SONG LYRICS

SANCTUARY OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS
© R.J.Newton 2014

G
I HAVE CLIMBED TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP
C
SEEN THE CLOUDS FULL OF THEIR RAINDROPS
G D7
I HAVE HEARD THE PLAINTIVE CALL OF THE BLACK SHOULDERED KITE
G
I HAVE SEEN THE SUMMER HAZE OF DISTANT PLAINS
C
HEARD THE WHOOPING TRUMPET OF THE SARUS CRANE
G D7 G
AND MY SANCTUARY IS FOUND UNDER THE SOUTHERN CROSS

G
CUSTODIAN, THE ABORIGINES
C
NOW SHARED BY MANY FROM OVER THE SEAS
G D7
WHO CALL THIS CONTINENT LAND THEIR HOME
G
FROM GOLD RUSH DAYS TO PROSPERITY
C
WE FIND OUR STRENGTH IN THE LAND AND SEA
G D7 G
AND OUR SANCTUARY IS UNDER THE SOUTHERN CROSS

C G
UNDER THE STARS A LAND SO FREE
C AM D7
UNDER THE STARS SHINES OUR DIGNITY
C G
UNDER THE STARS WE CAN HOLD OUR HEAD UP HIGH
D7 G
WE CAN BE PROUD OF WHO WE ARE – – UNDER THOSE STARS

WE HAVE CAMPED ALONG THOSE OUTBACK ROADS
COOKED OUR MEALS ON OPEN STOVES
AND LAID DOWN AT NIGHT TO STUDY THE MILKYWAY
FROM THE TOP OF CAPE YORK PENNINSULAR
TO THE SOUTH COAST OF TASMANIA
WE FIND OUR SANCTUARY UNDER THE SOUTHER CROSS

DESCRIPTION
This song came as travelling Australia and seeing the beauty of the country
