Lyrics

I’M A COUNTRY BOY
© 2000 Craig Stewart
INTRO
C# A#m F# G# (X2)

C# A#m F# G#
Well I’m a country boy, I’m country born and bred
My grandpa ran the general store, and made things in his shed
Mum, she comes from farming stock, at a place called Bithramere
I’ll expect you haven’t heard of it, but I assure you, it’s still there

CHORUS
F# C# G#
Oh the city life, is not the life for me
F# C# G#
I’m proud to say I come from the country
F# G G# (TACET)
I hop around beneath a sky of blue
C# A#m F# G#
Like a big old kangaroo

Don’t think because I live out here, that I’m a simple man
I’ve worked in lots of cities, and travelled other lands
But the bush is in my blood you see, it pulses through my veins
C# A#m F# G# C#
It draws me back, and holds me dear, from the coastline to the plains

(CHORUS)

MIDDLE 8
F# C# (G#)
A dusty track, a run down shack, a bubbling mountain stream
F# C# (G#)
A place where you and I can share the view
F# C#
The eucalypts, a koala sits, not a worry in the world
G# C# A#m F# G#
And then of course there’s my old mate the kangaroo, woo hoo
C# A#m F# G#
Just me and you
C# A#m F# G#
And a sky of blue
