Diamantina Drover

John Williamson

 CGAm
Verse 1
 CGAm
The faces in the photograph have faded
 CAm
And I can't believe he looks so much like me
 DmE
For it's been ten years today
 DmAm
Since I left for Old Cork Station
 DmCGAm
Sayin' I won't be back till the drovin's done

Chorus
 CGAm
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
 CAm
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
 DmE
For the years have surely gone
 DmAm
Like the drays from Old Cork Station
 DmCGAm
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Verse 2
 CGAm
Well it seems like the sun comes up each mornin'
 CAm
Sets me up and takes it all away
 DmE
For the dreaming by the light
 DmAm
Of the camp fire at night
 DmCGAm
Ends with the burning by the day

Chorus
 CGAm
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
 CAm
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
 DmE
For the years have surely gone
 DmAm
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
 DmCGAm
And I won't be back till the drovin's done 

Instrumental

Verse 3
 CGAm
Sometimes I think I'll settle back in Sydney           
 CAm
But it's been so long it's hard to change my mind                   
 DmE
For the cattle trail goes on and on 
 DmAm
And the fences roll forever   
 DmCGAm
And I won't be back till the drovin's done  

Chorus
 CGAm
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
 CAm
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
 DmE
For the years have surely gone
 DmAm
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
 DmCGAm
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Chorus
 CGAm
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
 CAm
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
 DmE
For the years have surely gone
 DmAm
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
 DmCGAm
And I won't be back till the drovin's done
