Stewie Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia (957* d) RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia 15 Nov 20


With a nod to 'Jock Stewart', a belter from the author of 'Poison Train'.

SING US A SONG BOYS
(Mike O’Rourke)

Well come all decent people who suffer no shame
You can let the blame lie where it will
They have taken all from me except for my name
And they’ve turned that from good into ill

Chorus
So sing us a song boys and we’ll be away
It’s a long dry road we’re travelling today
Let the bottle go round, take it easy and free
No man is a stranger when he’s drinkin’ with me

Now if you ask where I’m goin’, me errand’s me own
It’s for me to say where to and when
And drinkin’ might stop me from thinkin’ too long
Where I live through my memories again

Chorus

And God knows what kind of a country we’ve made
There were men raised it up on their backs
And those fellows who handle the shears and the spade
Are still out on the wallaby track

Chorus

And where is the flag of the diggers brigade
Where are the riders out in the night
And where is the wild dog who’s never afraid
And who’ll never let go when he bites

Chorus
