Bb
Galleries of pink galahs,

Eb Bb
Crystal nights with diamond stars,

Cm Bb
Apricots preserved in jars,

Cm7 F7sus4 Bb
That’s my home.

Bb
Land of oceans in the sun,

Eb Bb
Purple hazes, river gum,

Cm Bb
Breaks your heart when rain won’t come,

Cm7 F7sus4 Bb
It breaks your heart.

Bb Eb/Bb
It takes a harsh and cruel drought

Bb Eb/Bb
To sort the weaker saplings out,

Bb Eb/Bb
It makes room for stronger trees

Bb
Maybe that’s what life’s about.

Bb Eb/Bb
Winter’s come, the hills are brown,

Bb Eb/Bb
Shops are closed, the blinds are down.

Bb Eb/Bb
Everybody’s leaving town,

Bb
They can’t go on.
