Gum Trees By The Roadway chords by Slim Dusty

Slim Dusty Chords

Slim Dusty - Gum Trees By The Roadway 
    G                 E7
To-night here by the road- side 
After driving hard all day, 
Dream in' of the old folks 
       G        D7        G
And a homestead o'er the way; 
    G                E7
In dreams I see the old place, 
I'll be there within a week 
               C                G
Where there's gum trees by the road- way 
       D7             G
And a-willows by the creek.

V2. I see the homestead cattle
As around the place they roam,
The old man with the horses
On the fields of golden loam;
And mother in the doorway
Just to make the scene complete,
With gum trees by the roadway
And willows by the creek.

V3. Oh, I'd like to tell my story
In a simple kind of way,
It happened to many hundreds 
In this war-torn world today;
I heard the call for duty
So I donned a khaki suit
And I marched 'way from the gum trees
And willows by the creek.

V4. But when you land in trouble
And you're placed behind those bars,
That's when you start thinking 
Of the moon and country stars;
And when at last they free you
And you step out in the street,
Nothing then could hold you

5. That's why tonight I'm standng
By this cheery roadside fire,
Takin' in the country
Underneath the summer stars;
And from now on you will find me
Where the air is fresh and sweet,
Where forever there'll be gum trees
And willows by the creek.

And I guess there always will be.
