NOW I'M EASY     Original by Eric Bogle 

    D            D7               G       
For nearly sixty years, I've been a cocky
   D                                                A7        
Of droughts and fires and floods, I've lived through plenty
          D                  D7       G               D
Yes, this country's dust and mud, has seen my tears and blood
         D           A7               G    D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy
 
 
  D              D7              G       
I married a fine girl when I was twenty
        D                                A7       
But she died in giving birth when she was thirty
   D             D7         G             D
No Flying Doctor then, just a gentle old black gin
         D           A7         G    D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy
 
    D                D7         G         
She left me with two sons and a daughter
      D                                    A7      
And a bone-dry farm whose soil cried out for water
      D                  D7           G                D
So my care was rough and ready, but they grew up fine and steady
                    A7               G    D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy
 
   D                D7                  G         
My daughter married young, and went her own way
   D                           A7       
My sons lie buried by the Burma Railway
           D                 D7    G            D
So on this land I've made my own, I've carried on a-lone
         D           A7     G    D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy
 
   D                D7            G
City folks, these days, despise the cocky
    D                                 A7
Say with subsidies and all, we've had it easy
             D                     D7            G
But there's no drought or starving stock, on your sewered suburban
D
Block
         D            A7              G    D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy 
 
ENDING: REPEAT FIRST VERSE
