Intro 
G  C  Em  D 

verse 1 
G                                                         C 
When will you learn that the more that you take means the less that you have at the end of the day 
Em 
Stillness of the mind is so hard to embrace 
D 
Freedom of the heart is what we crave 
       G 
And we sit by the river with a cup of tea 
          C 
Watch the movement of the tide in the gentle breeze 
Em 
Pelican drifting slowly looking for a feed 
        C 
Like Mr Percival the storm boy, you to me 
G 
Kookaburra calls just like he knows 
      C 
And I call right back "Yes I'm home" 
     Em 
He's been with me 

He's watched me grow 
              D 
Through those rainy days and those rocky roads 

        G 
And now everybody smiles in the setting sun 
    C 
And sighs with contentment when the day is done 
Em 
Hand in hand 

With the one you love 
        D 
Feeling blessed by the magic of the moon above 
        G 
And we sing 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 

verse 2 
     G 
It's time for fire 

Smoke and leaves 
    C 
The only mosquito repellent we need 
    Em 
Pay respect to the North the South the West and the East 
     D 
Pay respect to the spirit of this whole country 
G 
Freedom in the hearts of the young and brave 
         C 
Who know little of the journey of the diggers who gave 
      Em 
Their lives to the service and the government gains 
        D 
So that we could dance together on this beautiful day 

        G 
And now everybody smiles in the setting sun 
    C 
And sighs with contentment when the day is done 
Em 
Hand in hand 

With the one you love 
        D 
Feeling blessed by the magic of the moon above 
        G 
And we sing 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 

Bridge 
G 
Ohh 
Em 
Ohh 
D 
Aye 
        G 
Now the winter seeps into my bones 
      C 
And I hear the call from the North 
            Em 
Yeah I will go 
            D 
Yeah I will go 
 
        G 
And now everybody smiles in the setting sun 
    C 
And sighs with contentment when the day is done 
Em 
Hand in hand 

With the one you love 
        D 
Feeling blessed by the magic of the moon above 
        G 
And we sing... 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world 
       C              D 
Sha la la la la la la lah 
           Em             D         G 
We're just living in this beautiful world
