Lyrics

RAINING ON THE ROCK

Played in D with capo across bottom 5 strings

E F#m7 F#m7 E
E F#m7 F#m7 E HOLD E TILL VERSE

E F#m7
Pastel red to burgundy and spinifex to gold,
F#m7 E
We've just come out of the Mulga where the plains forever roll.
E F#m7
And Albert Namatjira has painted all the scenes,
F#m7 E
And a shower has changed the lustre of our land.

CHORUS
E F#m7 E
And it's raining on the Rock, In a beautiful country,
F#m7 E
And I'm proud to travel this big land, Like an Aborigine.
F#m7 E
And it's raining on the Rock What an almighty sight to see,
F#m7 E
And I'm wishing and I'm dreaming that you were here with me.

E F#m7
Everlasting daisies and a beautiful desert rose
F#m7 E
Where does their beauty come from noone knows.
E F#m7
I could ask the wedge-tail but he's away too high,
F#m7 E
I wonder if he understands it's wonderful to fly.

CHORUS + SOLO

E F#m7
It cannot be described with a picture,
F#m7 E
The mesmerising colours of the Olgas.
E F#m7
Or the grandeur of the Rock
F#m7 E
Uluru has power!

CHORUS + SOLO
