Prairie Hotel Parachilna Lyrics:

Verse 1
I'm talking about Parachilna
Prairie Hotel, Parachilna
Where you won't grow no roses
But all the women try it
West of the Flinders Ranges
She's watching all the strangers
Building rubble shelters
But making no impression . . .
On a land so old and fragile
Its bones are poking through
And its flesh is blowing all the way to Sydney

Verse 2
Yes I'm talking about Parachilna
Prairie Hotel, Parachilna
Where dust like talcum powder
Finds its way inside you
And lands upon your mantel
Makes muddy tears from crying
Looking at faded hoses
Like snakes out in the garden
The beds are blowing all the way to Sydney

Chorus
But they're dancing and they're singing
All around the bar
There's nothing like a beer to wash it down
Batten down the hatches
'Cause the wind is getting stronger
Looks as though we're staying in tonight

Verse 3
Yes I'm talking about Parachilna
Prairie Hotel, Parachilna
Where you won't grow no roses
But all the women try it
Are left with faded hoses
Like snakes out in the garden
In the company of the King Brown
Keep y' shotgun loaded
Near the back door of the kitchen
It'll come back for the water
Gonna blow that reptile all the way to Sydney

CHORUS

Verse 4
I'm talking about Parachilna
Prairie Hotel, Parachilna
Where the crows fly backwards
I'm talking about the back woods
West of the Flinders Ranges
She's watching all the strangers
Building rubble shelters
But making no impression . . .
On a land so old and fragile
Its bones are poking through
And its flesh is blowing all the way to Sydney
