The Diamintina Drover by John Williamson
tabbed by Skam127

You can choose to fingerpick the song if you want BUT I'm to lazy to write a propper tab 
it and I like using full chords.

If you can make an improvement please tell me becasue i know that this isn't exact but 
sounds good.

<B>Intro:
C G Am
C G Am

Verse 1
  C             G              Am
The faces in the photograph have faded
      C                                   Am
And I can't believe he looks so much like me
          Dm             E
For it's been ten years today
         Dm                 Am
Since I left for Old Cork Station
       Dm          C         G         Am
Sayin' I won't be back till the drovin's done

<B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Station
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

Verse 2
        C               G                Am
Well it seems like the sun comes up each mornin'
      C                      Am
Sets me up and takes it all away
        Dm               E
For the dreaming by the light
        Dm          Am
Of the camp fire at night
  Dm          C        G     Am
Ends with the burning by the day

<B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm            C            G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

<B>Instrumental
C G Am C G Am

Verse 3
     C                             G                  Am
Sometimes I think I'll settle back in Sydney
            C                                                      Am
But it's been so long it's hard to change my mind
          Dm                       E
For the cattle trail goes on and on
            Dm               Am
And the fences roll forever
       Dm            C            G        Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

<B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done

<B>Chorus
         C           G           Am
For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina
         C                                Am
And a drover finds it hard to change his mind
         Dm               E
For the years have surely gone
          Dm                 Am
Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation
     Dm          C         G         Am
And I won't be back till the drovin's done
