lyrics

PORT AUGUSTA

Wind it howled as the sun went down
Pulled in slow on the edge of town
To sleep the night and wait our turn
A thousand miles from home

Call of the west, a great unknown
Full blooded words and an undertow
That took us north, took our breath
To where the spirit crows

We made our choice to work it out
Baited luck and let go of doubt
Port Augusta
Took a turn for the best
Or at least not for the worse
Port Augusta

Blood red sky, coffee pot
Milling over all we’ve got
Your hands are cold. My head is hot
With thoughts of yesterday

The army emerged, their numbers strong
Pointed their guns in front of the car
I turned to you in a state of shock
But you were fast asleep

We made our choice to work it out
Baited luck and let go of doubt
Port Augusta
Took a turn for the best
Or at least not for the worse
Port Augusta

Not much comes for those who wait
Except for dreams in a filtered state
I’ve waited long and my thirst is great
Oh deliver me now
