Song:

Diamantina Drover    C

 

8    9   -10    9    8    7…  7    7    -8   7    -8     8   7   -6

7    -8     8    -9    9    -10

 

7    8    8    8    7    -8    8    8    -8    7    -6

The faces in the photograph have faded

8    9   -10    9     9    8    8    9     9    -10   -10    

And I can't believe he looks so much like me

8     9   -10    9    8     7   8   

For it's been ten years today

7      7    -8     7    -8    8    7    -6

Since I left for Old Cork Station

-6 …     7     7    -6    -7       -7    -7    -7       6      -6    

Sayin' I won't be back till the drovin's done

 

Chorus:

8    9   -10    9    8    7 …  7    7    -8   7    -8     8   7   -6

For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina

8    8   -10   -10     9     9    8    8     8    9    -10

And a drover finds it hard to change his mind

-10    10    10   9    9    8    8  

For the years have surely gone

9    9    -10    9   -10   9   8    7

Like the drays from Old Cork Station

7    -8     8    8    7    -6    -6    -7    6    -6

And I won't be back till the drovin's done

 

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

 

Chorus:

 

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

 

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