SONG OF THE INLAND RAIN
(J.Sorensen/R.Montgomery)

There's a rain that falls when the sheep are dead
Away on the wide norí-western plains
When storm clouds gather overhead,
And the west is red e'er the daylight wanes

Rain on the inland ranges
Rain on the parching plains
All day long the grey rain falls
On a land where it seldom rains
Over the wilting wilderness
Where drought's grim curse has lain
Long overdue, God's blessing falls
In the swirl of the inland rain

When the hills rise blue in the haze of noon
And the heat waves dance o'er the stony plain
When red at night hangs the nor'-west moon
When men despair, comes inland rain

Rain on the ironstone ridges
Cool life-giving rain
Day and night it patters down
Till the rivers run again
Sweet is the drowsy cadence
To those whose hopes seemed vain
That steady drone on the station roof
The song of the inland rain
