John Williamson lyrics : "Home Among the Gum Trees (Live)"

I've been around the world a couple of times, or maybe more,
I've seen the sights, I've had delights on every foreign shore,
but when my mates all ask me the place that I adore,

I tell them right away.


Give me a home among the gum trees,
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, veranda out the front,

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 mull up on the porch,
and watch the possums play.


There's a Safeway up the corner, and a Woolys down the street,
a brand new place they've opened up where they regulate the heat,
but I'd trade them all tomorrow for a simple bush retreat

where the kookaburras call.


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.

[Chorus x2]
