Key: 

Intro: G#m C#m G#m Verse C#m B A C#m I was born in the bush near old Alice Springs, as far as you get from the sea. C#m B A C#m My mother was a fighter, my daddy was too. He never knew a bastard like me. C#m B A C#m My brothers and sisters are scattered like the wind, from the desert and the hills to the sea. C#m E B A C#m Much too young, many died, but I have survived. So lucky, a bastard like me.
C#m B A C#m Oooh, oooh. So lucky, a bastard like me. E B A C#m I have survived a hell of a life. Nobody knows a bastard like me.
Verse E B A B C#m Call me a stray, a dog every day. Call me a mongrel half-breed. E B C#m Mongrels are strong, so you take me on. Watch out for a bastard like me.
C#m B A C#m Oooh, oooh. You better watch out for a bastard like me. E B A C#m I fuoght all the way. I fight every day. You can't stop a bastard like me.
Interlude B A C#m E B A C#m Verse C#m E B A C#m I've taken my licks, I've taken my kicks. I am a man of degree. E B A C#m I wear the scars, I earned them so hard. Every day in the lucky country.
C#m B A C#m Oooh, oooh. every day in the lucky country. C#m E B A C#m I've taken my licks. I've kicked against the pricks. Don't try and stop...a bastard like me.
