I'm trying to find lyrics and chords for a song I only have as a bad recording. The chorus is (I think) as follows:

We've got a pi-eyed aborigine
Playing on his Didgeri
Do you hear the Captain whistling the blues
A banjo pickin' bosun
And a crew that hates the ocean
On the Sydney Harbour Ferry Boat
Loaded up with booze

Has anyone else heard this? Have complete lyrics? Any lyrics?

Cheers!

PoohBear

G'day PoohBear,

Best of luck with that one ... I looked in because I have a few Sydney Harbour Ferry songs - Bernard Bolan's Rose Bay Ferry and a collected version of an old song Take Me Down the Harbour, but that one is new on me (and doesn't sound Australian ... more of a travelogue view).

Regards,

Bob Bolton

It's on The Irish Rovers - Their Greatest Hits & Finest Performances (3 CD set). No luck with lyrics so far.

Thanks PA! At least it's a starting point since I didn't even know who it is on the recording I have. Maybe someone else will have access to chording & lyrics...

Cheers!

PB
