LYRICS:

INTRO

D Dmaj7 D

        E
by the time the luminous descent of the bright star unfolds

      E                                       D Dmaj7 D
and tablets of strangelove are shattered and bruised
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/midnight_oil/drums_of_heaven_tab.html ]
       E
by the time the oleander is falling from bloom

      E                              D Dmaj7 D
and tears of the crocodile water the sun

         C#m              B
  by the time you make up your mind

C#m           A
  if ever you do

C#m
  I hear the drums of heaven too

         C#m              B
  by the time you make up your mind

E             F#
  if ever you do

A             B              C#m
  I hear the drums of heaven too


E  B      G  D      A  E      G

INTRO

       E
by the time paradise alley is littered with rust

        E                             D Dmaj7 D
and the arc of dayglo is curtained in gloom

       E
by the time kidney bone cities are crumbling to dust

        E                               D Dmaj7 D
and the empires and all of the emirated burn

         C#m              B
  by the time you make up your mind

C#m           A
  if ever you do

C#m
  I hear the drums of heaven too

         C#m              B
  by the time you make up your mind

E             F#
  remember this too

A             B              C#m
  I hear the drums of heaven too

A             B              C#m
  I hear the drums of heaven too

E  B
      ice on the mountain

G  D
     wind and the dust storm

A  E
    sails in the desert

G  D
    it's old and exploding

E  B
    seers and the prophets

G  D
    dramas of heaven

A  E
     attention groud control,

G        D
there's someone coming down, I don't know who

etc...

INTRO

CHORUS until end.
