"The Ryebuck Shearer"

-Traditional Australian

** submitted by Mike Hiltonwood - i951612@redgum.bendigo.latrobe.edu.au

If I don't shear a tally before I go
then my shears and my stone in the river I'll throw
And I'll never open Sawbees to take another blow
And I'll prove I'm a ryebuck shearer

( same chords for chorus & verses )
( f# = single note, 6th string, 2ndfret )
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/misc_traditional/the_ryebuck_shearer_crd.html ]
G      f#       Em           G    f#   Em
I come from the south and my name it's field
G           D          A7
And when my shears are properly steeled
G     f#       Em          G    f#    Em
A  hundred and more I have very often peeled,
G                   D       G   C  G
And of course I'm a ryebuck shear-er

There's a bloke on the board and I heard him say
That I couldn't shear a hundred sheep in a day
But some fine day I'll show him the way
And prove I'm a ryebuck shearer

There's a bloke on the board and he's got yellow skin
A very long nose and he shaves on the chin
And a voice like a billygoat pissing on a tin
And of course he's a ryebuck shearer

There's a bloke named Bill, or so I've heard
He's got a face like a dried up Buffalow's turd
He thinks he's really good but ya oughta see his bird
She thinks shes a ryebuck shearer

** seen this played several diverse & diferent ways but this is the way I
