Ive travelled across the country, on every beaten track, 
from the sugarcane to the Nullarbor plain 
and Ive been to Bourke and back,  
but there's nothing I like better 
just before Australia day 
than heading down the New England highway 
  to 3rd fret 
Got my boots on, got my hat on 
got my old guitar and a new song 
for a week I'll be where I belong 
           slide E to 3rd fret 
with big stars, golden guitars 
dream will be ours some day 
cruising the New England Highway 
They'll be busking down on Peel street 
looking for a lucky break, there's the chhok man 
and the one man band, Slim Dusty's in the cavalcade 
but there's nothing I like better 
just before Australia day 
than heading down the New England highway 
Intro 
Chorus,  
crusing down the New England Highway x2
