Dm
One Sunday morning
Dm
While I was out walking
F 
By the Brisbane's waters
Am
I chanced to stray
Dm
There I found a prisoner

Layed half in the water
F
He'd seen me coming
Am
And he began to say


Dm
I was a native of Erin's Ireland
F
And before I was brought
Am
To this terrible place
Dm
They dragged me away
Dm
From my wife and newborn
F                    Am
And my ailing parents
G
I've been a prisoner at Port Macquarie
Dm
Norfolk Island and Emu Plains
G
At Castle Hill and cursed Toongabbie
B7
At all of these settlements
B7
I've worked in chains
G
But of all the places of condemnation
Dm
At each penal station of New South Wales
G
To Moreton Bay I've found no equal
B7
The tyranny there makes all the rest pale


repeat until forever
