Tears for law

Tears for law

Driving down the dusty road
   4 wheel drive locked all the way
   destination Dhanayangala
   passing families on the way
   tonight we’ll be sitting around
   talking till the campfire dies
   feeling the evening breeze
   eating the catch of the day
   just a few miles down the track
   is the Garrathiya run
   Gunumarra country
  
   Wanygurrkurr; Dhamungura; Djulwanbirr
  
   Mystery woman weeping tears of pride and joy
   Sound of thunder in the sky
   Turning into the falling rain
  
   Ganuru gay Milkarri gay Dhakiyanda Barangurrthun
   Ranggurrminythu Djalpinydhu Guyupayu
  
   We know they know all people accept
   Sacred history of the rock
   What has always been ours
   Was determined by the floods
   and the tears the tears they cried
   Madiwirr Liyawanhurr wisdom
   Passed down through the ages
   Mystery woman weeping tears of pride and joy
   Sound of thunder in the sky
   Turning into the falling rain
   Mystery woman weeping tears of pride and joy
   Sound of thunder in the sky
   Turning into the falling rain
