Текст песни c аккордами:
F Dm

A long time ago came a man on a track
C Bb F

walking thirty miles with a sack on his back
Bb C F C7

and he put down his load where he thought it was the best
Bb Gm7 Bb

he made a home in the wilderness
F Dm

he built a cabin and a winter store
C Am Bb F

and he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore
Bb C F C

and the other travellers came riding down the track
Bb F/A Gm7 Bb

and they never went further and they never went back
F Dm

then came the churches then came the schools
C Bb F

then came the lawyers then came the rules
Bb Csus4 C F C

then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
Bb Bb Dm

and the dirty old track was the telegraph road

F Dm

Then came the mines - then came the ore
C Bb Bb F

then there was the hard times then there was a war
Bb C F C7

telegraph sang a song about the world outside
Bb Gm7

telegraph road got so deep and so wide
Bb F

like a rolling river. . .

D D7/F# G

And my radio says tonight it's gonna freeze

people driving home from the factories

there's six lanes of traffic
Am Dm

three lanes moving slow. . .

C F Dm

I used to like to Go to work but they shut it down
C Bb

I've got a right to Go to work but there's no work here to be found
F Bb C F C7

yes and they say we're gonna have to pay what's owed
Bb Gm7

we're gonna have to reap from seed that's been sowed
Bb F Dm

and the birds up on the wires and the telegraph poles
C Bb

they can always fly away from this rain and this cold
C7 F

you can here them singing out their telegraph code
C Bb Dm

all the way down the telegraph road

C F Dm

You know I'd sooner forget but I remember those nights
C Bb

when life was just a bet on a race between the lights
F Bb C F C7

you had your head on my shoulder you had your hand in my hair
Bb Gm7

now you act a little colder like you don't seem to care
Bb F Dm

but believe in me baby and I'll take you away
C Bb

from out of this darkness and into the day

from these rivers of headlights these rivers of rain
F/A Bb C7 F C

from the anger that lives on the streets with these names
F/A Bb C7 F F/A

'cos I've run every red light on memory lane
Bb C7 F C F/A

I've seen desperation explode into flames
Bb C7 F C

and I don't want to see it again. . .

Am Dm

From all of these signs saying sorry but we're closed

all the way
