Jimmy Webster Mate Of Mine Lyrics

OUT NEAR MERRIWAGGA AROUND THE OLD BLACK STUMP
I HEARD SONGS SO AUSTRALIAN AS THE KANGAROOS THAT JUMP
SANG BY JIMMY WEBSTER AN OLD BUSH MATE OF MINE
AS WE SANG AND PLAYED GUITAR ONE NIGHT WHILE SIPPING ON
SOME WINE

JIM TOLD IN SONG THE LEGEND HOW THE BLACK STUMP GOT ITS
NAME
OUT NEAR MERRIWAGGA A HOUSE WENT UP IN FLAMES
A DROVER CAME HOME TO HIS WIFE THEN SADLY WELL HE HEARD
HIS POOR WIFE HAD BEEN BURNT TO DEATH
IT MADE THE POOR MAN YEARN
WELL HE LOOKED AROUND THE ASHES BUCKLED IRON AND BURNT
WOOD
AND THEN BEFORE THE CHIMNEY WHERE THE KITCHEN ONCE HAD
STOOD
THEN HE SAW IT IT STANDING IT MADE TO OLD MAN JUMP
ALL THAT HE FOUND LEFT OF HER RESEMBLED AN OLD BLACK
STUMP

HE THEN TOLD OF THE REDBACKS AND THE FEARFUL
BULL DOG ANTS
HOW THE KIDS WOULD BRING THEM HOME TO MUMS
IN THE POCKETS OF THERE PANTS
FOR OUT THER NEAR THE ONE TREE PLAINS
BENIETH THE WESTERN SKY'S
REDBACKS ARE AS COMMEN AS MOSQUITO'S AND BLOW FLIES

HE ALSO TOLD SOME STORIES OF THE HILSTON RODEO
AND TOLD IN SONG THE LEGEND OF THE FAMOUS COB AND CO
FOR BACK WHEN TRUNK ROAD EIGHTY WAS A DUSTY LITTLE
TRACK
THE LIGHTS FROM THAT OLD MAIL COACH WERE SEEN MOVING
THERE OUT BACK

NOW MEMORIES WILL STAY WITH ME OF BLOKES IN LIFE I KNEW
BUT THE SINGING SHEARER JIMMY WEBSTER WAS A MATE SO
TRUE
I MEY HIM THERE IN HILSTON WHEN WE HAD THAT LITTLE WINE
AT THE OLD PLACE THERE IN MOLESWORTH ST
JIMMY WEBSTER MATE OF MINE

KERRY HODGE ONE OF MY MOST LOVED SONGS ABOUT AN OLD
MATE
