 My land by the water , my land by the waterside

Jiir, milgin-ngurru

Feeding on the rising tide

 BmD
 High above the mangrove down Burrgoogoon hunting  for my family
 BmD
 You know the tide right , just look at the moon
 BmD
 Yellow wattle flower smell 'em, tell 'em that the mullet must be fat today
 BmA
 Sliding in, glide on the wind of the late afternoon  --> CHORUS

 BmD
 Local fisherman gotta bagful, gotta big gang plenty mouth to feed
 BmD
 Man with the badge say hey you you're breaking the rules
 Bm
 Don't care what your rule is you know thousand politicians couldn't
 D
change my ways
 BmA
 My law is the sea and pull of the sun and the moon

 D
 My land by the water , my land by the waterside

Jiir, milgin-ngurru

Feeding on the rising tide
