Now Im Easy v1  Eric Bogle























D D7 G *
For nearly sixty years, I've been a cocky
D * A7 *
Of droughts and fires and floods, I've lived through plenty
Yes, this [D]country's dust and [D7]mud, has [G]seen my tears and [D]blood
* A7 G D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy___
D D7 G *
I married a fine girl when I was twenty
D * A7 *
But she died in giving birth when she was thirty
No [D]Flying Doctor [D7]then, just a [G]gentle old black [D]gin
* A7 G D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy___
D D7 G *
She left me with two sons and a daughter
D * A7 *
And a bone-dry farm whose soil cried out for water
So my [D]care was rough and [D7]ready, but they [G]grew up fine and [D]steady
* A7 G D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy___
D D7 G *
My daughter married young, and went her own way
D * A7 *
My sons lie buried by the Burma Railway
So on this [D]land I've made my [D7]own, I've [G]carried on a-[D]lone
* A7 G D
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy___
City folks, these days, despise the cocky
Say with subsidies and all, we've had it easy
But there's no drought or starving stock, on your sewered suburban block
But it's nearly over now, and now I'm easy
