Key: G
G                   D          G 
I'm into cattle, my Father was too 
G                            D           G 
From Great Great Grandfather all the way through 
G                              C          G 
And we scarcely have wasted an hour of daylight 
G                              D        G Strum from here 
Stickin' to Herefords and it's been all right 
  
 
G                               D          G 
Prepared for the lean times and save for a drought 
G                                 D            G 
But you can't always plan how the future turns out  
G                        C            G 
Life's gettin' harder to make what we need 
G                          D              G 
With low cattle prices and more mouths to feed  
 
 
(refrain) 
 
G                         C          G 
Oh, six generations where camels run free 
G                     A        D 
I hope I am never too blind to see 
    G                           C         G 
How fortunate, how proud can an old fella be 
G                                    D               G 
Three sons in their swags 'round the stock camp with me

G                              D       G 
Sent the boys off to school to see Adelaide 
G                            D          G   
How other folks live, get a job learn a trade 
G                        C                            G 
Couldn't keep them away 'cause their hearts are still here 
G                         D          G 
My butcher, my welder, my diesel engineer 
 
 
(refrain) 
 
G                         C          G 
Oh, six generations where camels run free 
G                     A        D 
I hope I am never too blind to see 
    G                           C         G 
How fortunate, how proud can an old fella be 
G                                    D               G 
Three sons in their swags 'round the stock camp with me  
 
 
G                              C            G 
And I come in for dinner, the sun hits the range 
G                            A          D  
In a matter of seconds the colours all change 
G                             C            G 
From gold down to violet the soul has been burned 
G                            D         G 
And I understand fully why they have returned  
 
 
G                         D          G 
Cause I'm into cattle, my Father was too 
G                            D           G 
From Great Great Grandfather all the way through 
G                              C          G  
And we've never been guilty of wasting daylight 
G                                 D             G              
We work hard, we play hard and we sleep well at night 
 
  
(refrain) 
 
G                         C          G 
Oh, six generations where camels run free 
G                     A        D 
I hope I am never too blind to see 
    G                           C         G 
How fortunate, how proud can an old fella be 
G                                    D               G 
Three sons in their swags 'round the stock camp with me  
G                                    D               G 
Three sons in their swags 'round the stock camp with me 
 
Ending G  
 
 
Just a quick note: This is my first chord effort ever. Start the song off with  
single strokes or just pick the notes until the last G on the first verse. 
 
I am pleased to have completed one of Johns songs first as he is one of my  
favourite artist, song writers. 
 
 
Have fun! And remember, to keep it country
