Slim Dusty lyrics : "Sonny"

With my head stuck in the glove box cursin' searchin' for a key
When a voice said G'day Dusty, bloody well remember me
I looked up yes it was Sonny, I couldn't place him for awhile

Cause his face was rather beaten from a pretty hard lifestyle

Yes we'd been kids together, on the farm we were good friends

But our pasts have really drifted unbelievably since then
And our meetings seem quite regular every two or three years now
It gets harder now to pick up threads and talk to him somehow


With pride he spoke of old times and his family doing well
One brother in a mansion by the seaside with the swells

Oh he'd won and lost some fortunes some for better mainly worse
Had hard luck with the horses and an everlasting thirst


But he's always in the big time on the up and up you know
And he's always heading somewhere in the search for bigger dough
But his life of beer and brawling in the road camps and the mines

His life was not so great at all as I read between the lines

Yes we'd been kids together, on the farm we were good friends

But our pasts have really drifted unbelievably since then
And our meetings seem quite regular every two or three years now
It gets harder now to pick up threads and talk to him somehow


But I've met him in the city in the midst of maddened rush
And I've met him in the big towns and small pubs in the bush

But my heart was rather saddened for a life damn near destroyed
I was looking at an old man that I once knew as a boy


We talked awhile and I noticed how he checked the time
The pubs would soon be open but his offer I declined
So he said ?I'll see yer Dusty? on the street we shook hands then

And I wondered what might happen before we meet again

Yes we'd been kids together, on the farm we were good friends

But our pasts have really drifted unbelievably since then
Oh he reminded me of Sweeny, you've heard that song before
As he gave a lurch and headed for the nearest swinging door
