John Williamson – Home Among The Gumtrees lyrics

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 ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, verandah 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.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front,
And an old rocking chair.

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.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front,
And an old rocking chair.

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.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front,
And an old rocking chair.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, verandah out the front,
And an old rocking chair.
