Kernaghan Tania – A Bushman Can't Survive lyrics

A city girl is happy with her friends and family life
Appreciates a wine with him at night
She tries to find the sparkle she searchs but it's gone
With lots of love she hopes he'll be alright
Her man has gone all quiet e's not at ease
He doesn't feel at home he's hard to please
He gets itchy feet he's tired of noises in the street
He needs to walk for hours through the trees
No a bushman can't survive on city lights
Opera rock and roll and height of heights
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
Shimmers down the inland river flow
Out there where the yellow belly bite
He's working with his hands today on a building site
He can smell the cypress on the floor
It takes him to a sandy ridge out amongst the pines
No shearing no ploughing anymore
His kelpie dog is tired and fast asleep
Tired of searching gardens for the sheep
His mater doesn't whistle tunes he's not in the mood
His love for open spaces runs too deep
He tries to please his woman the lady of his life
He's standing at a party with a plate
She finds him on the balcony staring at the moon
An old familiar face he can relate
His moon shines on the silver brigalow
Shimmers down the inand river
Out there where the yelloe belly bite
