[Intro]
C  D  G

[Verse]
D C GMe tent poles are rotten, me campfire's dead
C DAnd the possums they ramble in the trees overhead
G D C GI'm out on the wallaby, I'm humping me drum
C D G C D GAnd I come down the road where the sundowners come
[Verse]
D C GIt's north-west-by-west, over ranges afar
C DTo the plains where the cattle and the sheep stations are
G D C GWith the sky for me blanket and the earth for me bunk
C DAnd a calico bag for me damper and me junk
G D C GAnd it's scarcely a comrade me memory reveals
C D G C D GOh, the spirit still tingles in me toe and me heels
[Verse]
D C GNow me tent is all torn and me blankets are damp
C DAnd the fast-rising floodwater flows down to the camp
G D C GAnd the cold water rises in jets from the floor
C DAnd I lie in me bed and I listen to it roar
G D C GAnd I think of tomorrow how me footsteps will lag
C D G C D GAs I tramp beneath the weight of a rain-sodden swag
[Verse]
D C GBut the way of a swagman is mostly uphill
C DThough there's joy to be found on the wallaby still
G D C GWhen the day has gone down, with its tramp and its toil
C DAnd your campfire you build and your billy it can boil
G D C GAnd there's comfort and peace in the bowl of your clay
C D G C DOr the yarn of a mate, who is tramping your way
[Verse]
G D C GBut beware of the city, where it's poison for years
C DAnd beware of the dangers in drinking long beers
G D C GWhen a bushman gets bushed in the streets of the town
C DWhen he's lost all his friends and his cheque's are knocked down
G D C GWell, he's right 'til his pockets are empty and then
C D G C D GHe waltzes old bluey up the country again
[Verse]
D C GMe tent poles are rotten, me campfire's dead
C DAnd the possums they ramble in the trees overhead
G D C GI'm out on the wallaby, I'm humping me drum
C D G C D GAnd I come down the road where the sundowners come
