lyrics

FARMER’S DAUGHTER
(ROBYN MARTIN)
CHORDS: A D C#m E F#m

My mother is a farmer
My dad is a father
Both work with heart and hand
Great grandmother and grandfather
Had help to find the water
And then they cleared the land

My sisters and my brother
Shared night shift on the tractor
Swags and camp cooked chiko rolls
Then my Aunty and my Uncle
Worked the land and cut the stubble
We headed north, Dad was trucking sugar cane

And the mallee burns slow
Time for all the Slim Dusty songs we know
And the mallee is old
We know who we are from the stories told

I only have one brother, it wouldn’t help to have another
The hurt comes from losing one you love
Now the farm is on the market, after 100 years of harvest
And I wonder is it too late now for me

And the mallee burns slow
We sing all the Joy McKean songs we know
And the mallee is old
We know who we are from the stories told

11,000 acres, our neighbour, he signed the papers
And the mallee fire warmed us all night long
My ancestors felt close by as we sang up to the night sky
Still the Nungas live the dreaming in the town

Its our time to write the story
We all must share the pen
And I’m learning, as I listen, who I am

And the mallee burns slow
We sing all the Coloured Stone songs we know
And the mallee burns slow
We sing all our favourite songs we know
And the mallee is old
We know who we are from the stories told

They weave tales of farmers, hippies, mothers, sea farers, history, lovers, the ordinary, and the mysterious.
