NOT MUCH TO SHOW by (Keith Dixon/Slim Dusty)

capo 2nd fret

A 	 E 	 A

(E) Oh I sit in the dust at the (A)back of the chutes
It's so (E)quiet now the crowd has (A)gone
(A7)And I (D)look at the little which I (A)have to show
And I (F#7)wonder is it worth going on(E7)
(A)Two or three catching ropes and (E)one bucking rein
Even (E7)that too was left by a (A)mate
(A7)Could (D)use a new saddle but the (A)jeep needs repairs
And bank (F#7)accounts in such a helluva (A)state

Boots were good when i got them, but that was last year
Jeans are sweat-caked and showing the strain
Could use a good haircut but barbers want cash
Things are tough on the circuit again
Might make it ok if I draw the right stock
Second place would be better than none
It's been a while now since even a third came my way
And I heard a bloke say in the pub today, Oh he's done

When you're winning they love you oh that's when you're at the top
You're wined and you're dined and they cheer
Your fans write you letters your praises are sung
But lose and too quickly they'll jeer
Isn't much of a life though this rodeo game
Eating dust taking knocks and the rest
Not much profit to show for the busters I've had
But i've top scored at some of the best

The sweet fruits of victory I've often enjoyed
Best get used to the taste of defeat
For the profits of victory came quick but soon went
All were scattered on old easy street
So I sit in the dust at the back of the chutes
It's so quiet now the crowds have all gone
And I look at the little which I have to show
And I wonder is it worth going on
