From Townsville to Greenvale we're building a line 
                                      A            E 
Through the ranges and gorges to the great nickel mine 
The long days are dusty and hotter than hell

It's Theiss Brothers camp on the banks of the Star 
                                A             E 
Where men from all nations and walks of life are 
And it's funny to listen to the stories they tell

Every night round the bar in Three Rivers Hotel 

 E                              A                 E 
We curse at the things that go wrong through the day 
                             A       E 
And vow that we'll snatch it go far away 
But when day is done and we're soon feeling well

There's Wesley the barman and young irish Joe 
                         A            E 
Serving the booze and collecting the dough 
What a stir they would cause if they ever should tell

On the night after pay day there's fun and romance 
                                  A           E 
It's a night for the families to sing and to dance 
You can let down your hair and come out of your shell

And if you listen to the bosses when the night's getting late 
                                    A           E 
On the progress they're making the best in the state 
They'd be finished this line and this maintenance as well

On stayers like Cass and old grader Jack 
And they tell me old Coster gives everyone hell

When this job is finished we'll pack up and go 
                                A          E 
To another construction still chasing big dough 
But where ever I wander my memory will dwell

On those happy days in Three Rivers Hotel 

Repeat 1st verse twice- After 1st time yell (yeah come on Coster)
