RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS
INTRO: 	 G 	 D7 	 G
1
G
IíVE HAD SOME FANCY MENUES
    A7
AT CAFES AND AT PUBS
 	 D7
BUT THE BEST FEED I HAVE EATEN
     G
HAS BEEN OUT IN THE SCRUB

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR FANCY DISHES
    A7 	 
OF EGG AND BACON ROLLS
 	 D7 	 
BUT THE FEED THAT I LOVE BEST OF ALL
 	  	        G
ARE RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS


CHORUS 1
        D
WHEN A BEAST IS KILLED AT SUNDOWN
      A
IN DROVERS STYLE YOU SEE
     A7
THE COOK CALLS OUT TO ALL THE BOYS
 	  	        D
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR TEA

A CURRY, OR SOME DAMPER
    G
OR SALT BEEF CASSEROLE
     A7 	 
BUT THEY PREFER THEIR FAVíRITE
 	  	     D 	 
OF RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS


2
IN THE MUSTíRING CAMPS OF QUEENSLAND
WHEN THEY DECIDE TO KILL
THEY ALWAYS TAKE THE RIB BONES BACK
TO THE CAMP TO GRILL
AND IF YOU THINK IíM BRAGGIN
ASK A STOCKMAN YOUNG OR OLD
THE BEST FEED THEY HAVE EATEN
THEYíLL SAY RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS

CHORUS 2
AND WHEN YOUíRE WATCHING CATTLE
ON A FREEZING WINTERíS NIGHT
YOU SEE AGAIN THOSE RIB BONES
OH WHAT A LOVELY SIGHT
YOUR MOUTH BEGINS TO WATER
BUT DRIES UP WHEN YOUíRE TOLD
SALT JUNK IS ALL THATíS LEFT TO EAT
NO RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS

3
A NEW CHUM AT THE STATION
HADNíT TRIED THE RIBS BEFORE
WE DROPPED A BEAST AT EVENING
BUT THE BOYS WERE RATHER SORE
THEY ALL TOOK TO THE NEW CHUM
AND THEY CURSED HIS HUNGRY SOUL
BOTH SIDES OF BEEF POLISHED OFF
WHEN COOKED UPON THE COALS

CHORUS 3

A PIECE OF SALTED BRISKET
IS ALWAYS GOOD TO CHEW
OR STEAK FROM OFF THE SHOULDER
WITH A SLICE OF DAMPER TOO
RUMP STEAK IS NICE AND TENDER
BUT THE UNDERCUT IS PRIME
I LOVE THEM ALL BUT GIVE TO ME
THOSE RIB BONES EVíRY TIME

4
IíVE HAD SOME FANCY MENUES
AT CAFES AND AT PUBS
BUT THE BEST FEED I HAVE EATEN
HAS BEEN OUT IN THE SCRUB
YOU CAN HAVE YOUR FANCY DISHES
OF EGG AND BACON ROLLS
BUT THE FEED THAT I LOVE BEST OF ALL
ARE RIBS COOKED ON THE COALS

CODA: G 	 D7 	 G
