By: Geoff Farmar, 2003[1]



Performed: Coalrangers, Katie Thompson, Hot Club Sandwich

A A
Well I'm holed up in Hokitika
D A
I'm living on whitebait and Monteith's bitter
A E A
That's my life without the litter that the big city brings
 
A A
Take to the highway when it calls
D A
Pull outa town when the evening falls
A E A
I got the waves, the hills, and the moon for walls, carrying my wheels along
 
Chorus
D A
This is the land
E A
I will bury with me
D A E
From the mountains in the east to the sea
D A
Where the gold lies in the river
A D
And the coal lies in the mines
D A Bm A
Where the Karamea Cowboy loves to e-ease his restless mind
 
A A
Singing songs on the merry-go-round
D A
Of crowded bars and crowded towns
A E A
Leaving Louisiana and West Coast bound, died and gone to Westport
 
A A
Away for a night, away for long
D A
It doesn't really matter how long you're gone
A E A
There comes a time when you gotta go home, to fe-ed your sanity
 
chorus
 
A A
I can't explain why I feel this way
D A
Like an east coast castaway
A E A
Too many clouds and not enough rain, to feed my soul
 
A A
So I'm holed up in Hokitika
D A
Living on whitebait and Monteith's bitter
A E A
That's my life without the litter that the big city brings
 
chorus
D A Bm A
Where the Karamea Cowboy loves to e-ease his restless mind
D A Bm A
Where the kid from Karamea loves to spend just a little time
