Tenterfield Saddler
The late George Woolnough

Worked on High Street

And lived on manors

52 years he sat on his veranda

And made his saddles

and if you had questions

About sheep or flowers or dogs

You just ask the saddler

He lived without sin

They're building a library for him



Time is a traveller

Tenterfield Saddler turn your head

Ride again Jackaroo

Think I see kangaroo up ahead



The son of George Woolnough

Went off and got married

And had a war baby

But something was wrong

And it's easier to drink than go crazy

And if there were questions about why

The end was so sad

Well George had no answers about why a son

Ever have need of a gun



Time is a traveller

Tenterfield Saddler turn your head

Ride again Jackaroo

Think I see kangaroo up ahead



The grandson of George

Has been all around the world

And lives in no special place

Changed his last name

And he married a girl with an interesting face

He'd almost forgotten them both

Because in the life that he leads

Theres nowhere for George

And his library

Or the son with his gun

To belong

Except in this song



Time is a traveller

Tenterfield Saddler turn your head

Ride again Jackaroo

Think I see kangaroo up ahead



Time is a medler

Tenterfield saddler make your bed

Fly away cockatoo

Down on the ground emu up ahead



Time is a tale teller

Tenterfield saddler turn your head

Ride again jackaroo

Think I see kangaroo up ahead
