By The Fire Of A Gidgee Coal

	  		D  A  E  A 
INTRO 
 
 
     A 
By a warm electric heater, 
     D 
In a softly padded chair, 
                          A      
In a lounge room brightly lighted 
     E             A 
By a glowing chandelier. 
         
Since my early days of drovin', 
    D 
The years have taken toll. 
                      A 
But I somehow miss my swag wrap, 
     E              A 
By a fire of Gidgee coal. 
 
 
       A 
When I wake from sleep each morning 
    D 
And ring my bedside bell, 
                      A 
The maid brings me my breakfast, 
        E                A 
And she fills my pipe as well. 
  
There are cakes and sweetened coffee, 
     D 
On a tray of sparkling gold. 
                         A 
But I miss black tea and damper, 
     E              A 
By a fire of Gidgee coal. 
 
 
A  D   A  E  A 
INSTRUMENTAL 
 
 
    A 
I'm driven out each evening 
     D 
By a chaffeur spruce and neat, 
                               A 
Through the flowered parks and gardens 
        E            A 
And the crowded city streets. 
 
But I drift back through the ages, 
          D 
While the big car softly rolls. 
                       A 
To a stock route and a wagonette, 
      E              A 
And a fire of Gidgee coal. 
 
 
    A 
I attend all social parties 
       D 
In the rich parts of town. 
                         A 
Drinking wine from fancy glasses 
       E                A 
As the waiters go their rounds. 
 
But I'd rather share a bottle 
           D          
With those drovin' mates of old. 
                   A 
In a pair of dusty moleskins, 
     E              A 
By a fire of Gidgee coal. 
  
Yes I'd rather share a bottle 
           D  
With those drovin' mates of old. 
                   A 
In a pair of dusty moleskins, 
     E              A     D  A  E  A 
By a fire of Gidgee coal.
