Backwaters Lyrics

Drenge – Backwaters Lyrics

[First Verse]
Sun's so high, waterhole's dry
I wanna give up, but I don't know why
Sun's so hot that meat cooks in the shade

Saw a lamb and it was choking on death
It's mother kicked, and broken it's neck
I never seen blood and milk mixed so divine

I never seen such beauty so malign

[Second Verse]
Brother said Bourbon never done me good
Neither did a face full of campfire soot
Them burning Alport coals sting like a bitch

I catch a lift on the last bus home
To the end of the line for the coppers I own
I get thrown off, hit on, beat up before I drown

In the murky backwaters I lay my body down

[Third Verse]
Fifty stars above my head, and
Thirteen scars run through my chest
Blue and red blood fuck up my veins

Blackened eyes, and a purple nose
I've got missing teeth, got a lot of those
Oh Marygold, you've never done me no harm

Oh Marygold, in debt to you
Don't ever wanna say the things I've thought of you
Oh Marygold, I wrote you a love song
