WALGETT
By John Reddin

Well Iíve never been to Walgett
On the far side of the hill
Iíve never been to Walgett
And I guess I never will

Iíve been to Mullumbimby
And to old Kalgoorlie town
Been across to Thargomindah
Had a look at Daintreeís crown

But Iíve never been to Walgett
Never seen their streets of gold
Yes Iíd like to go to Walgett
Before I get much too old

There were girls in Coober-Pedy
And a fight in Pinnaroo
Got myself drunk in ďThe AliceĒ
Down to Tassie. Been there too.

But I've never been to Walgett
Just turn left at Byron Bay
No Iíve never been to Walgett
Going to get there one fine day

I heard ďMakkaĒ on the radio
Right out the back of Bourke
And a policeman out in Emerald
Made me do some social work

But Iíve never been to Walgett
Never found it on the map
No Iíve never been to Walgett
Heard the Mayorís a decent chap

So Iím making plans for Walgett
Going to get there if I can
Yes Iím heading off to Walgett
Goiní to track down my old man

'Cause the coot just up and left us
Me and Mum and little Joe
And Iím goiní to give him ďwhat forĒ
Off to Walgett I will go

So Iíve never been to Walgett
Donít know where the hell it is
But Iím goiní to go to Walgett
Goiní to make that old town Fizz!
