4:4 Key:G

Intro without singing: But [G] when my mates all [Em] ask me of the [Am] place that I a[D]dore
I [Am] tell them [D] right a[G]way
[STOP]


I’ve[G] been around the [Em] world a couple of [Am] times or maybe [D] more
I’ve [Am] seen the sights and [D] had delights on [G] every foreign [D] shore
But [G] when my mates all [Em] ask me of the [Am] place that I a[D]dore
I [Am] tell them [D] right a[G]way [STOP]

[NC] Give me a home among the [Am] gum [D] trees with lots of [Am] plum [D] trees
A [G] sheep or two a k- [D] kangaroo a [G] clothes line out the [Em] back
Ver[Am]andah out the [D] front and an [Am] old [D] rocking [G] chair


You can [G] see me in the [Em] kitchen a -[Am] cooking up a [D] roast
Or [Am] vegemite on [D]toast just [G] you and me a [D] cup a tea
And [G] later on we’ll [Em] settle down and [Am]go out on the [D]porch
And [Am] watch the [D] possums [G] play [STOP]

[NC] Give me a home among the [Am] gum [D] trees with lots of [Am] plum [D] trees
A [G] sheep or two a k- [D] kangaroo a [G] clothes line out the [Em] back
Ver[Am]andah out the [D] front and an [Am] old [D] rocking [G] chair


There’s a [C] Safeway on the corner and a [G] Woolies down the street
And a [D] brand new place they’ve opened up where they [G] regulate the [G7] heat
But I’d [C] trade them all tomorrow for a [G] little bush retreat
Where the [D] kookaburras [G] call kook kook kook ka ka ka

[NC] Give me a home among the [Am] gum [D] trees with lots of [Am] plum [D] trees
A [G] sheep or two a k- [D] kangaroo a [G] clothes line out the [Em] back
Ver[Am]andah out the [D] front and an [Am] old [D] rocking [G] chair


Some [G] people like their [Em] houses built with [Am] fences all a[D]round
[Am] Others live in [D] mansions and [G] some beneath the [D] ground
But [G] me I love the [Em] bush you know with [Am] rabbits runnin’ [D] round
And a [Am] pumpkin [D] vine out the [G] back [STOP]

[NC] Give me a home among the [Am] gum [D] trees with lots of [Am] plum [D] trees
A [G] sheep or two a k- [D] kangaroo a [G] clothes line out the [Em] back
Ver[Am]andah out the [D] front and an [Am] old [D] rocking [G] chair
