You probably don't need this anymore, Alison...but here goes:

SHELTER

verse 1
Now I'm drowning in the sunshine as it falls down from the sky
There's something stirring in my heart, bright colours fill my eyes
It's from here to the far horizon your beauty does unfold
And oh, you look so lovely, dressed in green and gold

verse 2
I can almost touch the ocean, shimmering in the distant haze
As I stand here on this mountain on this loveliest of days
Around 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

verse 3
To the homeless and the hungry, may we always open doors
May the restless and the weary find safe harbour on our shores
May you always be our dreamtime place, a spirit's glad release
May you always be our shelter, may we always live in peace

Darn, I just LOVE this song. Cannot understand for the life of me why it wasn't chosen as the anthem for the Sydeny 2000 Olympics. Thanks for reminding me of the name of the song - I thought it was called "Green and Gold" & have been chasing it on all my Eric albums for ages!

Although, on 2nd thoughts, after the Tampa disaster, the brown-nosing to Bush over Iraq, etc, I'm not all that sure that the last verse applies any more.

Here are the chords, if you need them (Hope they align reasonably to the lyrics):

SHELTER
(Eric Bogle)

      G            D         G                C                            G/D
I'm drowning in the sunshine as it pours down from the sky
            G             /F#      Em                      C          D
There's something stirring in my heart, bright colours fill my eyes
             G               D    G    C   
As from here to the far horizon   your beauty does unfold
       G         /F#      Em       C          D                G       /F#   Em   C   D
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

So I'm drowning in the sunshine as it pours down from the sky
There's something stirring in my heart, bright colours fill my eyes
As from here to the far horizon your beauty does unfold
       G         /F#      Em       C          D                G       /F#   Em
And oh you look so lovely, dressed in green and gold
C               D            G
Dressed in green and gold

Does anybody have the lyrics of the backup singers on "Singin the Spirit Home"? I have the live version. Who are the backup singers? Also I know the lyrics are a little different from the many other versions of the classic work song.

TSHOTSHOLOSA (Road Song) traditional

Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Wena uyabaleka kweso ntaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
Tshotsholosa, ezontaba stimela siphuma erhodesia
