Family Farm (Live Acoustic from the 2019 Greatest Hits Tour - Tanunda SA)

Verse 1

I rode the boundary of our place for the very last time
And I was leaving for Sydney on the mail train, I made up my mind
When Dad died in June, I'd never seen my mother so frail
Three months later we had to put the family farm up for sale

Chorus

There was a five gallon mailbox on a post by the road
Where I'd turn up the valley and wind my way home
I can see Mom and Dad arm in arm
In my memories of the family farm

Verse 2

No horses, no valleys, no crossings, no hinterland streams
Just a heart full of songs, a guitar, and a swag full of dreams
In a dark little room I'd scratch out my letters to Mom
And a part of me driftеd back north with every single onе

Chorus

To that five gallon mailbox on a post by the road
Where I'd turn up the valley and wind my way home
I can see Mom and Dad arm in arm
In my memories of the family farm

Verse 3

We laid Mom to rest next to Dad the year the farm sold
And months turned to years as I followed the call of the road
I was just passin' through when I saw that real estate sign
And that very day I put my name to what had always been mine

Chorus

By that five gallon mailbox on a post by the road
Where I'd turn up the valley and wind my way home
I can see Mom and Dad arm in arm
In my memories of the family farm
I can see Mom and Dad arm in arm
In my memories of the family farm

Outro

Hey
Thank you very much
