DUG OUT IN THE TRUE
(Anon)

I am just a poor old shearer,
I am stationed on the board,
I've got my little handpiece in my hand

Chorus
But I'm happy as a clan
In this land of ewes and lambs
In my tick-bound, bug-bound dugout in the true

Oh the place is strewn all round?
With sheep wool and sheep dags
?Of rouseabouts there are so very few

Chorus

Oh the walls are made of iron
And the windows made of bag
?And the doorways let the howling rousies through

Chorus

Oft times I wish I had a girl
?To sit upon my knee
?Relieve me of the pain that I am in

Chorus

That girl how I would love her?
If she'd come and live with me
?In my tick-bound, bug-bound dugout in the true

Chorus
