~ my outback shack ~

Take the long track to the outback shack
where the sun beats down on the hard red ground
where the black crows caw and your skin’s red raw
and water’s more precious than gold

Life becomes real and the aches you feel
let you know you’re alive and survival’s your drive
for you wont let it beat you you wont give in
for out here life has a tight hold

And there’s no time for gameboys or watching prissy tame boys
no space for big brother, neighbours, idol, other
you gotta go bring in the mob and do a hundred other jobs
between pre dawn and long after dusk

The manager at the bank thinks that you’re a lower rank
and he tries every day really hard to make you pay
but he really doesn’t need the place, the stock or seed
and you’d never give it up lads for even if it looks bad
the fluid in your veins is really dust!
