Lyrics

Where is the honest truth, where is the open soul, where is the simple smile
A friendly word or two for the passing stranger who may rest a while
Across the Arlick face the amber sun beats down upon the vivid green
I hear it wide and loud feel it wild and proud the way it's always been

My fathers they have walked this road, and now I know, yes didn't they know
There is no great and heavy load, and now I know, yes didn't they know
CHORUS: Fa-la la la we stand on solid ground, on solid ground
Fa-la la la we stand on solid ground, on solid ground

My fathers they have looked this way and now I know, yes didn't they know
No clever words we have to say, and now I know, yes didn't they know
CHORUS

It's the land it is our wisdom
It's the land it sees us through
It's the land, it feeds our children
It's the land - you cannot own the land, the land owns you

My fathers they have said these things, and now I know, yes didn't they know
The joy that shared friendship brings, and now I know, yes didn't they know
CHORUS
