CAPO 4  (I'm pretty sure that's how Slim played it)

Intro Chords: D C G D


 D                 
I'm a ringer from the top end
                          A
Where ya gotta know your job

And what you're doin' each day

On 2 million acres you bet
                      D
Ya have to earn your pay
       
If ya wanna take it on
                                      G       Em
There's one thing that shouldn't be forgotten
 G                 A
Nobody can do the job 
                        D
Like a ringer from the top end


 A                      
Out on the fence line swallowing dust
 E 
Blood on my hands from the barb
 
Hoping that rogue bull won't see the hole
 A 
Before they get him in the yard
       D                           
But I get a funny feeling in the middle of my back
 G                               Em
Sure enough he's coming like a train down the track
 G                              A
That's when nobody else moves faster
                             D
Than the springer from the top end


 D
I'm a ringer from the top end 
                      A
Where ya gotta muster 3 thousand head in a day
                                                D
Move 'em to the yards and water them at end of day

It's not the sort of job you'd take
                          G      Em
If you're looking for a soft one
 G                             A
But ya take a kinda pride in saying 
                       D
I'm a ringer from the top end


 A                              
Well I roll out my swag 'neath the boab tree
 E
And then I'm out like a light

Dreaming about those girls in town
 A
Next thing it's broad daylight
 D
No time to dream of what might have been
            G                         Em
I'm in a dirty bull catcher with the mustering team
 G                            A
I better keep my mind on the job
                               D
'Cause I'm a ringer from the top end

 G                        A
And nobody does the job better
                         D
Than a ringer from the top end
