"Cattle and Cane" as written by Robert Derwent Garth Forster and Grant William Mclennan....
I recall a schoolboy coming home
Through fields of cane
To a house of tin and timber
And in the sky
A rain of falling cinder
From time to time the waste
Memory wastes

I recall a boy in bigger pants
Like everyone
Just waiting for a chance
His father's watch
He left it in the shower
From time to time the waste
Memory wastes, the waste
Memory wastes

I recall a bigger brighter world
A world of books
And silent times in thought
And then the railroad
The railroad takes me home
Through fields of cattle
Through fields of cane
From time to time the waste
Memory wastes, the waste
Memory wastes

Further
Longer
Higher
Older
