Slim Dusty — Walk A Country Mile lyrics

Well I've walked a mile or two-oo in my lifetime
And I've travelled down some muddy tracks and dry
'Cause if I wanted to get where I was go-oin'
I knew I'd just have to walk that country mile
Now a country mile would be the longest distance
A man could ever travel when he's down
And you curse the never ending road before you
When you think you'll never make it into town
But you meet a friend or two along the highway
And you'll learn a lot you never knew before
And if the journey takes a lifetime
When you thought a year or two
Well you just don't give up easy anymore
And I've walked a mile or two-oo in my lifetime
And I've travelled down some muddy tracks and dry
'Cause if I wanted to get where I was go-oin'
I knew I'd just have to walk that country mile
Walkin' that long mile has shown me changes
Changes in the people and the land
But I'll bet the road to Marble Bar's no better
Than when I drove with trucks and caravans
And a country bloke is still the same old battler
No matter what the place he's workin' in
And although I've covered many miles
I still can't wait to see
What the next long country mile will bring
Well I've walked a mile or two-oo in my lifetime
And I've travelled down some muddy tracks and dry
'Cause if I wanted to get where I was go-oin'
I knew I'd just have to walk that country mile
Yes I knew I'd have to walk that country mile
