  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...

     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

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
                     C                F             C
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
