CHORUS:
D
My land by the water , my land by the waterside

Jiir, milgin-ngurru

Feeding on the rising tide


Bm                                                         D
High above the mangrove down Burrgoogoon hunting  for my family
Bm                                          D
You know the tide right , just look at the moon
Bm                                                                    D
Yellow wattle flower smell 'em, tell 'em that the mullet must be fat today
Bm                                            A
Sliding in, glide on the wind of the late afternoon  --> CHORUS


Bm                                                            D
Local fisherman gotta bagful, gotta big gang plenty mouth to feed
Bm                                                   D
Man with the badge say hey you you're breaking the rules
Bm                                           
Don't care what your rule is you know thousand politicians couldn't
           D
change my ways
Bm                                             A
My law is the sea and pull of the sun and the moon


D
My land by the water , my land by the waterside

Jiir, milgin-ngurru

Feeding on the rising tide
