Across The Western Plains Misc. Traditional
"Across the Western Plains" -Traditional Australian submitted by Mike Hiltonwood firstname.lastname@example.org 4/4 (2/4 ??) Chorus: G C G Its all for me grog, me jolly, jolly grog D7 Its all for me beer and tobacco G C G 'cos I spent all my tin in the shanty drinking gin D7 G Now across the Western Plains I must wand--er ( same chords for chorus and verses ) Verses: I'm stiff and stony broke and I've parted with my smoke And the sky is looking black as thunder And the boss ofthe shanty too, for I haven't got a sou Thats how they treat you when you're down and under I'm crook in the head, for I haven't been to bed Since I first touched this shanty with my plunder I see centipedes and snakes, and I'm full of achces and shakes So I'd better make a push out over yonder Repentance brings reproof, so I sadly pad the hoof All day I see the mirage of the trees But it'll all have an end when I reach the river bend And listen to the sighing of the breeze
