about

Seasons cuts straight to the heart as it storms through the awkwardness of new love, the joy of a sunrise, the simplicity of swagging it out under the
stars, the darkness of depression and hope on the wings of sea-birds at Lake Eyre. All grounded in an unmistakable sense of place, Seasons speaks of the strength of community, the grit of sticking it out together, and finding that thing that sustains us through it all.

lyrics

Seasons
(Robyn Martin)
Chords: Bm D G A

She met him on the highway
She was working at the roadhouse
He shook his head and said what is this place?
She said come on then I’ll show you
And they camped out in the ranges
A single swag beneath the milky way

There is life here in the desert
It’s a sure thing that I know
But you need to carry water when you go

If you can stand the summer
And if the rain falls in the winter
If you hold your ground
When the hot northerly blows
When the sea birds land at Lake Eyre
There will be another good year
You’ll see the beauty that the seasons hold
If you call this place home

They got some acres out past Kimba
Sowed some grain and bought some sheep in
Had two kids and waited for the rain
She played darts in town on Thursdays
There was footy on the weekends
He joined the ambos and she CWA

There’s a life here in the desert
For us to build a home
All we need’s a little water and it’ll grow

If you can stand the summer
And if the rain falls in the winter
If you hold your ground
When the hot northerly blows
When the sea birds land at Lake Eyre
There will be another good year
You’ll see the beauty that the seasons hold
If you call this place home

There’s nothing like the sunrise
and the air here in the morning
She took a job in town to help with the loan
And on Friday they’re going over
to the church yard with the pastor
To send another good man off to God

There is life here in the desert
It’s a fragile thing we hold
God we need a little water for the road

If you can stand the summer
And if the rain falls in the winter
If you hold your ground
When the hot northerly blows
When the sea birds land at Lake Eyre
There will be another good year
You’ll see the beauty that the seasons hold
If you call this place home
I call this place home
