In The Valley
My grandfather went down with the Montevideo The rising sun sent him floating to his rest And his wife fled south to Sydney seeking out safe harbour A north shore matron she became with some paying guests My father went down with the curse of big cities Traffic tolls and deadlines took him to his peace Now Bob Dyer glued us to our seats And lawns were always victa neat Whilst menzies fawned at royal feet do you remember In the valley I walk I took some comfort there In the valley I walk cold comfort I can hear you talk In the valley I walk - who will take me there When my mother went down it was a stiff arm from Hades Life surprises and tears you like the southerly She always welcomed the spring always welcomed the stranger I don't see too many around like this Oh no, that's what I'm looking for, year, what we're looking for In the valley I walk who will take me there In the valley I walk cold comfort I can hear you talk In the valley I walk I took some comfort there In the valley I walk oh rough justice I hear you talk In the valley I walk to meet my water shed I hope virtue brings its own reward And I hope the pen is mightier than any sword I hope the kids will take it slow I hope my country claims its own In the valley I walk I cried yes I cried I was down then I crawled Mercy's arms all around me when I was down there In the valley I walk do you read me they can hear me in the valley
