I Came to a Western Island

I Came to a Western Island
(Archie Fisher)

I came to a western island as far as a man can walk is my land
Cleared ten acres and a house I build, into the side of the hill

One cow and a lean-to bier, a spring close by and a driftwood fire
A clear view of the settin' sun and 12 gauge hammer gun

I keep sheep, I fish deep water in a high bowed boat called the Neptune's
She will ride any western gale and can carry a stack of sails

Some nights when the bright lights flicker I sail to the mainland for my
I haven't got a woman to call my own but I never wake up alone

A man needs to fell the ground and wind to tell him that the world spins
To watch the stars and taste the sea, and woman to keep him free

Repeat 1st verse
