[G D A] x 4

D                      G
They built this house from tall timber
D                    A
Cut it down in the mountain air
D               G 
Building dreams in the city
D                       A
Kept on going till the hills were bare
D           G     
Came along with their axes
D                          G
Brought their trucks and chainsaws too
D                          A
And they cut down all the tall tall timber
G               A          A2
Tall timber for me and you

D                     G   
She was a young girl she was a hero
D                       A
Stood on the stage the people cheered
D                        G            
But the critics cut her down to zero
D                           A
Because she sang the words that they all feared
D               G 
And they came with their axes
D                              G
They brought their knives and opinions too
D                          A
And they cut her down like tall tall timber
G                   A
Tall timber in the mountain dew

CHORUS
G2           D2       A2  
Please don't cut down the tall timber
G2      D2        A2
Let it grow tall straight and true
G2       D2           A2 
In this world we need tall tall timber
G2    D2         A2  
Tall timber like me and you

D                   G
He was a young man with a dream
D                A 
To bring freedom to his land
D                 G
Shared his voice with his brothers
D                            A
In those chinese streets he made a stand
D              G
And they came with their soldiors
D                             G
They brought their tanks and machine guns too
D                        A
And the cut down all the tall tall timber
G                A
Tall timber like me and you

The Redgum and the Kauri

SOLO

D                G
Now the sun's so strong it burns my eyes
D                    A
The air's so bad that I can't breath
D                       G
The winter's warmer the summer's hotter
D                   A
I drive for miles I don't see trees
D             G
And they came with their axes
D                              G
They brought their knives and chainsaws too
D                         A
And they cut down all the tall tall timber
G                  A
Tall timber in the mountain dew
