All Over Oz

I started out from Coogeewhen I was just a ladwe`d take the train to anywhere,my brothers, mum and dad.Then dad came home from work one dayand said he`d bought a car,so I soon had the maps outplanning travels near and far.The seasons didn`t bother ushot or cold , we didn`t careas long as we were on the roadand heading to somewhere.We`d pack the car with camping gearwhich wasn`t much to startbut as the years went by,we had enough to fill a cart.At first we only toured the state,there`s plenty there to seefrom Wanaaring down to Begaand Wentworth to Moree.

Then when I got my own car
far off places beckoned me,
the rainforests and the mountains,
the deserts to the sea.

Now I`ve travelled across the countryto places near and far,From the Kimberley to Wilson`s PromCape York to Marble Bar.From Murray Bridge to Timber Creekand south to Wallendbeen,from Esperance to the back o` Bourkeand all those towns between.To Isa on the Leichardtand Bullarah on the Gwydirto places where no river runsway out near dusty Trida.Steep Point down to HobartQueenstown to Rabbit Flat,through bulldust, mud and waterfrom Birdsville to Ballarat.But now that I`m a carerlooking after dear old mum,my roving days are haltedfor the moment my travellings done.But out beyond the great dividethe outback still beckons meand one day when the time is right,I`ll be there again, just wait and see.
