Dumb Things - Paul Kelly (Yeah!)

I think this is pretty close - sounds close to the CD.
It works for me anyway!

 Am  Em   Am  Em   Am  Em   Am C G D


Am      Em       Am     Em
Welcome stranger to the show
Am      Em      Am        C   G   D
I'm the one who should be ly-ing low
Am      Em          Am        Em
Saw the knives out, turned my back
Am        Em
Heard the train coming
Am         C  G   D
stayed out on the track

[ Tab from: ]
F             C
In the middle, in the middle
Em                 F
In the middle of a dream
  Am      Em       F         C
I lost my shirt, I pawned my rings
G         D            Am Em
I've done all the dumb things

Verse 2 - Same Progression as Verse 1

Caught the fever, heard the tune
Thought I loved her, hung my heart on the moon
Started howling, made no sense
Thought my friends would come to my defence

Verse 3 - Same Progression as Verse 1

And I get all your good advice
Don't stop me from going through all these things twice
I see the knives, out I turn my back
I hear the train coming, I stay out on the track

Verse 4

Am       Em     F      C
I melted wax to fix my wings
Am         Em    F      C
I threw my hat into the ring
Am             Em     F      C
I thought that I just had to sing
G    D            Am
I've done all the dumb things


Em  Am  Em  Am  Em  Am C G D
Ends with single strum of Am
