    Our Sunshine
    (Written by Paul Kelly and Mick Thomas).

    There came a man on a stolen horse
    And he rode right onto the page
    Burning bright but not for long
    Lit up with a holy rage
    No turning back for the child of grace
    With the blood red on his hand
    Never known to hurt a woman
    He never robbed an honest man
    His mother held in jail, his daddy dead
    And daily rising the price upon his head

    Our sunshine, our sunshine
    Through fire and flood, through tears and blood
    Through dust and mud still riding on
    Forever trapped in a suit of steel
    With the hotel burning behind
    Betrayed by his companions
    And the train waiting down the line
    Forever tall on a bareback horse
    Getting through by the skin of his teeth
    It's one more for the ladies
    Now one more for the police
    Riding all night hungry, tired and cold
    Into the misty morning
    He'll never grow old

    Our sunshine, our sunshine
    Through fire and flood, through tears and blood
    Through dust and mud still riding on
    As he stood before the judge’s chair
    He said ‘I’m free and easy-I’ll see you there!’

    Our sunshine, our sunshine
    Through fire and flood, through tears and blood
    Through dust and mud still riding on

    You Can’t Take It With You
    You might have a happy family, nice house, fine car
    You might be successful in real estate
    You could even be a football star
    You might have a prime-time TV show seen in every home and bar
    But you can't take it with you
     
    You might own a great big factory, oil wells on sacred land
    You might be in line for promotion, with a foolproof retirement plan
    You might have your money in copper, textiles or imports from Japan
    But you can't take it with you
     
    You can't take it with you though you might pile it up high
    It's so much easier for a camel to pass through a needle's eye
     
    You might have a body of fine proportion and a hungry mind
    A handsome face and a flashing wit, lips that kiss and eyes that shine
    There might be a queue all around the block
    Long before your starting time
    But you can't take it with you
     
    You might have a great reputation so carefully made
    And a set of high ideals, polished up and so well displayed
    You might have a burning love inside, so refined, such a special grade
    But you can't take it with you

    Until Death Do Them Part
    We are gathered here today to join a woman and a man
    And to witness what they say as before us they stand
    In sickness and in health, through the rich times and the poor
    They are bound to be together and to live under God's law
     
    Until death do them part
    Or the stars fall from the sky
    Until death do them part
    And the rivers all run dry
    What God has joined together
    Let no one tear apart
    They are bound to love each other
    Until death do them part
     
    We are gathered here today to join a husband and a wife
    So I call on you to pray for good luck in their life
    Through thick and through thin, through the good times and the bad
    May they always be respectful and make each other glad
     
    Until death do them part
    When God calls from on high
    Until death do them part
    And it's time to say goodbye
    What God has joined together
    Let no one tear apart
    They are bound to love each other
    Until death do them part
    Yes they are bound to be together
    Until death do them part

    I Can’t Believe We Were Married
    We danced in the kitchen on Boxing Day
    I held you swaying in my arms to Marvin Gaye
    Our Christmas ham turned green by New Year's Eve
    We weren't hungry anyway
    Now sometimes we see each other on the street
    Maybe at a hotel or some party
    We say hello, then we have to go
    I can't believe we were married
    That we were wed
     
    Our houses were a shambles, our love conspiracy
    Your hand was always down my pants before our guests could leave
    They didn't like our drugs, our children or our dogs
    The way we made it up each day
    Now the kids have grown we talk on the phone
    If one of them is sick or needs some money
    Our words are dry, so measured and polite
    I can't believe we were married
    That we were wed
     
    Now maybe if I'm with someone you come into my mind
    The one I knew with your certain little cries
    You're not the only one to come rushing in
    It's like a party line
     
    Yeah sometimes we see each other on the street
    Maybe at a concert or some party
    We say hello, talk about the show
    I can't believe we were married
    Yeah we say hello, then we have to go
    You send your regards to all my family
    And the years have changed even the sound of your name
    I can't believe we were married
    That we were wed

    I Don’t Remember A Thing
    I woke up one morning, my head was feeling sore
    Woke up to the sound of knocking, detectives at my door
    There were two of them, they walked right in, 1 said What's going on?'
    The sergeant shook his head and said 'Don't you know what you have done?'
    I don't remember a thing
     
    They took me to a house, 1 knew that I'd been there before
    There were men with tape and pencils, there was blood upon the floor
    The sergeant asked me softly 'Now do you recalI?'
    It all looked so familiar as though I'd dreamt it all
    I don't remember a thing
     
    There was a photo on the dresser of a man who looked like me
    He was kissing a girl all in white, she was sitting on his knee
    A note was on the mantle, written in my hand
    It said 'I love you, darling, more than I can stand'
    I don't remember a thing

    So take me by the hand
    And show me how to read you right

    Come on teach me tonight

    Sydney From A 747
    Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
    Sydney shines such a beautiful light
    And I can see Bondi through my window way off to the right
    And the curling waves on a distant break
    And the sleeping city just about to wake
    Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
     
    Now the red roofs are catching the first rays of the morning sun
    My eyes are full of sand from my midnight run
    And the captain says 'Belt up now, we'll be touching down in ten'
    So I press my seat and I straighten up
    I fold my tray and I stash my cup
    As the red roofs are catching the first rays of the morning sun
     
    Have you ever fallen for a girl with different coloured eyes?
    And sent her letters full of lies
    Have you ever longed to see the sun fall where it used to rise?
    And quit your job on the spot
    Bought that ticket, yeah, spent the lot
    Have you ever fallen for a girl with different coloured eyes?
     
    Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
    Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
    Have you ever seen Sydney from a 727 at night?
    Me I've never seen Dallas from a DC9

    Night After Night

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Gerry Hale).

    Weekends when I go out walking
    Friends stop and they say hello
    They ask me how things are going
    I put on a show, a very good show
    I tell them that I'm doing fine now
    They smile and then they go on their way
    It's so easy to put on a brave face
    In the bright light of day before stars hold sway

    But I still miss you
    Whenever I turn out the light
    I still miss you
    Night after night after night after night

    They say that time is a healer
    And all bad things come to an end
    Well sometimes I almost believe it
    Then darkness comes in and I fall again
    I wish I could sleep like a baby
    I wish I could sink like a stone
    I wish that I could not remember
    Your sweet loving moan when we were alone

    And I still miss you
    Whenever I turn out the light
    I still miss you
    Night after night after night after night

    Whistling Bird
    Never ever see you
    Never see you no more
     
    Never even knew you
    Never knew you at all
     
    I got a bird that whistles
    I got a bird that sings
     
    Rolling tyres on the highway
    Sounding like a choir
     
    Fell asleep by the roadside
    Woke up to a choir

    Stories of Me

    Ever since you said goodbye
    I've had a reputation
    I'm not drinking on the sly
    I'm the star attraction
    Every morning I wake up
    Fill my cup and listen bitterly
    To stories of me
     
    They say a man is going round
    He looks a lot like me
    They say that man is going down
    It's looking pretty likely
    Every morning he wakes up
    Fills his cup and listens shamefully
    To stories of me
     
    Everybody come on down
    Set 'em up and pass 'em round
    We're all here for a drowning
     
    I was down at Baker's Hall
    I heard somebody talking
    That's the last thing I recall
    Then my mind went walking
    I woke up with a heavy head
    On a hard bed trying to believe
    These stories of me
     
    Yeah I woke up in a stranger's bed
    Wondering about the things she said to me
    These stories of me

    Taught By Experts

    You stand there looking so surprised
    Sad confusion in your eyes
    I know what you're going through
    Oh, baby, I've been there too
    And it hurts
    I was taught by experts

    You say I playa cheating game
    I never keep the rules the same
    I learned a thing or two
    What I learned I learned from you
    And it works
    I was taught by experts

    You put the weapon in my hand
    You made me what I am

    Now everything has turned around
    Down is up and up is down
    You got your fingers burned
    Your little worm has turned
    In the dirt
    I was taught by experts
    Don't it hurt
    I was taught by experts

    Gathering Storm

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Mart Saarelaht).

    I had a dream
    I saw you walking down the road
    In a gathering storm

    Wind on the rise
    A black crow was flying
    You alone in a gathering storm

    I wake up alone in my bed
    There's nothing before my eyes
    And outside the door
    Only the sighing
    And you out there in a gathering storm

    So cover your head
    Keep your eyes open
    Make speed in the gathering storm

    I rise up and turn on the light
    Now it's shining in my window
    My walls are strong
    My chimney's smoking
    God speed you
    In the gathering storm

    Shy Before You Lord
    I'm so shy before you, Lord
    I'm so shy before you, Lord
    I'm just looking for a word
    I'm just looking for a word
    I'm so shy before you, Lord
    Round here nothing ever stirred
    Round here nothing ever stirred
    I'm so shy before you, Lord
    You were calling, I never heard
    You were calling, I never heard
    I'm so shy before you, Lord
