Memories of My Old Town

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


The fig trees still stand in Baker St

Overlooking the Bellinger River

I close my eyes 

And hear my sister say

Let's play together


And old Mrs Toms 

Has been long gone

With the Doll house 

On her verandah

And the goldfish pond

Are memories that live on forever


Yesterday and today and tomorrow

Is it still in blossom

At the bottom of the steps

Where the old black snake slept


And the double decker bus

With George the driver

Took us into school

You could smell the kerosine

With the kids with the lice

Feeling such a fool


Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Keep coming back to me


When we found the treasure in the yard

Old bottles from an old hotel

Green and blue a vessel in time

Now they sit on the shelf

At my sisters house


Bags of lollies

From the old post office

Our feet as hard as leather

From the bitumen in summer

When we'd walk down the street 

To collect the letters


Yesterday and today and tomorrow

Is it still in blossom

At the bottom of the steps

Where the old black snake slept


And the double decker bus

With George the driver

Took us into school

You could smell the kerosine

With the kids with the lice

Feeling such a fool


Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Keep coming back to me


We had the best view in the valley

Like a good oil painting

Mountain and the river

Will be with me forever


And the cattle still cross the river 

At Brownlee's Lane

And when it pours with rain

The river just gets bigger and bigger


Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town


Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town

Memories of my old town


Keep coming back to me

On a Summer's Night

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


Rising tide of night

Over houses huddled down

Crickets in song

Through the quiet little town


A river hope

Deep and green

Through the hills

Summer night

For dreams to fill


Easterly breeze

A friend from the sea

Cool air caresses

The skin of all asleep


Rumbling thunder

Rolls around the hills

Summer night

For dreams to fill


Oh a joy to rest

From the heat of the day

The rise and fall of breath

In the comfort of one’s bed

On a summer’s night

On a summer’s night


Time on the wing

For those in golden years

A baby cries

A new life appears


Some greet the day

Some lie in eternal sleep

Summer night

Dreams are here


Oh a joy to rest

From the heat of the day

The rise and fall of breath

In the comfort of one’s bed


On a summer’s night

On a summer’s night

On a summer’s night

On a summer’s night

In The Valley

Music & Lyrics  by Kylie Adams-Collier


Oleander flowers use to line

The old trunk road into town

Mother's little helper all in blossom

By the sporting ground


Azalea's in the Springtime

Bring memories of the old festival

Petal blessings and parades

Ringing out the dairy bell


Willow trees by the river

Have been gone for many years

So has the biggest jacaranda

In the southern hemisphere


The giant fig tree in the lane

Holds a secret in the town

Old Man Dreaming crying tears

When the storms come around


In the valley

In the valley

From the river to the sea

In the valley


In the valley

In the valley

There's a promised land for you and me

Out in the valley

The Willow Weeps For Me

Music by Kylie Adams-Collier

Lyrics by John Seers


Why does the willow weep my love

The willow weeps for me

Though the sun is shining

And blue skies I can see


The willow doesn’t raise her head

But sees what use to be

That’s why the willow weeps my love

The willow weeps for me


I saw the storm clouds gathering

And heard the whispering pines

But didn’t hear them saying

That you would not be mine


In my heart I sang a song

Of my love for you

Never knowing that your love

Would leave me sad and blue


Why does the willow weep my love

The willow weeps for me

Though the sun is shining

And blue skies I can see


The willow doesn’t raise her head

But sees what use to be

That’s why the willow weeps my love

The willow weeps for me


When I learned I lost your love

The moon lost all its glow

The flowers lost their beauty

Cold winds began to blow


The birds up in the blue gum trees

They forgot to sing

The sweet song of the bellbird

No longer did it ring


Why does the willow weep my love

The willow weeps for me

Though the sun is shining

And blue skies I can see


The willow doesn’t raise her head

But sees what use to be

That’s why the willow weeps my love

The willow weeps for me


The day you took your love from me

My world fell apart

Now I wander all alone

With a broken heart


I went down to the river

And told the willow tree

That’s why the willow weeps my love

The willow weeps for me


Why does the willow weep my love

The willow weeps for me

Though the sun is shining

And blue skies I can see


The willow doesn’t raise her head

But sees what use to be

That’s why the willow weeps my love

The willow weeps for me




Light as a Feather

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


There comes a time in your life

To forgive and forget

The list of forgiveness ever growing


Send your love and blessings

To all those who’ve done you wrong

And the ones to come always knowing


That the burden of regret

Will be lifted from your shoulders

You’ll be free for better days to come


Some words hurt truly deep

And it’s hard to let go

Send them away from heart and mind


Forgiveness brings the light inside your soul

That you have searched for

You’ll shine forevermore


Someday you’ll be lifted to a place of understanding

Light as feather when you go


There comes a time in your life

To forgive and forget

Even if the pain has caused you sorrow


Send your love and blessings

To all those who’ve done you wrong

Time is never there for you to borrow

To Fill The Pail

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


Trees of winter

Bare limb and bough

Frost of white

Covers the ground

Crispy air

The sky blue serene

And cattle wait

In sunshine and steam


Rugged face by warmth of the fire

Cup in hand before the dairy hour

Bless you old farmer

And your cattle as well

For your early mornings to fill the pail


Muddy boots

By the door

And a faithful dog

In a patter of paws


Budding jasmine

On the old gate standing guard

As the farmer walks the trail

To the old dairy yard


Damper and tea

When you come home

Sunny eggs

From the old chook house


A rooster crows

With a notion of time

And echoes in the valley

With the songbirds in rhyme


Muddy boots

By the door

And a faithful dog

In a patter of paws

Budding jasmine

On the old gate standing guard

As the farmer walks the trail

To the old dairy yard


Bless you old farmer

And your cattle as well

Bless you old farmer

And your cattle as well

And your hard work as well.




Fearless Like a Magpie

Music & Lyrics by kylie Adams-Collier


Swimming in the Hawkesbury River

Rolling in the mud at low tide

Never-mind the jellyfish dad said

Holidays at Mount White

And all the things we did

You have no fear when you’re a kid


Climbing up the mulberry tree

To pick the highest berries

Mum said she’d make a crumble later on

One foot behind the other

Then you jump down to the ground

You have no fear when you’re a kid


Then one day when you grow older

And your starry eyes seem to fade

Always chasing the horizon

And all the dreams and plans you’d made


Some days you’re a wall-flower

And other days you speak your mind

Just be fearless like a magpie

And your dreams will come in time


Riding on the lilo

Down the rapids on the river

Pump it up to miss the river rocks

Grab the willow tree

To get back to the top

You have no fear when you’re a kid


Then one day you grow older

And your starry eyes seem to fade

Always chasing the horizon

And all the dreams and plans you’d made


Some days you’re a wall-flower

And other days you speak your mind

Just be fearless like a magpie

And your dreams will come in time

If You Could Only Find The Time

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


The sewing machine

Sits in the dark

Quiet in the cupboard

Another bright spark


Seemed like a good idea at the time

Straight lines and cushions

And curtains so fine


Dried up paints

In the old paint box

Hasn't seen the daylight

Since time forgot


Quiet in the cupboard

Another bright spark

Seemed like a good idea at the time


Life passes by

In a blink of an eye

Time to finish what you started

If you could only find the time


Pen to paper

Shovel to soil

Hand to clay

Wings to the world


Quiet in the cupboard

Another bright spark

Seemed like a good idea at the time


Life passes by

In a blink of an eye

Time to finish what you started

If you could only find the time

Time


Time flies by

Lavender Bridge

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


Early in the morning

On Lavender Bridge

Swallows fly over and under

Like they always did


A cloud on the mountain

River running high

Mother's spirit is everywhere


Walking down the main street

Of my hometown

Familiar faces

On Familiar ground


Walking in the footsteps

Of days gone by

Mother's spirit is everywhere


Greif is love without a home

But a new life has awoken

For whenever I go back home

Her name is softly spoken

She's in the river and the sky

In my dreams at night


Mother's sprit is everywhere



Mamma's Table

Music & Lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier


I'm a truck driving mamma

On the highway

I'm a truck driving mamma

On the highway

I'm goin' back

To bring home mamma's table


500 miles

500more

500 miles

500 more

I'm goin' back

To bring home mamma's table


My mamma's gone

We laid her to rest

My mamma's gone

We laid her to rest

I'm going back

To bring home mamma's table

True Love

Music by Kylie Adams-Collier

Lyrics by Lola Patricia Brinton


True love is a lesson in loving

Everyone as special as the first

It entices us - to try again

Our hearts have a loving thirst


It's not something you just get over

Don't be afraid to try it again

Recalling true loves many delights

Will dull the sharpest pain


It's not always the place or the time for true love

Like a fine wine it leaves, a drop in the glass

You can taste with delight or cry over all night

It wasn't just a romance - these memories will last


We are playing a numbers game

As we look for love ever after

For as surely as sunshine follows the rain

Tears sometimes follow our laughter


True love isn't bothered by who are

We are all the one and the same

It's all up to you and If you are lucky

You'll be a winner again


It's not always the place or the time for true love

Like a fine wine it leaves, a drop in the glass

You can taste with delight or cry over all night

It wasn't just a romance - these memories will last
