The quall

G / Em / C / D

VERSE
Australian logging was out of control
And the forests were taking the toll
He climbed right up to the highest tree
And said "you take it down then you're taking down me"

He travelled all across the land
Took the fight into his own hands
He formed a powerful green faction
And waged a war of direct action

CHORUS
You are, like a lone range liberator
You are, like something from a science movie
You are, a soul inspired crusader
You are, a nature-saving raider

VERSE
But winning battles wasn't winning the war
And nobody was there keeping the score
He saw that if he was going to get them to stop
He had to take his fight to the very top

He studied law and learnt how the lawyers talk
Teamed up with a logger to sue the state
To make them see that they weren't above the law
And won his case in the supreme court

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

MIDDLE (quiet)
Em
It didn't run in the media at all
G
Nobody's heard of the mighty Quall
Em
He went away quietly to live in the woods
D
And he's still in there using his powers for good

CHORUS OUTRO (quiet)
You are x4
