Lyrics

CRAZY COWBOY
By Dana Lyons

A hundred miles of flat land’s just enough for me to breathe
Where the grassland goes forever through a tapestry of trees
The sunburnt barbed wire fence posts and the rusted farm machines
And beneath the cracking, empty lake the desert holds the seeds

The long dead ancient gidgee silhouettes an epic sky
Upon the dam, the highest point, I see a thousand miles
And every animal and bird will gather here at dusk
Around the precious water hole, I’m watching from the brush

I am a cowboy, and they say I’m crazy
But I live for silence and the touch of my fine lady
Breathe the clean air, I drink the water
And at night I fight the madness of a culture going down

A hundred miles of flat land’s just enough for me to breathe
And fifty parrots pink and gray are laughing in the trees
The dingo’s desperate howling to the farm dog who’s in heat
As one hundred thousand nightmares fade away

I shot my TV, I burned my taxes
And I’m living in a shack about a hundred miles from town
Here in the desert, they cannot find me
And at night I fight the madness of a culture going down

A night sky full of endless stars with only you and me
The crackle of the campfire and the brush of blowing breeze
The blanket round our shoulders fending off the winter freeze
As a hundred thousand nightmares fade away
