This is one of my favourite Australian Artists... singing about a farmer who tries to muster (gather) his sheep whilst a little drunk... very funny... :laugh: here are the lyrics and the link to the song....

Drink Droving by Tom Curtain

Old Joe was a farmer, lived off the land
Had a caloused heart and a caloused hand
Gave up on women, never wed
Gave his soul to his beer and a dog called Red

Red was fiery, young and keen
A real lunatic if you know what I mean
Worked pretty hard, loyal and true,
When Joe got drunk, Red got confused

Get back, push in, come by, go round
Move out, get over, come here and get down
Way back, walk in by, get out
Good dog, behind, that'l do, lie down.

Good dog Red, Let's work as a team today eh mate, a team

Mustering sheep to spray for lice
Saddlebags full of beer on ice
The day was hot, and was saddle sore
He sank a few and he sank some more

Feeling high getting close to the yard
He took another beer from his mobile bar
Joe was nearly two parts gone
This is when it all went wrong

Red..Get back, push in, come by, go round
Move out, (hic), and come here and get down
Way back, walk in, (hic), get out
Good dog, behind, that'l do, lie down

Red where are ya.. I know you're out there

Rams and ewes buzzing like flys
The mob had doubled before his eyes
Sheep going here, sheep going there
Joe didn't know and Red didn't care

Joe's pickled brain was in reverse
And just when things could get no worse
His spur got caught in the horse's mane
And upside down he tried again

(hic)Red ..Get back, push in, come by, (hic) and move out
Come here (hic) and go away,
Lie down, get hold of him Red, (hic) get behind

Red.. that's the way, (hic)or is that just a stump... buggar it Red

Where the hell are ya..I can see two of ya, so both of ya (hic), both of ya come here eh

Where's me bloody beer (hic), stand still ya mongrel horse

Get the hell out of it where ever you are... useless dam mutt.
