The Overlanders Songtext
von The Irish Rovers

The Overlanders Songtext

There's a trade you all know well
And it's bringing cattle over
On every track to the gulf and back
Men know the Queensland drover

So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pint pot stand there
For tonight we'll drink the health
Of every Overlander

I come from the Northern plains
Where the girls and grass are scanty
Where the creeks run dry or ten feet high
And it's either drought or plenty

So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pint pot stand there
For tonight we'll drink the health
Of every Overlander


There are men from every land
From Spain and France and Flanders
They're a well mixed pack, both white and black
The Queensland Overlanders

So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pint pot stand there
For tonight we'll drink the health
Of every Overlander

When we've earned a spree in town
We live like pigs in clover
And the whole dam cheque pours down the neck
Of many a Queensland drover

So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pint pot stand there
For tonight we'll drink the health
Of every Overlander

As I pass along the road
The children raise my dander
Shouting "Mother dear, take in the clothes
Here comes an Overlander"


So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pint pot stand there
For tonight we'll drink the health
Of every Overlander
