Leave Him In The Longyard
Recorded by Slim Dusty
Written by Kelly Dixon

C
Yes he's looking kind of jaded

And his sight is not the best
C7 F
And the hair around his muzzle's turning grey
G7
He has seen a hundred musters

And I think it's only fair
C
That we leave him in the longyard here today


He was broken in the sixties

Maybe sixty three or four
C7 F
Never faltered always seemed to be on hand
G7
Never have I seen him beaten

By a bullock in the bush
C
And at a night watch he was pick of all the land


So leave him out there in the longyard

Do not rush him
G7
Leave him out there with his mate the baldy bay

Leave him there till after smoko

And we'll catch him
C
Pull his tail and turn him out today


Repeat #1


He's entitled to some kindness

In return for all he's been
C7 F
Now he's failing and his step is getting slow
G7
Let him squander his last summer

By the river with his mates
C
In the paddock where the sweetest grasses grow


So leave him out there in the longyard

Do not rush him
G7
Leave him out there with his mate the baldy bay

With his mates that he can graze

And he can laze with
C
Leave him there and we will turn him out today

Repeat last verse x2

G7 C
Leave him there and we will turn him out today
