Lee Kernaghan – Aussie lyrics

There'd be a blue out the back
And we'd all rush from the bar to take a look
Drover Pat and Billy argued
Been drinkin in the heat all afternoon
They were rollin in the dirt, fists were flyin,
Things were gettin rough,
When billy stated bleedin,
The publican said fellas break it up

Shake on it,
Just put it there
That's the way its always been round here
You cantrust a man
When he held out is hand
And said lets shake on it

They were battered and briused
When pat and billy picked themselves up
They looked each other over
Two friends appeared from behind the sweat and dust
Billy picked up his hat and clipped his old man on the ear
And said we'll call it a draw pat,
But I reckon you owe me a beer


Now the years have rolled by
And they still disagree
But that old handshakes as firm
As it used to be
