    Lyrics

    The late George Woolnough
    Worked on High Street
    And lived on manors
    52 years he sat on his veranda
    And made his saddles
    and if you had questions
    About sheep or flowers or dogs
    You just ask the saddler
    He lived without sin
    They're building a library for him

    Time is a traveller
    Tenterfield Saddler turn your head
    Ride again Jackaroo
    Think I see kangaroo up ahead

    The son of George Woolnough
    Went off and got married
    And had a war baby
    But something was wrong
    And it's easier to drink than go crazy
    And if there were questions about why
    The end was so sad
    Well George had no answers about why a son
    Ever have need of a gun

    Time is a traveller
    Tenterfield Saddler turn your head
    Ride again Jackaroo
    Think I see kangaroo up ahead

    The grandson of George
    Has been all around the world
    And lives in no special place
    Changed his last name
    And he married a girl with an interesting face
    He'd almost forgotten them both
    Because in the life that he leads
    There's nowhere for George
    And his library
    Or the son with his gun
    To belong
    Except in this song

    Time is a traveller
    Tenterfield Saddler turn your head
    Ride again Jackaroo
    Think I see kangaroo up ahead

    Time is a medler
    Tenterfield saddler make your bed
    Fly away cockatoo
    Down on the ground emu up ahead

    Time is a tale teller
    Tenterfield saddler turn your head
    Ride again Jackaroo
    Think I see kangaroo up ahead

    Time is a tale teller
    Tenterfield saddler turn your head
    Ride again Jackaroo
    Think I see kangaroo up ahead
