Slim Dusty - A Thousand Years Ago lyrics


As I sit here on my verandah and watch the sun go down,
And listen to the sounds that make this quiet coastal
town,
I watch the traffic passing by on the highway down
below,
And I wonder now what brought me here, so many years
ago.

Where the plains climb through the mountains, and the
rivers all ran wide,
The rains came in their seasons, to dress the
countryside,
And a place called West of Sundown, where the western
breezes blow,
Now seems a million miles away and a thousand years
ago.

Yes I wonder if the hand of fate, that made me wander
here,
And led me to this life style to live out my twilight
years,
So far away from what I've been and the life I used to
know,
It seems a million miles away and a thousand years ago.

[Instrumental]

The country that I bought and sold the homesteads I
have known,
The stock camps, men and branding fires have just been
stepping stones
In a dream to make a life for these and watch my
fortunes grow,
Now it all seem like a million miles and a thousand
years ago.

But I was never one to dwell upon this fortune or my
luck
But I'm content with what I have, thankful for what
I've got,
And the friends I left behind me and the loved ones
I've let go,
Now seem a million miles away and a thousand years ago.

As I sit here on my verandah and watch the sun go down,
And listen to the sounds that make this quiet coastal
town,
And I watch the traffic passing by on the highway down
below,
And I wonder now what brought me here, so many years
ago.

Yes I wonder at the hand of fate, that made me wander
here,
And led me to this life style to live out my twilight
years,
So far away from what I've been and the life I used to
know,
It seems a million miles away and a thousand years ago.

A thousand years ago. A thousand years ago.
