*Play Riff 1. Four times before Talking starts

*Play Riff 1. Eight times during Talking

No conversation as you go
There's so much space the heat moves you
Terracotta homes, backyard barbeque and eucalyptus smell
It's fine on the clothes line
It's fast food and slow life and red roof
My silence, comic interruptions
Surely there's some relief from atomic art

*These Chords are played (on a an acoustic in the album wersion)
throughout Petes Rant:

Am  FM9		C   G/B
Dm  FM9		Dm  G/B

And the fragile state of world events
With clowns who love the kings and power and the mutant media babes
Wanking on dreams and fashions and toilet paper flowers
Don't talk to me in this backyard - it's clandestine, it's nuclear
Smell of space and now forever I wanna go
Straight down the exit eight mile attraction
U-turn is up and the time clock sings lets go

    Dm  F   Am   C       Dm  F   Am   C
Lucky!!     	    Country!!
	      Dm      F        Am   C	       Dm  F   Am   C
Where the geckos are paid to live in the sun
            Dm  F   Am   C      Dm  F   Am   C
(ah on) Lucky!!(on, and on)Country!!
            Dm        F     Am      C        Dm  F   Am   C
There's a ribbon of road and a mile to spare

End:
Dm  F   Am   C 		Dm  F   Am   C
Luc-ky  Coun-try	Luc-ky  Coun-try

Dm  F   Am   C 		Dm  F   Am   C
Luc-ky  Coun-try	Luc-ky  Coun-try

Dm  F   Am   C 		Dm  F   Am   C
			Luc-ky  Coun-try

Dm  F   Am   C 		Dm  F   Am   C
			Luc-ky  Coun-try

Dm  F   Am   C 		Dm  F   Am   C
Luc-ky  Coun-try	Luc-ky  Coun-try
