​G'Day Blue

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Australia Is His Name (1985).

Now Blue is known around the town as a real decent bloke,
He could take it on the chin when the chips are down
And he could always take a joke,
You can pick him for miles by his friendly smiles,
He always gave a few,
With the colour of his hair he had names to spare
But we all called him Blue.
Ah G'day Blue, how they treatin' you, come an' have yourself a beer,
We all feel better when you're around so drag yourself up here,
You're never on the bite and you're never a skite,
You're as dinkum as can be,
You're a good mate Blue, and I'm tellin' you, you can have this one on me.
When I stand around and listen to the things that people say,
I reckon if there were more like Blue, we'd be better off today,
When the boots go in Blue will give the grin an' give it to you straight,
He sees only good like all of us should and he'll stand up for a mate.
We all say "G'day Blue, how they treatin' you, come an' have yourself a beer,
We all feel better when you're around so drag yourself up here,
You're never on the bite and you're never a skite,
You're as dinkum as can be,
You're a good mate Blue, and I'm tellin' you, you can have this one on me."
Now Blue's not ashamed to let you see the gentle side of man,
He'll offer his seat to the fairer sex anytime he can,
For he'll never stare an' he doesn't swear when a lady's walkin' by,
These things we mention ove' again an' hold our heads up high.
Ah G'day Blue, how they treatin' you, come an' have yourself a beer,
We all feel better when you're around so drag yourself up here,
You're never on the bite and you're never a skite,
You're as dinkum as can be,
You're a good mate Blue, and I'm tellin' you, you can have this one on me.
Australia need more men like Blue to lift us up once more,
An' our comradeship an' will to win has crumbled on the floor,
Our 'Fair Go, mate' s gone out the gate, we no longer seem to care,
Should the likes of Blue ever meet with you I reckon you will declare.
And you'll say "G'day Blue, how they treatin' you, come an' have yourself a beer,
We all feel better when you're around so drag yourself up here,
You're never on the bite and you're never a skite,
You're as dinkum as can be,
You're a good mate Blue, and I'm tellin' you, you can have this one on me;
Ah, You're a good mate Blue, and I'm tellin' you, you can have this one on me."
