Dogs, Dust And Diesel - Slim Dusty (西林·得斯提)

Hay

 

Dogs and dust and diesel

Have been my mates for

Years

We've thumped the corrugations

And moved a million gears

Seen a heap of country

And met some decent folk

Departed and farewelled them

With a wave of diesel smoke

 

We've lumbered heavy haulage

And run some lively loads

 

Through spinifex and sandhills

Where the bends are pigeon toed

 

Hey been pulled up by the coppers

With me that's

Common mate

Always breakin' some infringement

Now they call me overweight

 

Hey dogs and dust and diesel

Coupled up with oil

And grease

Have bound me to the cabin

With a lifetime verbal

Lease

The song of this old diesel

Ridin' home without a

Stop

Rides easy like the dog and gates all piggy backed

On top

 

I've been bogged out in the donger

Pulled down by

Suction mud

Where swampland bred mosquitoes drained a billy can of blood

 

Worn out a post hole shovel then put my mouth

In gear

 

Pulled it back to neutral just in case the lord

Should hear

 

I boil up by the roadway as daylight slowly dims

And watch the bulldust pyramids tricklin' from the rims

 

Check the dog and diesel air hose and coupling rings

There's a blowout on the bogey and the dog has

Broken springs

 

All through the outback country we find his rendezvous

 

A diesel patch a ring of oil and a sardine

Tin or two

 

Pull tops from the stubbies and a few more tell

Tale clues

Where loads and rolls of topics and general daily news

 

Yeah a truckies compensation is a freeway wide and black

The milepegs fly much faster than those a way outback

 

I'll get dry cleaned and polished have a major service

Done

 

Throughout the truck returnin' home to the dog and diesel run

Hay

 

Hey dogs and dust and diesel have been my mates

For years

We've thumped the corrugations and moved a million gears

Seen a heap of country and met some decent folk

Departed and farewelled them with a wave of diesel smoke
