HUMPIN' MY BLUEY

Words and Music by John Williamson
 1986 EMUSIC PTY LTD

C     DM     G7     C    C     DM    G7    C

            C                          DM
(VERSE ONE) Wouldn't you like to ride along a country road,

     G7                C  AM  DM  G7
I'll give you a gentle push.

  C                   DM
I swell with pride to see the countryside

       G7                           C  AM  DM  G7
When I wander aimlessly through the bush.

       C                     DM
'Cause that's where I get my music

    G7                     C
And that's where I live my life.

        C          EM/B AM      C/G    G7 DM7/A Bbdim G7
You can call me a jolly swagman if you like.


(CHORUS 1)

C                  DM
Call it humpin' my bluey,

G7                    C  AM  DM  G7
  I reckon that's the style,

   C                    DM             G7               C
So why don't you climb aboard with me, along the road a while


(VERSE 2)
Been workin' in the big smoke, singin' at the pub,
I talk to people everywhere who still love the scrub
All longing for a piece of land and the eucalyptus air,
So why don't you come with me I'll take you there

(CHORUS 2)
Maybe we'll find a shack somewhere,
Plant an avocado tree
With fences only to deep out the cows,
Share a dream with me

(INSTRUMENTAL VERSE AND CHORUS 1)

(VERSE 3)
I've spent some time in your town, at every waterhole
'Cause I must drink a big brown land,
To quench a thirsty soul,
From W.A along the Nullabor,
And north to the black soil plains
Through cattle, sheep and hills of golden grain

(CHORUS 3)
The snow on Kosciusko,
My friends in the Territory
And springtime in Tasmania,
It all belongs to me

(INSTRUMENTAL VERSE AND CHORUS 1)
