Darwin (Big Heart of the North)

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Australia Is His Name (1985).

Oh you're the big heart of the country all the world comes through your gate
You're everybody's comrade and you're everybody's mate
You're the front door of Australia with friendship flowing forth
And we're proud to say come in this way through the big heart of the north

Many oceans roll to meet the silver sands upon your shore
Many races walk along your streets and freedoms they enjoy
With the bright blue sky above you, you uphold Australia's torch
You're a jewel shining for us you're the big heart of the north

Oh you're the big heart of the country all the world comes through your gate
You're everybody's comrade and you're everybody's mate
You're the front door of Australia with friendship flowing forth
And we're proud to say come in this way through the big heart of the north

From the world they come and from the south there's a place for everyone
A helping hand and a friendly smile and a place there in the sun
And when they leave and turn their faces further down the track
You smile and say so long my friend 'cause you'll soon be coming back

Oh you're the big heart of the country all the world comes through your gate
You're everybody's comrade and you're everybody's mate
You're the front door of Australia with friendship flowing forth
And we're proud to say come in this way through the big heart of the north

Oh you're the big heart of the country all the world comes through your gate
You're everybody's comrade and you're everybody's mate
You're the front door of Australia with friendship flowing forth
And we're proud to say come in this way through the big heart of the north
And yes we're proud to say come in this way through the big heart of the north
