1                                Out on the board the old shear-er stands
2                     In the middle of the floor in his cane bottom chair
3                      The colonial experience man, he is there of course
        
4                                  The tar-boy is there waiting in demand
        
5                 Now the shearing is all over, we've all got our cheques
        
6                      There we leave him standing shouting for all hands

1 Grasp-ing his shears in his thin  bo - ny hands Fixed is his gaze on
2 Sits the boss of the board with his eyes everywhere Notes well each fleece
3 With his shiny leggin's on just got off his horse Gazes all around him like
4 With his blackened tar-pot, in his tarry hand Spies one old sheep
5 So roll up your swags and its off down the track the first pub we come to
its
6 Whilst all around him every 'shouter' stands His eye is on the keg
   G                 A7             D        A7      D

1 a bare bel-lied yoe Glo-ry if he gets her, wont he make the ring-er go
2 as it comes to the screen, Paying strict attention that it's taken off clean
3 a real connoisseur Scented soap, and brilliantine and smelling like a whore
4 with a cut upon its back Hears what he's waiting for it's "Tar here, Jack!"
5 there well have a spree and everyone that comes along its Have a drink
withme
6 which now is lowering fast He works hard he drinks hard and goes to Hell
at last
