A chord diagramD MajorD                                 A chord diagramE minorEm
Casting pebbles at the passing waves

Plunge in brine cleanse his pride
   A chord diagramA minorAm             A chord diagramD MajorD
A chord diagramA augmentedA stronger man remains

Ached within his bones

And ships upon the tide

Bound for ports unknown

Soon he drank for comfort
                A chord diagramD MajorD                            A chord diagramE minorEm
She grew bitter in the weeks between
       A chord diagramC majorC                            A chord diagramG+G
The nights of beer and hollow cheer
       A chord diagramA minorAm                   A chord diagramD MajorD
And love became routine

 A chord diagramC majorC                                      A chord diagramG+G
They fought, she left him crying

In desperation on a lonely night

And Gladstone couples break that way
           A chord diagramC majorC                      A chord diagramG+G            A chord diagramA minorAm
Mutual blame and no regrets
       A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramD MajorD              A chord diagramE minorEm
And boomtown blues just fade to grey
         A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramA minorAm
And all that's left are debts she cried:

"I've got to leave this dirty old town

And break these chains and wash the pain
        A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramA minorAm
And put to sea again
A chord diagramC majorC                      A chord diagramG+G                 A chord diagramD MajorD                   A chord diagramE minorEm
Drained all my passion my anger and my fears
         A chord diagramC majorC                      A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramA minorAm
And sank them in a flagon
                           A chord diagramE minorEm
Under Gladstone pier"

A chord diagramC majorC                                                         A chord diagramG+G
She saw him through the Greyhound window
           A chord diagramD MajorD                                A chord diagramE MajorE
As the dawn glowed on the chrome
A chord diagramC majorC                                           A chord diagramG+G
Standing by the pier under sullen skies

Sea winds calling home

A chord diagramC majorC                              A chord diagramG+G
From surfers up to Townsville
               A chord diagramD MajorD                     A chord diagramE minorEm
Past the high-rise colonies
A chord diagramC majorC                               A chord diagramG+G
Fast food, cheap hotels
                A chord diagramA minorAm                                  A chord diagramD MajorD
Two more boom-town refugees
