DRY RIVER BED
(Pigram Brothers)

When you’re drifting on the ocean
And the sea is a perfect blue
But those storm clouds on the horizon
Are keeping you true to who are you

Chorus
So take me away ‘cross the spinifex plains
Where the true mirage never ends
And the smell of the rain is a long way away
Lay me down on a dry river bed

Don't have no white picket fence
Don't have no green English lawn
Just got heat waves dancing for me
On the red dirt where I was born

Chorus

Feel the heart of my country
Beating to them lonely blues
Gotta get back there, gotta get back there
Gotta get back there real soon

Chorus
