Well I was hitching a ride on a winding Hokitika road When along came a lorry with a high and canvas-covered load "If you're going to Hokitika, mate, with me you can ride" So I jumped into the cabin and settled down inside He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand And I said, "Look, listen mate, I've been everywhere in this here land ...
