Praying for Rain

     G                D           C
There's no stars in the sky tonight 
    G                   Am.            D
And the Stockman has the eye on the change
    G           D           C           G     
The ants are busy you can smell the 'gidgee'
        C                G             C            G                   
There's a warm breeze blowing like summer's coming early
        C         D              G
And Longreach is praying for rain.


The family is out on the Veranda
And there's lightening way out in the West
To have relief from our hopes and fears
How it would bring mum and dad to tears
It's the best sign of moisture we've had for years
And Longreach is praying for rain

C             D       C               D
Longreach is praying, send it down Huey,
C              D           G
Longreach is praying for rain

(One verse of musical interlude only)


Saw the weatherman on the ABC
A good sign it's raining in Alice
There is a song of hope with spring in the Lee
Grandma's been complaining about the pain in her knee
And Longreach is praying for rain

There's dust sweeping up of the clay pan
And the horses are frisky tonight
Awaken good spirits with a change in the weather
Squatters and workers all drinking together
The thunderclaps getting louder and louder
And Longreach is praying for rain
Longreach is praying, send it down Huey
Longreach is playing for rain
