COPPED THE LOT by (Stan Coster)

1.

(D) I was born and raised in a drover's camp
On the great stock routes out (A7)west
My dad was known as Bushman
Who could hold his own with the (D)best
But age caught up and his heart gave out
One night when the cattle (A7)jumped
So we wrapped his remains in his swag and dug
His grave be a sandlewood (D)stump (D7)

chorus:

Most (G)blokes in life get their (D)share of strife
But (A7)I copped the flamin' (D)lot
Now my (G)old blue b***h has the (D)brigalow itch
And my (A7)horse has the Barcoo (D)rot

2.
Now a thousand head of Wookatook stores
From a run near Timber creek
Is a big headache for the best of men
Especially the first few weeks
Well, the drovin' plant was willed to me
And the contract for the job
And the seven myall black boys
Wer as wild as the travellin' mob

chorus:

Most (G)blokes in life get their (D)share of strife
But (A7)I copped the flamin' (D)lot
Now my (G)old blue b***h has the (D)brigalow itch
And my (A7)horse has the Barcoo (D)rot

3.
Well the black boys wouldn't take watch that night
Since the old feller boss was dead
His spirit bin ride longa camp all night
On a big white horse they said
So I watched all night and I rode all day
And the herd was getting small
Then they rushed one night in a mulga scrub
Now there's no herd left at all

chorus:

Most (G)blokes in life get their (D)share of strife
But (A7)I copped the flamin' (D)lot
Now my (G)old blue b***h has the (D)brigalow itch
And my (A7)horse has the Barcoo (D)rot

4.
Well I can't go back to my old home town
I dare not show my face
I know old dad would turn in his grave
If he learnt of my disgrace
I've walked the soles off my riding boots
And my beard and hair is long
I've joined with travellin' hippie band
And found where I belong

Most (G)blokes in life get their (D)share of strife
But (A7)I copped the flamin' (D)lot
Now my (G)old blue b***h has the (D)brigalow itch
And my (A7)horse has the Barcoo (D)rot

Most (G)blokes in life get their (D)share of strife
But (A7)I copped the flamin' (D)lot
Now my (G)old blue b***h has the (D)brigalow itch
And my (A7)horse has the Barcoo (D)rot
