Outback

Image By Dark Blue Knight


I'm in the land Down Under,
And a'way outback,
As I make my way so slowly,
Along that dusty track.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

For there are no paved roads,
Where I do tread,
As I search for work,
To earn my daily bread.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

Have no idea,
Where I'm going to go,
Because to work the land,
Is the only thing I know.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

I've shorn some sheep,
And milked some cows,
Because way back then,
I was just taught how.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

There was work a plenty,
For the likes of me,
And my general life,
Did feel so free.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

But times have changed,
And it's all machines,
In all those places,
Where men had been.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

So to the land,
I have to say goodbye,
Head for the city,
And my luck do try.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

So many people,
I then do see,
But none do stop,
And say hello to me.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

There's so much traffic,
Upon the street,
And rushing crowds,
Make me move my feet.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

I'm not used to this,
For my life was slow,
I took my time,
When I had to go.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

So I turn around,
And head back again,
To join once more,
Those outback men.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

I'd rather sit,
By a creek that's dry,
And just watch life,
As it passes by.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

See the birds,
Sit in the tree,
Makes me feel Australian,
That's what I want to be.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

If I should stay,
As I should do,
I'm bound to share,
With a kangaroo.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

Or perhaps instead,
Of the kangaroos,
Across the plains,
I'll see emus.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

For they to,
Do live outback,
As they race beside,
That dusty track.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

So there's not much work,
Little to be done,
But life outback,
Will always be my home.

Divider By dark Blue Knight

And to live out here,
Is what I want to do,
Because I'm Australian,
Through and through.
