​Camooweal

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the compilation album The Very Best of Slim Dusty (1998).

Should ever I go back to Camooweal
'Twould be in spring when desert flowers bloom
Oh, the spinifex I know would still be there
And the desert pea would brighten up the gloom

Should ever I go back to Camooweal
One thing is sure I'd not be twenty-two
As in that day when I first wandered there
But mem'ries stay with me as mem'ries do

Instrumental
How fresh her mem'ry keeps for still I feel
The velvet softness of her auburn hair
And see again the moonbeams in her eyes

As I did so long ago when I was there
Youth called to youth in that now distant day
I did not heed my heart, did not reveal,
And now I know that love was born and lost

In that little border town of Camooweal
Instrumental
Oh, the long road beckoned on my feet said go
To search beyond the hills for what I find

Although I've wandered far this sunburnt land
I never found what I had left behind
Oh the burning fire of that other spring
Is now but ashes and the hurt won't heal
Time heals all wounds they say, but leaves the scar
So I think I'll not go back to Camooweal
Time heals all wounds they say, but leaves the scar
So I think I'll not go back to Camooweal
No I think I'll not go back to Camooweal
