lyrics

You are saltwater people you are strong
all the answers you need to survive you just look around
it’s there all along

I see a woman out fishing she’s got young ones by her knees
she’s got a fire in the bottom there cooking
something for them to eat

Tar-ra, Tullagalla

A new mother she’s just given birth, has her child beside her
she ties a piece of her own hair
on the little finger

After some time the tip drops off. It is a gift to the sea
When that daughters goes fishing for the first time
her first fish is a gift for that fee

Tar-ra, Tullagalla


When the boy’s getting older, steps on into the light
Cammeraigal man comes from the north
he does the law right

All the men have one front tooth, the other one’s gone
they’ve got scars on the bodies now
drawn before dawn

Yoo-Lahng, Wokamagully

The old line of the foreshore, it’s down there by the Quay
it winds it way under the concrete and feet
for those who want to see

And the stories are beautiful now, If you’re lucky to hear
Just find someone who is willing to share
someone to walk you round there

Tar-ra, Tullagalla
Yoo-Lahng, Wokamagully
