Flame Trees chords

Cold Chisel


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 A 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 CHORUS: A B F#m And oh the flame trees'll blind a weary driver A 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 bullshit 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 CHORUS
