D                            F#m
I spent my youth down by the markets near the docks
            G               A                    G        F#     Em
and we went chasing all the wharfies girls in their cheap floral frocks
D                           F#m
I spent my money at them waterside hotels
        G           A               G      F#      Em
We were regulars at all of them the barmen knew us well
F#m             Bm           G
Six o'clock was closing then we would swill then travel home
F#m           Bm             A
or drink some bottles on the beach
F#m              Bm               G
Then when winter came around we'd head down to the oval
      F#m          Bm         A
and we'd stand there in the freezing cold, watch our heroes train

[Chorus]
                G            A              D              A      G
Because there's just so many tricks that an old dog he can learn
            G        F#    Em               F#m   Em  D
and I will spend my life a waiting 'til the Swans return

D                            F#m
I earnt my money doing this and doing that
G               A     G        F#  Em
I could never seem to stick at anything
D                           F#m
I'd turn my hand to almost any job of work
           G            A               G        F#    Em
and it was funny how my luck would run, I'd look after number one
F#m            Bm                    G
Then when the depression came it was time to hit the track
F#m                 Bm             A
There was no point starving in the town
F#m              Bm                                 G
Told my Mum that I would write, and my old man that I'd be back
         F#m             Bm             A
By footy season couldn't let our heroes down

[Chorus]
                G            A              D              A      G
Because there's just so many tricks that an old dog he can learn
            G        F#    Em               F#m   Em  D
and I will spend my life a waiting 'til the Swans return

[Bridge]
F#m                                 Bm
Well I was down the Star and Garter when the news it came
F#m                         G            A
nothin' anyone could do nor anyone could say
    F#m                         Bm
So we will fill a flowing glass to a team that's gone
          F#m                            G          A
but we're drinking to the red and white (to some of us it'll always be South Melbourne)

[Chorus]
                G            A              D              A      G
Because there's just so many tricks that an old Blood he can learn
            G        F#    Em               
and I will spend my life a waiting
       G        F#    Em               
I will spend my life a hating
     G        F#         Em                 F#m   Em  D
Oh I can't do nought but bleeding, 'til the Swans return
