about

Drought is a real issue in this country. Financial problems often lead to an alarmingly high number of suicides in our rural areas.

lyrics

In an old house on top of the hill
An old man sits on the verandah, still
He looks out now, across the dry land
And remembers when he had a plan.

He'd walk along, his heart was skipping
Young wife by his side, food stacked in his kitchen
Now interrupted only by the grumbling
His stomach is empty, his home is now empty

He lost it all
The day the rain went away
He lost it all
The banks are screaming for their money
He lost it all
All innocence left him today

He stared down at the spot near the tree
Where his children used to play
They grew up and shipped out, now strangers coz he
Started taking it out on the family

Times were tough, neighbours were leaving
The last family here, fighting for salvation
The ground is cracking, the sun dried the well and
Now nothing is growing, all life is retreating

He lost it all
The day the rain went away
He lost it all
The banks are screaming for their money
He lost it all
All innocence left him today

Oh savage land, the impact of mother natures hand
Cruel in the way, she can take the lifeblood all away
Towns made by man, being eaten up by dust and sand
She gives and she takes, finally after all these years the skies turn grey

Here comes the rain

Now all is well, the rain has come and time will tell
Relief from hell, relief via a shotgun shell
