You look out your window at the cold grey dawn
It's seven o'clock on a Monday morning
Pour a cup of coffee, better make it a strong one
Weather man on the radio says
It's going to rain and it's going to blow
But i'll be all right, it'll be all right, it'll be all right in the long run

Australia marched out of Vietnam
Out on the streets against Uncle Sam,
We won the fight, it was a long one
Uranium demo the other day
One of my mates got dragged away
As they slammed the door I heard her say
It'll be all right in the long run

Italian bloke who works with me
We swap laughs and company
And he slapped me on the back
Said "You're wrong, son
This isn't the land I was told it would be
It's not so equal and not so free
But i'll be all right, it'll be all right, it'll be all right in the long run"

From the shadow of history a convict screams
The shearers curse, the people dream
We've taken some right turns
They've been the wrong ones
Troop ships leave and the headlines blaze
Australia remembers happier days
And the faith lives on within the haze
It'll be all right in the long run

So you sit in your camp and you stare at the fire
The doubts drop away as the hopes get higher
And you sing to yourself
It'll be all right, it'll be all right in the long run

And the sun gives ground to a long cold night
You screw your courage for another night
But you know in your heart
But i'll be all right, it'll be all right, it'll be all right in the long run

And the sun streams in with power and might
And you look at your kids in a different light
And you know in your heart as you kiss them goodnight
It'll be all right in the long run.
