4   5    5  5  5   5  5  4  4  4  4
A long time a-go came a man on a track

-4    -4  -4  -4   -4   -4  -4 -4   4  4   4
Walk-ing thir-ty miles with a sack on his back

4   4   4    4   5   -4    4   
And he put down his load where 

4    5      5 -4   4
he thought it was best

-5b 4   4   4   4   4  4  -4   -4  4
And he made a home in the wil-der-ness

4    5   5  5  -4 -4  5  -4  4   4
He built a ca-bin and a win-ter store

4   -4    -4    -4 -4   -4    -4  
And he ploughed up the ground by 

 5   -4    4   4
the cold lake shore

4    4   4   4  5   -4  -4   
And the oth-er tra-vel-lers 

 -4   5   5   -4   4    -4
came rid-ing down the track

4     4   4   4   4   4    4    
And they nev-er went fur-ther, 

 4    4   -4  -4 -4    4
and they nev-er went back

5      5   5    5    4    5    5   5    5
Then came the church-es then came the schools

-4    -4   -4 -4   4    -4   5    4   5
Then came the law-yers then came the rules

 4    -4   5    -4   4   -4   5     -5b  -5b   5
Then came the trains & the trucks with their load

4    4   4   4  4    4    4   4   4  4   4     4
And the dir-ty old track was the te-le-graph road


VERSE 2

Then came the mines - then came the ore
Then there was the hard times then there was a war
Telegraph sang a song about the world outside
Telegraph road got so deep and so wide
Like a rolling river. . .


VERSE 3


5    5 -5b 5 -4 -4  -4  -4    -4   -4  -4  5
And my ra-di-o says to-night it's gon-na freeze

4    4   4   4    4    4    4   5   4   4
Peo-ple driv-ing home from the fac-tor-ies

5        -4   -4  -4  -4   4
There's six lanes of traf-fic

4        4   4    4  4
Three lanes mov-ing slow. . .

                              
I used to like to go to work 

 4    4
but they shut it down


 5    5 -5b  5   -4 -4  -4 -4   
I’ve got a right to go to work 

-4   -4   -4   -4    4   4  4   4
But there's no work here to be found

              5   -4    -4 4   
Yes and they say we're gon-na 

 -4  5   6    5     -4
have to pay what's owed

5     -5b 5   -5b 4   -5b  -5b -5b   
We're gon-na have to reap from some 

  4     4     6    4
seed that's been sowed

 5   5    5    5  5  5    5    
And the birds up on the wires 

 5   5   5   5  5     5
and the tel-e-graph poles

5     5  5   -4  -4  -4 -4  -4    -4   
They can al-ways fly a-way from this 

 -4  4    4   4
rain and this cold

-4   5   -5b  -5b -5b  -5b -4    
You can hear them sing-ing out 

  -4   5  5   5    -4
their tel-e-graph code

5   -4   4   4    4   4  4   4    4
All the way down the tel-e-graph road

VERSE 4


You know I'd sooner forget but I remember 
those nights
When life was just a bet on a race between 
the lights
You had your head on my shoulder you 
had your hand in my hair
Now you act a little colder like you 
don't seem to care
But believe in me baby and I'll take you away
From out of this darkness and into the day

VERSE 5

-4     5   -5b -5b -5b -5b   -4     
From these riv-ers of head-lights 

  -4   5  -5b  5  -4
these riv-ers of rain

5     5  -5b -5b -5b  -5b  5   -4    
From the an-ger that lives on the 

   5    -5b     5   -4
streets with these names

  5   -5b -5b -5b -5b -5b 5   -4   5 -5b 6  5
'cos I've run ev-ry red light on mem-o-ry lane

 5   -5b  -5b -5b -5b 5  -4   6   -5b 5   -4
I've seen des-pe-ra-tion ex-plode in-to flames

-5b -5b -5b  5  -4   6  5  -5b -4
And I don't want to see it a-gain

4     5  5    5     5   -4   -4  -4  4  
From all of these signs say-ing sor-ry 

 4     4     4
but we're closed

4    4   4   4    4   4   4  4    4
All the way down the tel-e-graph road
