John Williamson  A flag of our own



(D)                    (G)       (D)
Ned Kelly came round to see me today,   
(D)                      (G)     (A)
 I guess I was dreaming - oh! oo oh
(D)                   (G)           (D)      (G)        (A)      (D)
Dumbfounded I couldn't think what to say     Oh.oh.oh.oh.oh.oh. 
(G)                    (D)
I beckoned him in, but he shook his head 
        (A)                     (D)
He said "I'm a bit grubby and a bit poorly bred 
      (G)                   (D)
I'd rather we yarned out the back in the shed 
      (A)                   (D)
I can leave m' boots on that way"

 
(G)    (D)   (A)   (D)


(D)                              (G)          (D)
Well, he took a stiff whisky and laid down his gun 
(D)                                   (G)
He said "I won't keep you long, cause I've got to run
      (D)                   (G)              (D)          (G)     (A)      (D)
Got to ride to the mountains before night is done"         Oh.oh.oh.oh.oh.oh. 
        (G)                         (D)
He said "word's got around 'bout the music you play 
    (A)                 (D)
You truly believe in the fair dinkum way 
         (G)                      (D)
That the bush must remain for our spirit to stay 
      (A)                     (D)
And we must have a flag of our own!" 


(G)    (D)     (A)    (D)


  (D)                           (G)          (D)
He said "I learned long ago when I was still young
                               (G)            (A) 
Like the lizard that spits and sticks out his tongue 
   (D)                       (G)    (D)                  (G)    (A)     (D)
Oh the way to get shot is to carry a gun                 Oh.oh.oh.oh.oh.oh. 


          (G)                     (D)
"There's a new world order!", the leaders all shout 
    (A)                        (D)
And everyone's frantic they're gonna miss out 
    (G)                                (D)
And the red, white and blues are still marching about 
     (A)                      (D)
Oh we must have a flag of our own" 


(G)   (D)   (A)   (D)


        (G)                  (D)
'Cause this is Australia and that's where we're from 
      (A)                      (D)
We're not Yankee side-kicks or second class Poms 
    (G)                          (D)
And tell the Frogs what they can do with their bomb 
     (A)                     (D)
Oh we must have a flag of our own!


       (G)                   (D)
'Cause this is Australia and that's where we're from 
      (A)                      (D)
We're not Yankee side-kicks or second class Poms 
    (G)                         (D)
And tell the Frogs what they can do with their bomb 
      (A)                    (D)
Oh we must have a flag of our own!



(G)   (D)   (A)   (D)
