50 Tons On Your Back chords

Travis Sinclair

Key: 

D A Well I was high in the saddle at Tarcutta, D When a boy in blue pulled me over for a chat. A He said 'I think you need a little air in those tyres'. G A D I said 'You would too with a 50 ton load on your back'. A D Well I was barreling down ol' Highway 31, A D Admiring the scenery in the hot sun. G D Pulled over 'cross the Murray to fuel up, E7 A Have a shower and throw some coffee in my cup. D Then wait for the midnight rush, A D You know a boy loves to smell that charcoal dust. G D Something appeared from nowhere out behind, A D It was a flash of a red and blue light. D A Well I was high in the saddle at Tarcutta, D When a boy in blue pulled me over for a chat. A He said 'I think you need a little air in those tyres'. G A D I said 'You would too with a 50 ton load on your back'. A D Well the coppers eyes opened wider than Ayres Rock, A D He grabbed me by the arm and did his block. G D When I asked him where he was taking me, A D He said 'Son you've got a date with destiny'. D A Well I was high in the saddle at Tarcutta, D When a boy in blue pulled me over for a chat. A He said 'I think you need a little air in those tyres'. G A D I said 'You would too with a 50 ton load on your back'. G D A D G D E7 A INSTRUMENTAL D I did my time in cell block 21, A D The copper said 'I hope you've learned your lesson son'. Well I thought about it for a while, and this is what I told him: G D 'Next time I'm overweight I won't push my luck, A D I'll remember to pump those bloody tyres up'. D A Well I was high in the saddle at Tarcutta, D When a boy in blue pulled me over for a chat. A He said 'I think you need a little air in those tyres'. G A D I said 'You would too with a 50 ton load on your back'. D A G A D Well I was high in the saddle at Tarcutta.
