Somewhere Up In Queensland Lyrics

Now Billy was a blacksmith in the year of forty two
He went right out of business there was no horses to
shoe
He packed his few belongings when the leaves began to
fall
He was going up to Queensland just to anyplace at all

He had a horse and sulky and an old blue heeler dog
They headed ever northward with a steady old jig jog
They camped beside the river ‘neath the willows green
and tall
As they headed up to Queensland just to anyplace at all

One day as they were driving the hours dragged along
He joined the friendly bush birds in their mountain
laughing song
He overtook a stranger who had his swag and all
And he was tramping up to Queensland just to anyplace
at all

Now Billy said to the stranger would you like to take a
ride
You can hop up in the sulky if it won’t hurt yer pride
The stranger thanked him kindly and climbed into the
seat
Where they talked about their livelihood and the
fellers that you meet

[Guitar Solo]

The stranger said I’m Jimmy and I was a shearer’s mate
Oh but the big contractors they say I’m out of date
I kind of got discouraged so I rolled my swag and all
And I’m I headin’ up to Queensland just to anyplace at
all

The two became good cobbers as the weeks they rolled
around
They went over the border and through the darling downs
They camped beside the river of a town I can’t recall
But it was somewhere up in Queensland just to anyplace
at all

Next morning they were waken with horses all around
They saw the same old hitching rails in this old
outback town
Then Billy said to Jimmy in his old familiar drawl
I think we’ll settle down here good as any place at all

They soon rented a stable and a shed without a floor
Jimmy fixed a sign up and he nailed it on the door
It read Blacksmith and shoein’ done no job too big or
small
And it was somewhere up in Queensland at anyplace at
all

They had a boomin’ business and stayed that way for
years
Billy did the shoein’ while jimmy dressed the shears
And of you chance to meet them this story they’ll
recall
When they headed up to Queensland just to anyplace at
all
When they headed up to Queensland just to anyplace at
all
When they headed up to Queensland just to anyplace at
all
