the dubliners – now i’m easy lyrics

Loading...

for nearly sixty years, i’ve been a c+cky
of droughts and fires and floods i’ve lived through plenty
this country’s dust and mud have seen my tears and blood
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy

i married a fine girl when i was twenty
she died in giving birth when she was thirty
no flying doctor then, just a gentle old black ‘gin
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy

she left me with two sons and a daughter
and a bone+dry farm whose soil cried out for water
though my care was rough and ready, they grew up fine and steady
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy

my daughter married young and went her own way
my sons lie buried by the burma railway
so on this land i’ve made me home, i’ve carried on alone
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy

city folks these days despise the c+cky
say with subsidies and dole, we’ve had it easy
but there’s no drought or starving stock on a sewered suburban block
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy

for nearly sixty years, i’ve been a c+cky
of droughts and fires and floods, i’ve lived through plenty
this country’s dust and mud, have seen my tears and blood
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy
but it’s nearly over now, and now i’m easy
