lyrics

Down and down the echoes go
Round and round the waters flow
The sun rang out across the fields
And the guns made the river glow

When I enlisted
And I could hardly stand
When the railway left me here
I slept inside
A tent torn up by wind
And then
The dawn rose slowly
Across my tattooed skin

Down and down the echoes go
Round and round the waters flow
The sun rang out across the fields
And the guns made the river glow

When I enlisted
They gave me guns and beer
And I could hardly stand
When the railway left me here
I slept inside
A tent torn up by wind
And then
The dawn rose slowly
Across my tattooed skin

By the embankment
Leaning on my knee
I waited for the enemy
I could hear
In the richocheting sky
Words I should have wrote you
When I had time.

about

The Dust Revival Band Melbourne, Australia

"The Dust Revival Band incorporate psychedelia, rich vocal harmonies and guitar interplay in a folk rock vein that owes a debt to a wide range of 1960s West Coast pop and garage rock, from the Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to The Mamas and The Papas... an intoxicating mixture of country twang, melancholy folk and urban scrawl..” Terrascope.co.uk ... more
