       C      G            C
Let me wander north to the homestead
    F                       C
way out further on there to roam
     F                      C    Am       
by a gully in flood let me linger
         C       D7           G                   
when the summery sunshine has flown
      C               G         C              
Where the logs tangle up on the creek bed
        F                            C                          
and the clouds veil the old northern sky
        F                         C        Am                 
and the cattle move back from the lowlands
         C             G       C                  
when the rain tumbles down in July
 
     C             G              C          
The settlers with sad hearts are watching
     F                           C                   
the rise of the stream from the dawn
       F                        C        Am                       
their best crops are always in floodreach
       C         D7               G     
if it rises much more they'll be gone
     C             G             C         
The cattle string out along the fences
        F                          C                      
as the breeze from the south races by
         F                           C      Am             
and the limbs from the old gums are falling
          C            G       C                   
when the rain tumbles down in July 

     C            G           C
The old sleeping gums by the river
 F                       C       
awaken to herds straying by
          F                           C       Am                 
from the flats where the fences have vanished
        C            D7        G              
as the storm clouds gather on high
      C            G           C               
The wheels of the wagons stop turning
         F                            C                        
and the stock horse is turned out to stray
         F                      C     Am               
and the old station dogs are a-dozing
        D            D7               G               
on the husks in the barn through the day

     C            G           C 
The drover draws rein by the river
           F                           C                       
it's been years since he's seen it so high
     F                      C       Am                 
and that's just a story of homeward
          C            G       C F C                 
when the rain tumbles down in July

i think he means add the F# to the D chord. which is a D chord with your thumb wrapped over onto the Low E string 2nd fret.
