Slim Dusty, born David Gordon Kirkpatrick, was an Australian country music singer, songwriter and a true Aussie icon.

Slim is probably best known around the world for the 1957 song The Pub With No Beer. The pub actually exists in Taylors Arm, NSW, not far from Kempsey where Slim was born.

Wearing his trademark bush hat and his ever present guitar, Slim Dusty gave us bush ballads shaped by the land and the Aussie way of life. Often humorous, sometimes sentimental, they touched us in ways that made him finally a successful and a much loved king of country music.

Oh there’s going to be dancing and singing,
At the old homestead tonight,
Going to be carols ringing,
Through the warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s going to be an old time party
With Christmas coming soon.

Oh we wont have no sleigh ride
We’ll go swimming in the creek
But all the kids and relations
Who are staying for a week.
The campfire’s blazing rightly
Steak on the barbecue,
Welcome all the neighbours in
Were putting on a do.

There’s going to be dancing and singing
At the old homestead tonight
Going to be carols ringing,
Through he warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah,
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s going to be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon.

Oh the kids are hanging stockings,
And there’s one for me and you,
Santa’s wearing moleskins,
And a shirt of faded blue,
The kitchen tables loaded,
With ham and chicken too,
Welcome all the neighbours in,
Were putting on a do.

There’s going to be dancing and singing,
At the old homestead tonight,
Going to be carols ringing,
Through the warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah,
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s going to be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon.
Oh there’s going to be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon.
