The Diamintina Drover 


This can also be played by fingerpick if you want but I've got no idea what it is, personally I like using the chords.


~Intro~
C G Am
C G Am

Verse 1
  C             G              Am
The faces in the photograph have faded
      C                                   Am
And I can't believe he looks so much like me
          Dm             E
For it's been ten years today
         Dm                 Am
Since I left for Old Cork Station
       Dm          C         G         Am
Sayin' I won't be back till the drovin's done

B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Station
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Verse 2
        C               G                Am
Well it seems like the sun comes up each mornin'
      C                      Am
Sets me up and takes it all away
        Dm               E
For the dreaming by the light
        Dm          Am
Of the camp fire at night
  Dm          C        G     Am
Ends with the burning by the day

B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm            C            G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Instrumental
C G Am C G Am

Verse 3
     C                             G                  Am
Sometimes I think I'll settle back in Sydney
            C                                                      Am
But it's been so long it's hard to change my mind
          Dm                       E
For the cattle trail goes on and on
            Dm               Am
And the fences roll forever
       Dm            C            G        Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done
