Shelter
Eric Bogle

I'm drowning in the sunshine as it pours down from the skies
There's something stirring in my heart, bright colours fill my eyes
As from here to the far horizon your beauty does unfold
And oh, you look so lovely, dressed in green and gold

And I can almost touch the ocean, shimmering in the distant haze
As I stand here on this mountain on this loveliest day of days
Round half the world I've drifted, left no wild oats unsown
But now my view has shifted and I think I've just come home

To the homeless and the hungry, may you always open doors
May the restless and the weary find safe harbour on your shores
May you always be our dreamtime place, our spirit's glad release
May you always be our shelter, may we always live in peace

I'm drowning in the sunshine as it pours down from the skies
There's something stirring in my heart, bright colours fill my eyes
As from here to the far horizon your beauty does unfold
And oh, you look so lovely, dressed in green and gold

Here's a recording.
