TamthebamfraeScotland Lyr Req: Welcome All to Broome (John Williamson) (4) Lyr Add: WELCOME ALL TO BROOME (John Williamson) 20 Jan 01

Hello Doug.

There's a song book by John Williamson called True Blue,

And the words are

Well I grabbed m'camera, grabbed m'zoom,
left m'guitar in m'hotel room,
A few days here I must presume,
To Know enough about life in Broome.
Well I met this dark-eyed local girl
she has no time for mother pearl
for golf course and palm trees
the local girl likes none of these.

She likes red sand and blue skies
Bush tucker in the trees
Give me wet season if you please
Sandpiper, gentle breeze

Well I talked to a man who has big dreams,
of multi million dollar schemes,
of tourists pouring in, in teams,
pockets bulging at their seams.
well the holy dollar plays the tune
orginal people movin soon
all gone out to desert moon
far away, away.
