I Love A Sunburnt Country Song Lyrics

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins
Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it
My love is otherwise

I love a sunburnt country
A land of sweeping plains
Of ragged mountain ranges
Of droughts and flooding rains
I love her far horizons
I love her jewel-sea
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!

A stark white ring-barked forest
All tragic to the moon
The sapphire-misted mountains
The hot gold hush of noon
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil
And orchids deck the tree-tops
And ferns the warm dark soil

Core of my heart my country!
Her pitiless blue sky
When sick at heart around us
We see the cattle die –
But then the grey clouds gather
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army
The steady soaking rain

Core of my heart my country!
Land of the Rainbow Gold
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold –
Over the thirsty paddocks
Watch after many days
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze

An opal-hearted country
A wilful lavish land –
All you who have not loved her
You will not understand –
Though earth holds many splendours
Wherever I may die
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly

I Got Wasted Like All My Potential Lyrics
