about

One of the most he most difficult issue facing Australians is our relationship with the first Australians. This song is part of my journey towards understanding and reconciliation.

lyrics

Red Rocks ( Sorry Just Isn’t Enough )

There are more than red rocks here,
There are more than rocks and sand,
Echoes of the dispossessed
The story of this land,

Take our children take our home,
The sacred earth that we come from,
give us alcohol, give us flour,
A god for our final hour.

Chorus :
Red rocks, red sand ,
black blood, white hands,
Red rocks, red sand
Black clouds coming down, across the great divide.

Who knows how long we been here
The song lines tell of countless years
From desert sand to river mud
This earth is in our blood , and written on these

Chorus :
Red rocks, red sand ,
black blood, white hands,
Red rocks, red sand
Black clouds coming down, across the great divide.

Bridge
Vincent Lingara gurinji man
Walking the stockmen of vestys land
It wasn't just money or better conditions
Respect for his people and ancient traditions

Charlie Perkins on the freedom ride,Looking back on the great divide
John Platt died in Roebourne jail,screaming how the system failed
While we set up inquiries, Royal Commissions,
Armies of dogooders all on a mission,
Reports are released at the end of the day and all we have to say,

Sometimes sorry just isn't enough
Sometimes sorry just isn't enough
