Verse 1
6-5    5     5    5     -5   6   -5  5  6
 A   strap-ping young stock-man lay dy-ing,
6  -6 -6  -6   6    5   4   -4
A sad-dle sup-port-ing his head,
 6   -5  5    5   5  -5    6   -5   5   6
And his com-rades a-round him were cry-ing,
 6  6   -6  -7  7   5 -5   -4   4
As he leant on his el-bow and said:

CHORUS

   6  -5  5  5  5   -5   6   -5    5    6
"Wrap me up in my stock-whip and blank-et,
 6  -6 -6 -6   6    5   4  -4
And bu-ry me deep down be-low,
  6    -5   5   5   5   -5    6   -5   5   6
Where the ding-oes and crows will not find me,
 6  6   -6    -7    7   5  -5  -4    4
In the shade where the coo-li-bahs grow".

Verse 2
"Then cut down two stringybark saplings,
Place one on my head and my toe,
Carve on them crossed stockwhip and saddle,
To show there's a stockman below".

Verse 3
"There's tea in the battered old billy,
Place the pannikins all in a row,
And we'll drink to the next merry meeting,
And say that a stockman lies low".

Verse 4
"If I had the flight of a bronzewing,
Away to my true love I'd fly,
Straight to the home of my childhood
And there I would lay down and die".

Verse 5
"But hark 'tis the wail of a dingo,
Watchful and weird I must go,
For it tolls the death-knell of the stockman,
Who soon will be lying below."
