"My Island Home" as written by and Neil Murray....
Six years I've been in the desert
And every night I dream of the sea
They say home is where you find it
But will this place ever satisfy me
For I come from the saltwater people
We always lived by the sea
Now I'm out here west of Alice Springs
With a wife and a family

And my Island Home
My Island Home
My Island Home is a waiting for me

In the evenin' the dry wind blows from the hills and across the plain
I close my eyes and I'm standin' in a boat on the sea again
And I'm holding that long turtle spear
And I feel I'm close now to where it must be
And My Island Home is a waitin' for me

For I come from the saltwater people
We always lived by the sea
Now I'm out here west of Alice Springs
With a wife and a family
And my Island Home
My Island Home
My Island Home is a waiting for me

In the evenin' the dry wind blows from the hills and across the plain
I close my eyes and I'm standin', in a boat on the sea again
And I'm holdin' that long turtle spear
And I feel I'm close now, to where it must be
And My Island Home is a waitin' for me
