The poem...

20 clicks fom Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
20 clicks from Ouyen
And I got Panitya Pride
See the ghost of a cocky
Singing Lord with me abide
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side

20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
There’s a gambler on the radio
Making line bets on the side
I think I might remove my stack
But he says just let it ride
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side

20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
20 clicks from Ouyen
I got an Indian spirit guide!
He’s bustin’ through the ether
Seeking Toussel’s pale bride
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side

20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
There’s a burning shed in distance
And life’s leaving on the tide
There’s the ruin of a hut
Where a shearer’s widow cried
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side

20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
Flowers in the windscreen
The desert they belie
A swagman in the rearview
Drinking metho on the sly
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side

20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
The fuel gauge says I’m empty
And Texaco’s high and wide
The truckers think I’m finished
But I’ll just let her glide
20 clicks from Ouyen
On the Murrayville side
