lyrics

Drive the dividing range going home
It’s sunset and the mountains are turning purple
A silloutte of trees line the horizon
The tall dry grass a sign of drought across the darling downs

I travel with my brother and sister to the house we were born in
Still home to our folks and the memories of our childhood
We share stories from the years we’ve lost and reminisce about the past
Still bickering like children but nothing changed in our hearts

With so much changed
Many things remain the same

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed

As we arrive I recall my dreams of this place
Every inch of the landscape imprinted on my brain
This land so familiar like part of my soul
But not ours to own, even though its been so long

With so much changed
Many things remain the same

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed

The sound of the butcher birds wakes me at dawn
I take a walk to the iron gate and collect the mail
I feel small standing beside the Gore highway
Trucks approaching like a hurricane

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed
