The Golden Mile

The whole town's on the loop line
Two up rules the day
Pennies rising with the sun
Except for the day that mum gets her pay

The black man
And the white man
Are scratching their sunburnt face
While digging themselves
A hole in the ground
To find a better place

Everybody wants a holiday
With a full day's pay
Some people need it
Some people steal it
Some people have it anyway

Children watch a father
Twelve hours full of sweat
They look in his eye and see the future
in the leather skin spinners bet
While the black man
And the white man
Still scratch a weary face
While they're digging themselves
A hole in the ground
To find a better place

Everybody wants a holiday
With a full day's pay
Some people need it
Some people steal it
Some people have it anyway

Can you see your children falling
Down kalgoorlie's hill
Can they see the future in the miners'

Golden swill, when's it going to rain
Golden swill, when's it going to come

It's been a long time sweating
When you run the golden mile

Oh kalgoorlie when's it gonna rain
Oh kalgoorlie when's it gonna come
