Lyrics

Arrived late afternoon to see long shadows on the ground
Broken gutters, rusty rooves, the windmill’s fallen down
Ring lock fences disappear Street signs show the way
There’s a bushy with a dusty hat on
Camped beside the river – it’s dry down to the core
The pub boasts EMU beer on tap – the skimpy starts at 4
5.15 still hot as hell - no sign that it will ease
And the bush flies seem to love us
Hey Oh, this much I know
I’m coming back to this one day
Something ‘bout a country town no need to lock the door
Aunty Mabel’s cousin makes a living sanding floors
He’s always at the footy and his wife ’ll cut your hair
They love their life out here
The local shop rents videos for the miners at the camp
Only 24 to choose from and the carpet smells of damp
Joanie watches midday soaps, - only 1 year left to go
Then she’s out of here
Hey Oh, this much I know
I’m coming back to this one day, I know
Hey Oh, it lives inside of me
This earth is blood I can’t bleed out - I’m free
Some down at the footy club have had a few more than they should
Friday evening happy hour, the boys are on the move
Nicole stays home to feeds the kids, she complains about her day
But she loves her man
The evening brings a summer breeze street lights flicker on
No one round to use them the utes and trucks are gone
You barely hear a whisper but the dogs still bark their tune
I’m feeling home again
Hey Oh, this much I know
I’m coming back to this one day - I know
Hey Oh, it lives inside of me
This earth is blood I can’t bleed out - I’m free
