I’ll sing you the desert, where blackmen sailed

D G D G
Waterhole to water, where whitemen failed

D G D G
See the face of dreamers, forgotten souls

D G D G
Hear the voice of cattlemen, crackle in the coals

G
Maybe we will learn what’s written in the sand

A D G
A thousand generations living off the land

D G D G
I’ll sing you the waters, runnin’ through the town

D G D G
Wildflowers and Wattles when it settles down

G
The Outback is impossible, forever and it’s free

G A D G
No way can I find an end to what it means to me

D G
The Outback

I’ll sing you the miners, steel and coal
Opals and diamonds, silver and gold
Emeralds and sapphires, I wish for you
Holes in the outback, down below
There’s lakes and there’s rivers, caves to be found
And there’s another landscape underground

I’ll sing you the waters runnin’ through the town
Wildflowers and Wattles when it settles down
The backbone of the women who fight on and on
The healing of the sunset when all is said and done
The Outback is impossible, forever and it’s free
No way can I find an end to what it means to me

To what it means to me
The Outback
