HOME AMOUNG THE GUMTREES

D7 	 G 	  	 Em 	  	 Am 	 D7
I've been around the world a couple of times, or maybe 
more, 
 	 Am 	  	     D7 	  	      G 	  	   D7
I've seen the sights, I've had delights on every foreign shore, 
     G 	  	        Em 	   Am 	  	  	 D7  	  	 
but when my mates all ask me the place that I adore, 
   Am 	      D7 	     G 	 
I tell them right away. 

G 	       Em 	   Am 	     D7
Give me a home among the gum trees, 
 	       Am 	     G 	  	  	 D7
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo. 
     G 	  	  	 Em 	 Am 	  	 D7 	 
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front, 
 	 Am   D7 	  	 G
and an old rocking chair. 


You can see me in the kitchen cooking up a roast, 
or Vegemite on toast, just you and me, a cup of tea. 
And later on we'll settle down and mull up on the porch, 
and watch the possums play. 

G 	       Em 	   Am 	     D7
Give me a home among the gum trees, 
 	       Am 	     G 	  	  	 D7
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo. 
     G 	  	  	 Em 	 Am 	  	 D7 	 
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front, 
 	 Am   D7 	  	 G
and an old rocking chair. 

 	     C 	  	  	  	 G
There's a Safeway up the corner, and a Wooly’s down the street, 
    D7 	  	  	  	  	  	 G 	 
a brand new place theyve opened up where they regulate the heat, 
G7 	  C 	  	  	  	 G
but I'd trade them all tomorrow for a simple bush retreat 
 	     D7
where the kookaburras call. 


G 	       Em 	   Am 	     D7
Give me a home among the gum trees, 
 	       Am 	     G 	  	  	 D7
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo. 
     G 	  	  	 Em 	 Am 	  	 D7 	 
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front, 
 	 Am   D7 	  	 G
and an old rocking chair. 


Some people like their houses with fences all around, 
others live in mansions, and some beneath the ground. 
But Me, I like the bush, you know with rabbits running 'round, 
and a pumpkin vine out the back. 


G 	       Em 	   Am 	     D7
Give me a home among the gum trees, 
 	       Am 	     G 	  	  	 D7
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo. 
     G 	  	  	 Em 	 Am 	  	 D7 	 
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front, 
 	 Am   D7 	  	 G
and an old rocking chair. 

G 	       Em 	   Am 	     D7
Give me a home among the gum trees, 
 	       Am 	     G 	  	  	 D7
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo. 
     G 	  	  	 Em 	 Am 	  	 D7 	 
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front, 
 	 Am   D7 	  	 G 	 C 	 G 	 D7 	 G
and an old rocking chair.
