[Intro]
G D  D7  G

[Verse]
GThe sweet scented wattle sheds perfume around
D7Delighting the bird and the bee
GAs I lie and take rest in me fern covered nest
A D G DIn the shade of the currajong tree
[Verse]
GHigh up in the air I can hear the refrain
D7Of a butcherbird piping his tune
GFor the spring in her glory has come back again
D7 G D D7 GTo the banks of the Reedy Lagoon
[Verse]
GI've carried me bluey for many a mile
D7Me boots are worn out at the toes
GAnd I'm dressing this season in different style
A D G DFrom what I did last year, god knows
[Verse]
GMe cooking utensils, I'm sorry to say
D7Consist of a knife and a spoon
GAnd I've dry bread and tea in a battered Jack Shay
D7 G D D7 GBy the banks of the Reedy Lagoon
[Verse]
GOh, where is young Frankie, how he could ride
D7And Johnnie the light-hearted boy?
GThey tell me that lately he's taken a bride
A D G DA benedict's life to enjoy
[Verse]
GAnd Mac, the big Scotsman, I once heard him say
D7He'd wrestled the famous Muldoon
GBut they're all gone away and it's lonely today
D7 G D D7 GBy the banks of the Reedy Lagoon
[Verse]
GAnd where is the lady I often caressed
D7The girl with the sad dreamy eyes?
GShe pillows her head on another man's breast
A D G DHe tells her the very same lies
[Verse]
GMy bed she would hardly be willing to share
D7Where I camp by the light of the moon
GBut it's little I care, for I'd never keep square
D7 G D D7 GBy the banks of the Reedy Lagoon
[Instrumental] G D D7 G G A D G D [Verse]
GHigh up in the air I can hear the refrain
D7Of a butcherbird piping his tune
GFor the spring in her glory has come back again
D7 G D D7 GTo the banks of the Reedy Lagoon
