Subject: RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia
I've just come across this rather interesting 2014 album entitled "Miscarriage of Justice" from a group of 6 x Bathurst, NSW musicians called "10th Man" (website here : http://www.10thman.com.au ). I'll post a couple of tracks.


SYDNEY TOWN

I am the modern warrior, I fight the urban sprawl
I am the lonely beggar sitting in the Pitt Street mall
I am the western suburbs, jammed up with the bogan homes
I am the hungry monster, built upon greed and sandstone

And when the sun goes down, you値l see the dark side of this town
You値l go down down down down
Down down to Sydney town
Down, to Sydney town.

Rape and pillage, it値l take your soul
It値l steal your innocence
It will take it all, it値l take it all (x2)
It値l take it all

I am the Hawkesbury River, the ghosts at Callan Park
A tattooed arm at Coogee spewed up from a tiger shark
I am James Hardie Fibro, dioxins in the bay
Shootin up at Cabramatta, having coffee in a [Bronte] Beach caf

And when the sun goes down, you値l see the dark side of this town
You値l go down down down down
Down down to Sydney town
Down, to Sydney town

Rape and pillage, it値l take your soul
It値l steal your innocence
It will take it all, it will take it all (x2)
It will take it all

I am the deals and handshakes, going down in Macquarie Street
An outrage at Mount Rennie (or Mount Penny)
I知 standing at the wharf, I知 on the beat
I am your local Westfield, an old and groaning wharf
Listen to the ghosts of the colony
Listen to us, hear us talk

And when the sun goes down, you値l see the dark side of this town
You値l go down down down down
Down down to Sydney town
Down down down down
Down, down to Sydney town

Rape and pillage, it値l take your soul
It値l steal your innocence
It will take it all, it値l take it all (x2)
It will take it all

Yeah it値l take it all, and leave you with nothing
