D7

G Em
I’ve been around the world

Am D7
A couple of times or maybe more

Am D7
I’ve seen the sights, I’ve had delights

G D7
On every foreign shore

G Em
But when my mates all ask me

Am D7
The place that I adore

Am D7 G
I tell them right away

G Em Am D7
Give me a home among the gumtrees

Am
With lots of plum trees

G D7
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo

G Em
A clothesline out the back

Am D7
Verandah out the front

Am D7 G
And an old rocking chair

You can see me in the kitchen
Cooking up a roast
Or Vegemite on toast
Just you and me, a cup of tea
And later on, we’ll settle down
And go out on the porch
And watch the possums play

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

C
There’s a Safeways up the corner

G
And a Woolies down the street

D7
And a brand new place they’ve opened up

G G7
Where they regulate the heat

C
But I’d trade them all tomorrow

G
For a little bush retreat

D7
Where the kookaburras call

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

Some people like their houses
With fences all around
Others live in mansions
And some beneath the ground
But me I like the bush you know
With rabbits running round
And a pumpkin vine out the back

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

Give me a home among the gumtrees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair
