Mr Rose the cattleman wont let the miners on his land
He says this land is more than me I’m married to the property
Six generations call this home and this is where I’ll rest my bones
Beyond the tablelands you’ll see a line of blurred infinity
The truth walks slowly in the old man’s eyes
The truth walks slowly in the countryside

(the up and down the here and now the why the what the when the how)

the truth walks slowly
I’ll sting and bite and scratch the hand of those who’d come and waste this land
Their eyes are void their hearts are blank as empty as my watertank
I know this country rock and stream my sweat has washed the mountain clean
Now I am forced to make a stand cos I’m the one who loves this land

The truth walks slowly convictions slide
The truth walks slowly ‘long the riverside
The truth walks slowly it smells like dirt
the truth walks slowly there’ll be no mining in our rich black earth

The truth walks slowly
seems our lives go flashing by like lightning
seems these times are compromised by fighting
seems these times will be defined by coal seam mining
The truth walks slowly but greed runs fast
There’ll be no mining in our golden grass.
