Lyrics

Headed out to the desert from Halls Creek, turned right off the Tanami Road
Laughed with the children and sang songs telling stories from the world
Music blaring from a dark stage, we’re dancing to the Balgo boys “Cliffside Reggae”
Stars so bright in this dark dark night, Dreamtime stories unfold

Here standing in the red dust, blue skies fill our eyes
Here I’m a loving this country, found my heart in the Tanami
Here’s something about the desert, gotta reach, gotta reach up high inside
Here, this ain’t where I was born, but I feel so alive… stepping up for the ride

Just a couple of K from Mulan, on the shores of Lake Gregory, Paraku
Seabirds singing a chorus, from this salty inland sea
This black mud can heal you, bush medicine is so strong
Listening to the elders in the campfire light helps the knowledge carry on

Here standing in the red dust, blue skies fill our eyes
Here I’m a loving this country, found my heart in the Tanami
Here’s something about the desert, gotta reach, gotta reach up high inside
Here, this ain’t where I was born, but I feel so alive… stepping up for the ride
