From Townsville to Greenvale we're building a line
Through the ranges and the gorges and the great nickel mine
The long days are dusty and hotter than hell
And that's why we all worship Three Rivers Hotel
There's Thiess Brothers camp on the banks of the Star
Where men from all nations and walks of life are
And it's funny to listen to the stories they tell
Every night 'round the bar at Three Rivers Hotel
And we curse at the things that go wrong through the day
And vow that we'll snatch it, and go far away
But when day is done and we're soon feeling well
The laughter rings out from Three Rivers Hotel
And the night after payday there's fun and romance
It's a night for the fam'lies to sing and to dance
You can let down your hair and come out of your shell
You can do your own thing in Three Rivers Hotel
And if you listen to the bosses when the night's gettin' late
On the progress they're makin' the best in the state
They'd be finished this line and the maintenance as well
If they worked like they bragged in Three Rivers Hotel
All together now
From Townsville to Greenvale we're building a line
Through the ranges and the gorges and the great nickel mine
The long days are dusty and hotter than hell
And that's why we all worship Three Rivers Hotel
Oh the long days are dusty and hotter than hell
And that's why we all worship Three Rivers Hotel
