G
It's a lovely day in Ballarat
Em Gsus2 D
I'm kicking back thinking of you
G
I hear that you've been poorly
Em Gsus2 D
I am sorry that you're feeling blue
Bm
I know what it's like when you feel a little shitty
G A
You just wanna curl up and have an itty-bitty doona day
Bm
But a lot of people here really miss ya, Georgie
G A
They really think you oughta a just get on a plane (just get on a plane)
We all just want you to…
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Come home, Cardinal Pell, I know you're not feeling well
D A
And being crook ain't much fun, even so, we think you should come
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Home, Cardinal Pell, come down from your citadel
D A Gmaj7
It's just the right thing to do, they have a right to know what you knew
Gmaj7 D
Couldn't you see what was under your nose, Georgie
A
Back in '73 when you were living with Gerry?
Bm9 D
Is it true that you knew but you chose to ignore,
A
Or did you actively try to keep it buried?
G D/B A
And years later when survivors, despite their shame and their fear,
G D/A A
Stood up to tell their stories, you spent year after year
G A
Working hard to protect the church's assets?
Em7 A
I mean with all due respect dude, I think you're scum,
and I reckon you should…
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Come home, Cardinal Pell, we know you're not feeling well
D A
Perhaps you just need some sun, it's lovely here you should come
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Home, you pompous buffoon, and I suggest do it soon
D A
I hear the tolling of a bell, and it has a Pellian knell
Bm9 A D
I wanna be transparent here, George, I'm not the greatest fan of your religion
Bm9 A D
And I personally believe that those who cover up abuse should go to prison
G F#m
But your ethical hypocrisy, your intellectual vacuity
G A
And your arrogance don't bother me as much
G A
As the fact that you have turned out to be such a goddamn coward
Em
You're a coward Georgie
F#m
Come and face the music Georgie
G
You owe it to the victims Georgie
A
Come and face the music, the music, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
(notes only)
(d e f# g a g g f# e d)
If the Lord God omnipotent reigneth
A
He would take one look at you and say
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Go home, Cardinal Pell, I've got a nice spot in hell
D A
With your name on it and so, I suggest you toughen up and go
D Bm7 Gmaj7
Home, Cardinal Pell, I'm sure they'll make you feel well
D A
Come at the pub in Ballarat, they just want a beer and a chat
D Bm7 Gmaj7
(Come home Cardinal Pell) I know you're scared Georgie-Poo
D A
(Come home) They have a right to know what you do
Em
Your time is running out to atone, Georgie
F#m
I think the Lord is calling you home, Georgia
G
Perhaps he could forgive even you (he may forgive even you)
A
If you just let them know what you knew
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Oh, Cardinal Pell, my lawyer just rang me to tell me
D A
This song could get me in legal trouble
D Bm9 Gmaj7
Oh well, Cardinal Pell, if you don't feel compelled
D A
To come home by a sense of moral duty
Gsus2 A D
Perhaps you will come home and frickin' sue me
