verse 1

      F
I've been around the world
            Gm             C
A couple of times or maybe more
     Gm                    C
I've seen the sights, I've had delights
    F
On every foreign shore
     F
But when my mates all ask me
     Gm           C
The place that I adore
  Gm        C        F
I tell them right away      "what do we tell em?"



Chorus

                        Gm        C
Give me a home among the gumtrees
             Gm          C
With lots of plum trees
   F
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
  F
A clothesline out the back
 Gm               C
Verandah out the front
       Gm   C       F
And an old rocking chair 


verse 2     (same as verse 1)

You can see me in the kitchen
Cooking up a roast
Or Vegemite on toast
Just you and me, a cup of tea
And later on, we'll settle down
And go out on the porch
And watch the possums play 


chorus

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair 



verse 3

          A#
There's a Safeways up the corner
      F
And a Woolies down the street
      C
And a brand new place they've opened up
           F
Where they regulate the heat
        A#
But I'd trade them all tomorrow
      F
For a little bush retreat
          C     Gm    C
Where the kookaburras call          kookakakakakakkaakakkakaaa


chorus 

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair 


verse 4   ( up a step )

     G    
Some people like their houses
     Am         D
With fences all around ]
Am               D
Others live in mansions
    G
And some beneath the ground
    G
But me I like the bush you know
     Am                  D
With rabbits running round
      Am       D           G
And a pumpkin vine out the back 


chorus  (no guitar played in this chorus) (just singing)

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair 

                         Am        D
Give me a home among the gumtrees
              Am          D
With lots of plum trees
  G 
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
  G                 
A clothesline out the back  
 Am              D
Verandah out the front
       Am   D       G
And an old rocking chair
