THE DIAMANTINA DROVER (Hugh MacDonald) John Williamson Also recorded by: The House Band; Patrick Street The faces in the photograph have faded And I can't believe he looks so much like me For it's been ten years today Since I left for Old Cork Station Sayin' I won't be back till the drovin's done For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina And a drover finds it hard to change his mind For the years have surely gone Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation And I won't be back till the drovin's done Well it seems like the sun comes up each mornin' Sets me up and takes it all away For the dreaming by the light Of the camp fire at ni-ight Ends with the burning by the day For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina And a drover finds it hard to change his mind For the years have surely gone Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation And I won't be back till the drovin's done Sometimes I think I'll settle back in Sydney But it's been so long it's hard to change my mind For the cattle trail goes on and on And the fences roll forever And I won't be back till the drovin's done For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina And a drover finds it hard to change his mind For the years have surely gone Like the drays from Old Cork Sta-ation And I won't be back till the drovin's done For the rain never falls on the dusty Diamantina And a drover finds it hard to change his mind For the years have surely gone Like the drays from Old Cork Station And I won't be back till the drovin's done
