Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

All 4 ladies chain, now turn the girl around
Roll away, circle to the left and now
Ladies roll away, well circle left I say
Allemande left the corner, weave the ring (sing it with me)
Give me a home amongst the gum trees
With lots of plum trees, a sheep or two and a kangaroo
And a clothes line out the back, verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru go 4 hands around
Round the corner lady, dosado and now
Swing thru and then spin the top you do
Boys move up and then go right & left thru
Square thru 3 hands, walking round the ring
Swing the corner girl, let's promenade I sing
Clothes line out the back and verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair


TAG

And an old rocking chair
An old rocking chair
An old rocking chair

Home Among The Gum Trees
 
 

I've been around the world a couple
Of times or maybe more
I've seen the sights, I've had delights
On every foreign shore
But when my friends all ask me the place
That I adore I tell them right away

Give me a home among the gum trees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a kangaroo
A clothes-line out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair

You can see me in the kitchen
Cookin' up a roast
Or Vegemite on toast
Just you and me, a cup of tea
Later on we'll settle down
And mull up on the porch
And watch the possums play

Some people like their houses
With fences all around
Others live in mansions
And some beneath the ground
But me, I like the bush, you know
With rabbits running 'round
And a pumpkin vine out the back

Lyrics by Wally Johnson and Robert Brown.
Recorded by John Williamson.
