When I First Came to This Land


When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I built myself a shack,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and good,and I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a wife,  
And I did what I could,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and good, and I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a donkey,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that donkey, horse gone wonkey,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and goodand I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a cow,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that cow, no milk now,  
And I called that donkey, horse gone wonkey,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh the land was sweet and good, and I did what I could.
