Diamantina Drover  John Williamson
























[C]  [G]  [Am]                                 
Verse 1
Th[C]e faces in the[G] photograph hav[Am]e faded
And I [C]can't believe he looks so much like [Am]me
For it's b[Dm]een ten years t[E]oday
Since I l[Dm]eft for Old Cork St[Am]ation
Sayin' [Dm]I won't be b[C]ack till t[G]he drovin'[Am]s done

Chorus
For the r[C]ain never fa[G]lls on the d[Am]usty Diamantina
And a dro[C]ver finds it hard to change his m[Am]ind
For the y[Dm]ears have surely [E]gone
Like the d[Dm]rays from Old Cork [Am]Station
And I[Dm] won't be ba[C]ck till th[G]e drovin's[Am] done

Verse 2
Well it [C]seems like the s[G]un comes up each [Am]mornin'
Sets m[C]e up and takes it all a[Am]way
For the [Dm]dreaming by the l[E]ight
Of the c[Dm]amp fire at [Am]night
En[Dm]ds with the [C]burning b[G]y the [Am]day

Chorus
For the r[C]ain never fa[G]lls on the d[Am]usty Diamantina
And a dro[C]ver finds it hard to change his m[Am]ind
For the y[Dm]ears have surely [E]gone
Like the d[Dm]rays from Old Cork [Am]Sta-ation
And I[Dm] won't be back[C] till the dro[G]vin's done[Am]

Instrumental
[C]  [G]  [Am]   [C]  [G]  [Am]                          
Verse 3
Somet[C]imes I think I'll settle back [G]in Sydney          [Am]
But it's bee[C]n so long it's hard to change my mind                  [Am]
For the ca[Dm]ttle trail goes on and on[E]
And the fenc[Dm]es roll forever  [Am]
And I w[Dm]on't be back t[C]ill the drovi[G]n's done [Am]

Chorus
For the r[C]ain never fa[G]lls on the d[Am]usty Diamantina
And a dro[C]ver finds it hard to change his m[Am]ind
For the y[Dm]ears have surely [E]gone
Like the d[Dm]rays from Old Cork [Am]Sta-ation
And I[Dm] won't be ba[C]ck till th[G]e drovin's[Am] done

Chorus
For the r[C]ain never fa[G]lls on the d[Am]usty Diamantina
And a dro[C]ver finds it hard to change his m[Am]ind
For the y[Dm]ears have surely [E]gone
Like the d[Dm]rays from Old Cork [Am]Sta-ation
And I[Dm] won't be ba[C]ck till th[G]e drovin's[Am] done
