STANDARD TUNING, NO CAPO

[INTRO]
Em  C  Em  C

[1st VERSE]
Em                           C                          Em
In the corner of the Dunlop Hotel sits a weathered old man,
Em                               C                      Em
Whose face looks like it's been around since time first began.
Em                                   C
He's bent, he's burnt out, his hands constantly shake,
        D                         C
From a love of the grog he could never forsake,
         Em                      D                     G
And his five o'clock shadow's a few shades paler than grey.
   Em                      C                       Em
A lifetime spent in the saddle has taken it's toll,
Em                      C                    Em
Riding away from a generation that somebody stole.
Em                                C
And the stories he tells are like novels from Verne,
         D                     C
And his eyes light up like the cane fires burn,
     Em                                D                          G
As he speaks of the stock routes, the camps, and good bosses he's known.

[CHORUS]
          C                  G                           D                       G
So let me shout you a beer, roll you a smoke, raise my glass in salute to you, Jacky Kneebone
      C                        G                     D                      C
Your face is forgotten, your legend untold, you're lost in the new world alone.
            Em                         D                        G
But still rivers, stock routes and fresh horses will carry you home.

[BRIDGE]
Em  C  Em  C

[2nd VERSE]
   Em                  C                         Em
He sips on his rum and mumbles a few words to himself,
Em                                 C                 Em
As a cocky young ringer comes and orders some booze from the top shelf.
Em                                  C
Self-righteous and drunk he starts in on old Jack,
       D                      C
In an angry unprovoked racist verbal attack,
        Em                         D                   G
But the old man just sits there in silence and weathers the spray. 
Em                         C                         Em
Still without word, Jacky awkwardly gets to his feet, 
Em                                      C                Em
pushes his battered hat back on his head and begins to retreat. 
Em                                        C
But the abuse still comes quick and rains down on him fast,
     D                            C
Till finally Jacky has taken his last,
       Em                           D                    G
And a lightning fast crashing right blow brings an end to the storm. 
G
And the old man looks down at the boy and he says... 
Em                            C
How can you judge me when you don't even know me?
     D                        C
Men far greater than you have fallen beneath me.
        Em                       D                      G
And the very next words that you say should be I'm sorry Sir.

[CHORUS]
          C                  G                           D                       G
So let me shout you a beer, roll you a smoke, raise my glass in salute to you, Jacky Kneebone
      C                        G                     D                      C
Your face is forgotten, your legend untold, you're lost in the new world alone.
            Em                         D                        G
But still rivers, stock routes and fresh horses will carry you home.
          C                  G                           D                       G
He said let me shout you a beer, roll you a smoke, raise my glass in salute to you, Jacky Kneebone
      C                        G                     D                      C
Your face is forgotten, your legend untold, you're lost in the new world alone.
            Em                         D                        G
But still rivers, stock routes and fresh horses will carry you home.
