When the Rain Tumbles Down in July

	  		   C      G            C 
Let me wander north to the homestead 
    F                       C 
Way out further on there to roam 
     F                      C    Am        
By a gully in flood let me linger 
         C       D7           G                    
When the summery sunshine has flown 
      C               G         C               
Where the logs tangle up on the creek bed 
        F                            C                           
And the clouds veil the old northern sky 
        F                         C        Am                  
And the cattle move back from the lowlands 
         C             G       C                   
When the rain tumbles down in July 
  
     C             G              C           
The settlers with sad hearts are watching 
     F                           C                    
The rise of the stream from the dawn 
       F                        C        Am                        
Their best crops are always in flood reach 
       C         D7               G      
If it rises much more they'll be gone 
     C             G             C          
The cattle string out along the fences 
        F                          C                       
As the breeze from the south races by 
         F                           C      Am              
And the limbs from the old gums are falling 
          C            G       C                    
When the rain tumbles down in July  
 
     C            G           C 
The old sleeping gums by the river 
 F                       C        
Awaken to herds straying by 
          F                           C       Am                  
From the flats where the fences have vanished 
        C            D7        G               
As the storm clouds gather on high 
      C            G           C                
The wheels of the wagons stop turning 
         F                            C                         
And the stock horse is turned out to stray 
         F                      C     Am                
And the old station dogs are a-dozing 
        D            D7               G                
On the husks in the barn through the day 
 
     C            G           C  
The drover draws rein by the river 
           F                           C                        
It?s been years since he's seen it so high 
     F                      C       Am                  
And that's just a story of homeward 
          C            G       C F C                  
When the rain tumbles down in July
