PAINT ME A WHEELBARROW
Words and Music by John Williamson
© 1986 EMUSIC PTY LTD


AM                    G      AM
Push a wheelbarrow to Broken Hill,

AM                   G         AM
Test your endurance, test your skill,

          C                  G         AM
Where the sun is hot and the hills are slow.

AM        G      AM
Ten grand to the winners;


AM                    G      AM
Push a wheelbarrow to Broken Hill,

AM                   G         AM
Test your endurance, test your skill.

       C                      G       AM
With a pick and shovel and an old crowbar

      AM            G       AM
And a billy wrapped up in a blanket.

(CHORUS)
C                        G7       C
Put your men through the toughest test,

F                    G7  C
Half a dozen of the very best.

    F               G7       AM
The team to beat is from the west.



From Burra through to Broken Hill,
You've gotta be fit or the heat will kill.
The man with the flag and the paint on his shirt,
Loves the town like his mother.

Push your wheelbarrow to Broken Hill,
Test your endurance, test your skill.
Quicker changes up the rise,
Keep the driver sober.

(SECOND CHORUS)
Paint me a purple billabong,
Where the limbs are hollow but the roots are strong,
Where the world is peaceful all day long,

    F                 G7   C
oh, Paint me a purple billabong,

          F         C              G7        C
Where the limbs are hollow but the roots are strong,

          F                 G7      AM
Where the world is peaceful all day long.



Paint this country how it feels,
A rusty roof, a horse on wheels.
Shirts and singlets on the line,
Little chance of rain.

Push a wheelbarrow to Broken Hill,
Test your endurance, test your skill
It's gonna get harder every year… stiffer competition

(THIRD CHORUS)
Paint me a pub, it'll suit me fine,
A bucket of yabbies and a barrel of wine,
Paint me a Mallee tree down by the mine.
 
Oh paint me a pub, it'll suit me fine,
A bucket of yabbies and a barrel of wine,
Paint me a wheelbarrow over the line.
