Jimmy Barnes - Last Frontier Lyrics

Pushin’ ever westward, across the great divide
Beyond the darling river
Towards the outback sky

The lawless and the brave, searchin’ for a dream
When all they found was sand and stone
Where rivers once had been

They tried to follow nomads, like ghosts in desert dreams
And suffered in a sunburnt land…
Down in the last frontier

They sent them from the motherland
Into there greatest fear
To live and die for freedom’s cry
Down in the last frontier

A drover rides in search of work, across the sweeping plains
A farmer kneels in a hungry church
As his children prey for rain

Back in a land across the sea
They found another war
They asked the anzacs to believe
What there fightin’ for

They sent them to another land
Into there greatest fear
To fight and die for freedom’s cry
And for the last frontier

People in the lucky land, who searched for paradise
Are reachin’ out for somethin’ more
And don’t believe there lies

The promises of hope and work, still ringing in there ears
The hungry and homeless cry
Down in the last frontier

    The great Neal Schon on lead guitar
    Love Freight Train Heart, a really good album for when you're on the road.

    He is a fabulous artist bought allready six albums in 6 months


    Finally, 'recorded this song in the80's , from the Friday rock show on radio 1, never knew who sang this song as tape ( yes kids........ Cassette tapes !) ran out and stopped ....... So never knew the singer, but now I do 😃

  6. Lee Urquhart

    I can't explain how much Jimmy's music moved me when I was a young man in the 80s and 90s.
    The guy is a legend and has had some legendary musicians play with him.

  7. Antonello Nusca

    This album is a jewel.

  36. darley1958

    This brings back memories...........London 1988, Royal Marsden Hospital and the love of my life brought this back from Australia. Changed my life. What a great singer. She's gone but I still have the music and the memories !!!

  37. Shell Bogan Chick

    I can send you a copy if you like...on disc...

  38. Shell Bogan Chick

    I have adored Jim since I was 14......(2012 sees me celebrate my 42nd birthday!! Faaaaarkk!). This is, without a doubt, his best song ever!! It should be the Australian anthem! Nothing short of fucking brilliant......and I have ALL his albums (including the rare B side tracks)...but this one is still my fave.

  39. Shell Bogan Chick

    Have always said this song should be Australia's national anthem. My all time fave song of Barnesy's!

  40. aftermath89

    @llph0enXll What I would give for a copy of that! I was starting to think my memory was failing me and I had only imagined that version as I have never been able to find it again. I too had it on casette many years ago.

    @JackieKixx: Dunno... I just know one Live version. With an epic piano solo at the beginning. (about 2-3 Mins.) My dad had it on an old cassette. I just recorded it to PC but it has som jumps and errors because the cassette was very old.

  46. Jackie Kixx

    @flamenkoit Agree with you! Long live " Jimmy Barnes" !!

  47. Jackie Kixx

    @llph0enXll you mean the live version from " BARNSTORMING" ?
