Lyrics

1. There's a trade you all know well,
It's bringing cattle over
On ev'ry track from the Gulf and back,
Men know the Queensland drover.

So pass the billy round boys
Don't let the pit pot stand there,
For tonight we'll drink the health of ev'ry overlander.
2. I come from Northern Plains
Where the girls and grass are scanty
Where the creeks run dry or ten feet high
And it's either drought or plenty.

3. There are men from every land
From Spain and France and Flanders
They're a well mixed pack both white and black
The Queensland Overlanders.

4. When we've earned a spree in town
We live like pigs in clover
And the whole damn cheque pouts down the neck
Of many Overlander.

5.As I pass along the road
The children raise my dander
Shouting 'Mother dear take in the clothes
Here comes the overlander
