This is also on Spotify:

HOMESTEAD OF MY DREAMS
As recorded by Smoky Dawson on "Homestead of my Dreams" (2005)

Sun's up and shinin'
And I'm up and ridin'
On that old bush mountain track.
I got a feelin'
In my heart strangely stealin':
The high country's callin' me back.

Old mem'ries haunt me.
My restless mind taunts me
To relive my life, it seems,
Back in the saddle
Musterin' cattle
At the homestead of my dreams.

High up above me an eagle is flyin'.
The mountains reach up to the sky.
Far down below a river is windin'
Where that old River Murray in a hurry goes by.

Where are the riders,
Those reckless high-fliers
Who once shared my hopes and schemes?
In young idle fancy
We'd be ridin' with Clancy
To the homestead of my dreams.

The sun is descendin',
Another day endin'
In a blaze of crimson gold.
Down in the valley
The mountain men rally
Recounting the good times of old.

Stirrin' the embers,
A bushman remembers
Those wonderful days now gone,
When the mountains were ringing
With laughter and singing,
A life full of mem'ries and song.

Storm clouds are massin'.
The lightnin' is flashin'.
A fireball lights up the sky.
A loud clap of thunder,
I wake from my slumber
As the roar of the traffic in Sydney goes by.

Must have been dozin',
My fantasies rovin'
Through hills and rippling streams.
I'm goin' back
Down that old beaten track
To the homestead of my dreams.
If I want to go back,
I'll just take a nap
To the homestead of my dreams.

Thanks for introducing me to Smokey Dawson. Been enjoying listening to him and to covers for a bit since opening this thread.
