It’s Raining On The Rock

04 Jun

This is a song by one of Australias great balladeers

John Williamson and is written of Uluru which is a large rock situated in the very centre of Australia about 400k from Alice Springs

The rock is considered a sacred site and plays a large part in Aboriginal culture It is truely a spectacular sight to see as it changes colors in all seasons and especially on a daily basis with the setting of the sun

Enjoy the music and words and enjoy the video Cheers

Emu

Pastel red to burgundy and spinifex to gold,
We’ve just come out of the Mulga where the plains forever roll.
And Albert Namatjira has painted all the scenes,
And a shower has changed the lustre of our land.
And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock
What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me.
Everlasting daisies and a beautiful desert rose
Where does their beauty come from heaven knows.
I could ask the wedge-tail but he’s away too high,
I wonder if he understands it’s wonderful to fly.
It cannot be described with a picture,
The mesmerising colours of the Olgas.
Or the grandeur of the Rock
Uluru has power!
And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock
What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me
