LYRICS:

D   A        D  F#

F#       F#7      F#                      F#7
I believe   we're crossing a great ravine

      F#                     e
still yearning,   half-way a stranger

F#       F#7    F#              F#7
I believe    in our multiplicity

      F#                        e
still part-blind, no reason for anger

  A                D    G
  so why don't you tell me

  A             D    G
  why don't you tell me
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/midnight_oil/tell_me_the_truth_crd.html ]
  A             F#   e      B     F#        F#m
  why don't you tell me the truth about you

D   A          D  F#

F#     F#7 F#                            F#7
tyranny    crushing the young bird's seed

F#                                  e
hallowe'en's mate short fuse of the banker

          F#       F#7     F#                           F#7
I can see vaseline,    you smeared it across every scene

    F#                              e
the anchorman drowns in a sea of sensation

F#
I thought myself wise through all of these hopeless times

                                                   e
but I told myself, told myself, you've got to hold on

  A                D    G
  so why don't you tell me

  A             D    G
  why don't you tell me

  A             F#   e      B     F#        F#m
  why don't you tell me the truth about you

  A             D    G
  why don't you tell me

  A             D    G
  why don't you tell me

  A             F#   e      B     F#        F#m
  why don't you tell me the truth about you


D   A          D  A
    about you,    about you

[D  A  until end]
