PRETTIEST GIRL IN THE KIMBERLEY
Words and Music by John Williamson


C                            F C
Where is the glory when war is won
    Em                      F         G
A man hits the bottle and belts his son
      Am      G       F      C
So I ran away to the Cattle Run
         Em         G         F       C
Where I learned to fight and swallow rum 
       Am         G      F        C  
And I learned to go barefoot you see
F            C   Dm  G
Just like an Aborigine
     Am           G        F        C
For one of their tribe belonged to me
       F         C           G     C
The Prettiest Girl in the Kimberley 

Am  G  F  C    F  C  Dm  G    Am  G  F  C    F  C  G  C

C                            F C
But I could not marry the girl I adore
    Em                 F         G
Black and white was against the law
    Am      G        F      C
They chain you up to a Boab Tree
F            C   Dm  G
For kissing an Aborigine 

C                         F       C
But a ringer's heart is immune to pain
    Em                   F         G
A bull rips your leg and you carry on
    Am            G        F      C
You clench your teeth and you cry alone
F            C                   Dm  G
And ride for a week till the poison's gone 

C                     F       C
But me and my dog we're not alone
    Em                         F         G
The Pension provides us with beef and a bone
    Am            G          F      C
I've given up drifting and drinking rum
F            C       Dm        G
We're up and about before the sun 


C                         F       C
And I can still quarter a beast in a dash
    Em                           F         G
Have your freezer full of spare ribs in a flash
    Am            G        F      C
And I still dream of the one for me
F            C               Dm  G
The Prettiest Girl in the Kimberley 



    Am      G            F       C
Yes I still dream of the one for me

    F         C           G        C
The Prettiest Girl in the Kimberley
