I was born in a hat town, raised on the Warrego 
It's hard out here but you tough it out like an old brigalow 
From the back of the channel country across the western plains 
The roads are straight & dusty and the folks are much the same 
CHORUS: 
Roots run strong and deep out here in a hat town 
And we'll carry on down through the years in a hat town 
Well it might be Thargomindah, it might be Barclay Downs 
If there's a pub and a store and not much more 
You're livin' in an old hat town. 
Stuck out in a heat haze on a half mile sixty zone 
Just a rag-tag bunch of buildings made of wood and tin and stone 
But there's a swag of stories and most of them are true 
Of how the locals passed the hat around and pulled each other through 
REPEAT CHORUS 
SOLO:   
Well we're rouseabouts and drovers 
We're bushies tried and true 
And we're out here for the long haul 
We're not just blowin' through 
CHORUS: 
Roots run strong and deep out here in a hat town 
And we'll carry on down through the years in a hat town 
From the back of the channel country and across the dusty downs 
If there's a pub and a store and not much more 
You're livin' in an old hat town. 
Ooooh 
Yodeleyeeeeeeee 
Livin' in a hat town, livin' in an old hat town 
Yodeleyeeeeeeee 
Livin' in a hat town, livin' in an old hat town
