On The Other Side Of The World-1947C
Fred Godfrey
 
G                         Em
Now I had a notion, while crossing the ocean,
         G                      Am
That the world was anything but small.
           D7                  G         Em
But when I landed here, it was soon very clear,   
           D         A7         D7
That its not so     big after  all,
                 G                          Em
Cos theres your own kith and kin there to welcome you in, 
       G                 Am
On the other side of the world,
                                            D7
Theres the same kindly folk, who crack the same kind of joke, 
                         G
On the other side of the world
    D7        G        G7                   C
And if   you  go for a stroll youll see a flag on the pole, and meet the  
A7                    D7
People who kept it unfurled
           G              D7               G                E7
And when a couples honey doving its the same old kind of loving, 
       A7      D7         G    D
On the other  side of the world

G                                          Em
Though were miles from our shore its like living next door, 
         G               Am
On the other side of the world,
          D7                              G            Em
Weve the same kind of names and play the same kind of games, 
        D      A7        D7
On the other side of the world
              G          G7                   C
And when the trouble is thick, like glue to - gether well stick, 
          A7                   D7
And well keep the old banner unfurled
          G           D7            G                 E7
So its a very happy meeting and I bring a special greeting, 
          A7    D7          G
From the other side of the world
