INTRO 
I spent some time out in the canefields, 
 I headed west to lightning ridge. 
I've seen every lonely roadhouse, 
 From Charleville to Murray Bridge. 
I see your face in every shadow, 
I hear your voice upon the wind. 
The more I try to forget you, 
 The more your memory rushes in. 
When the snow falls on the Alice and it floods at Tilberoo, 
When the Roper freezes over, that's when I'll stop loving you. 
INSTRUMENTAL 
Just like the end of the rainbow, 
You're always just out of reach. 
We parted in a moment, 
 But I've been leaving you for years. 
So don't ask me where I'm goin', 
 'Cause I won't know 'til I arrive. 
Though you're a thousand miles behind me, 
You're never far from my mind. 
When the snow falls on the Alice and it floods at Tilberoo, 
I'll lay my burden down, and my waitin' will be through. 
'Til then you'll find me on the highway just somewhere beyond the blue, 
When the Roper freezes over, that's when I'll stop loving you. 
INSTRUMENTAL
