Slim Dusty - A Prouder Man Than You lyrics

If you fancy that your people come from better stock
than mine,
If you hint at higher breedin' by a word or by a sign
If you're proud because of fortune or the clever things
you do
Then I'll play no second fiddle, I'm a prouder man than
you.

If you think that your profession has the more
gentility
And that you are condescending to be seen along with me
If you notice that I'm shabby while your clothes are
spruce and new
You have only got to hint it, I'm a prouder man than
you.

[Instrumental]

If you have a swell companion when you see me on the
street
And you think that I'm too common for your toney friend
to meet
So that I don't in pass in closely, fail to come within
your view
Then be blind to me forever, I'm a prouder man than
you.

If you're character be blameless, if you're outward
past be clean
While you know my antecendants, are not what they
should have been
Do not risk contamination, save you name whate'er you
do
Birds o' a feather fly together, I'm a prouder bird
than you.

[Instrumental}

If you fancy that your people come from better stock
than mine
If you hint at higher breedin', by a word or by a sign
If you're proud because of fortune or the clever things
you do
Then I'll play no second fiddle, I'm a prouder man than
you.

If you think that your profession has the more
gentility
And that you are condescending to be seen along with me
If you notice that I'm shabby while your clothes are
spruce and new
You have only got to hint it, I'm a prouder man than
you.
