-7-6 6 -7-6 6 -8 -8 -8 -8-7
Gather round people I`ll tell you a story
6 -7 -6 6 -7-6 6 -7-6 6 -7
An eight year long story of power and pride
-7 -6 6 -7-6 6 -8 -8 -8-8 -7 6
British Lord Veatey and Vincent Lingiarri were
-7-6 6 -7 6 -7-6 6 5-4
opposite men on opposite sides
-7-6 6 -7 6 -8-8 -8 -8-7
Vestey was fat with money and muscle
-7 -6 6 -7 -7 -7 -6 6 -7
Beef was his bus`ness broad was his door
-7 -6 6 -7 6 -8 -8-8 -8-7
Vincent was lean and spoke very little
6 -7 -6 6 -7 -7 6 -7 -6 6 5-4
he had no bank balance hard dirt was his floor
6 5 5 6 5 6 -8

From Little Things Big Things Grow

( the next verses follow the same notes )See on YouIubePaul Kelly

Gurindji were working for nothing but rations
Where once they had gathered the wealth of the land
Daily the pressure got tighter and tighter
Gurindju decided they must make a stand

They picked up their swags and started off walking
At Wattie Creek they sat themselves down
Now it don’t sound like much but it sure got tongues talking
Back at the homestead and then in the town

From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow

Vestey man said I’ll double your wages
Seven quid a week you’ll have in your hand
Vincent said uhuh we’re not talking about wages
We’re sitting right here till we get our land
Vestey man roared and Vestey man thundered
You don’t stand the chance of a cinder in snow
Vince said if we fall others are rising

From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow

Then Vincent Lingiarri boarded an aeroplane
Landed in Sydney, big city of lights
And daily he went round softly speaking his story
To all kinds of men from all walks of life

And Vincent sat down with big politicians
This affair they told him is a matter of state
Let us sort it out, your people are hungry
Vincent said no thanks, we know how to wait

From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow

Then Vincent Lingiarri returned in an aeroplane
Back to his country once more to sit down
And he told his people let the stars keep on turning
We have friends in the south, in the cities and towns

Eight years went by, eight long years of waiting
Till one day a tall stranger appeared in the land
And he came with lawyers and he came with great ceremony
And through Vincent’s fingers poured a handful of sand

From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow

That was the story of Vincent Lingairri
But this is the story of something much more
How power and privilege can not move a people
Who know where they stand and stand in the law

From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow
From little things big things grow
