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

you dont't need any tab from this guy.. it's totally wrong.. first thing is that the guitar is capoed on the 1st fret.. otherway the chords are pretty wrong..
