Wondrous Land

1. When I first came to this wondrous land, I was not a wealthy man,

So I got myself a shack, And I called it Break'n My Back.

So I called my shack Break'n My Back,


But the land was sweet and good,

And I did what I could.


2. When I first came to this wondrous land, I was not a wealthy man,

So I got myself a cow, And I called her No Milk Now

So I called my shack Break'n my Back,


But the land was sweet and good

And I did what I could.


3. … Got myself a duck and I called her Out of Luck


4. … Got myself a pig and I called her Doing a Jig


5. … Got myself a wife and I called her Love of My Life


6. … Got myself a son and I called him My Work's Done
