Lyrics

We buried a man in the scrub today
In the desert lands vast expanse
Was only a mile from a government bore
And we've buried men like this before, in the land of no second chance
We saw where his tracks had left the
road as the lost will do in a trance
Perhaps a mirage had lewered him on till his mind was
crazed and his reasoning gone, in the land of no second chance

Mother nature she reins o'er her lonely expanse in
this hard dry land of no second chance, no second chance

He'd come outback from a city home for adventure and romance,
but his car broke down in a patch of scrub between
Birdsville and Betoota Pub in the land of no second chance
And he drove away from Betoota Pub they say without a second glance
Ignoring advice that bushmen gave and now there's
another lonely grave in the land of no second chance
The circling crows and hawks announce his resting place in advance
A stranger had disobeyed the law that nature
makes and fools ignore in the land of no second chance
We found his car where a stone had
pierced his petrol tank like a lance
So he started walking like others had done in the blinding
dust and the scorching sun, in the land of no second chance

Mother nature she reigns,
o'er her lonely expanse in this hard dry
land of no second chance, no second chance

The tranquil moon light seems to mock the devilish heatwaves dance,
around the grave all night and day,
while hot winds sigh and tree tops
sway, in the land of no second chance
Oh we buried this man in the scrub
today in the desert lands vast expanse
Was only a mile from a government bore but we've buried men
like, well, like him before in the land of no second chance

Mother nature she reigns,
o'er her lonely expanse in this hard dry land of no second chance
Mother nature she reigns,
o'er her lonely expanse in this hard dry land of no second chance
