TRAVELLING MAN

Lachlan Irvine


[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]

I've been a [C] travelling man for [F] most of my [C] days

From [F] dusty dirt [C] tracks to the [G] coastal high-[C]-ways

I've [C] covered 'most all of the [F] wide brown [C] land

With [F] nothing but a [C] dream to [G] hold in my [C] hand

[F] Wishin' and [C] prayin' [F] before I'm [C] through

I'll find a [F] road that [C] leads me to some-[G]-one like [C] you

[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]


I've been a [C] hitch-hiking man on a [F] lonely [C] track

With an [F] old gui-[C]-tar and a [G] swag on my [C] back

[C] Looking for work for my [F] daily [C] bread

And [F] somewhere [C] soft to lay my [G] weary [C] head

[F] Hummin' and [C] singin' the [F] long night [C] through

A [F] song about [C] finding some-[G]-one like [C] you

[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]


I've been a [C] fighting man, dressed in [F] jungle [C] green

I've [F] seen a lot of [C] things I wish I'd [G] never [C] seen

But if [C] there's one thing in this [F] world I [C] know

When [F] duty [C] calls you just [G] got to [C] go

[F] Hoping each [C] day the next [F] card I [C] drew

Would [F] lead me [C] safely to some-[G]-one like [C] you

[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]


Now I'm a [C] family man, my hard [F] travelling's [C] done

Each [F] day feels [C] like a new [G] life's be-[C]-gun

[C] Working harder than I've [F] done be-[C]-fore

But [F] now I [C] know just what I'm [G] working [C] for

The [F] happiest [C] travelling that I [F] ever [C] knew

Was on the [F] road that [C] brought me to some-[G]-one like [C] you

[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]


Yeah, the [F] happiest [C] travelling that I [F] ever [C] knew

Was on the [F] road that [C] brought me [G] home to [C] you

[F][C][F][C][F][C][G][C]
