Bullocky Oh

I draw for Speckle's Mill, bullocky oh, bullocky oh
And it's many a log I drew, bullocky oh
I draw cedar, beech and pine, and I never get on the wine
I'm the king of bullock drivers, don't you know, bullocky oh

Chorus
I'm the king of bullock drivers, don't you know, bullocky oh

There's Guinea and Anderson too, bullocky oh, bullocky oh
And it's many a log they drew, bullocky oh
I can give them a thousand feet, axe 'em square and never cheat
I'm the king of bullock drivers, don't you know, bullocky oh

There's Wapples, too: he brags, bullocky oh bullocky oh
Of his forty raw-boned stags, bullocky oh
I can tell you it's no slander when I say I raise their dander
When they hear the crack of me whip, bullocky oh, bullocky oh

I draw for Speckle's Mill, bullocky oh, bullocky oh
And it's many a log I drew, bullocky oh
I draw cedar, beech and pine, and I never get on the wine
I'm the king of bullock drivers, don't you know, bullocky oh
