CThere's a trade you all know well
G DIt's bringing cattle over
G COn every track, to the Gulf and back
G D GMen know the Queensland drover
[Chorus]
Em CPass the billy 'round, me boys
G DDon't let the pint pot stand there
G CFor tonight we'll drink the health
G D G D GOf every overlander

CThere are men from every land
G DFrom Spain and France and Flanders
G CWe're a well-mixed pack, both white and black
G D GMen call the overlanders

Em CPass the billy 'round, me boys
G DDon't let the pint pot stand there
G CFor tonight we'll drink the health

CI come from the northern plains
G DWhere the girls and grass are scanty
G CWhere the creeks run dry or ten foot high
G D GAnd it's either drought or plenty
[Chorus]
Em CPass the billy 'round, me boys
G DDon't let the pint pot stand there
G CFor tonight we'll drink the health

CWhen we've earned a spree in town
G DWe live like kings in clover
G CAnd a whole month's check goes down the neck
G D GOf many a Queensland drover
[Chorus]
Em CPass the billy 'round, me boys
G DDon't let the pint pot stand there
G CFor tonight we'll drink the health
G D G D GOf every overlander

CAs I pass along the road
G DThe children raise my dander
G CCrying, "Mother dear, take in the clothes
G D GHere comes an overlander"
[Chorus]
Em CPass the billy 'round, me boys
G DDon't let the pint pot stand there
G CFor tonight we'll drink the health
G D GOf every overlander
