about

Golden Plains is the second single from Lucie Thorne’s extraordinary new art/pop concept album Kitty & Frank, which traces the wild true stories of young frontier woman Kitty Walsh and her lover, the charismatic bandit and bushranger Frank Gardiner.

lyrics

Golden Plains

They’re coming in by foot and wagon
coming in from every place
you can catch the scent of the fever
no wild rain can wash away

We’ve never seen nothing like it
things are changing every day
it’s turning up in the dirt and gravel
flashes in the riverbeds and the clay

They say
it’s wild
the veins keep stretching
out, over and down, it’s rife
with fortune shifters

One for frost, two for fire
fine bright golden flooding plains
I climb up through the granite boulders
and watch ‘em come in droves now everyday

They say
it’s wild
there’s more I know it
more, it’s turning me bold and wild
the plains are golden

I was born down at Merriganowry
I’ve been along the Lachlan all my life
and just like my sisters before me
I’ve been made somebody’s wife

I’m still
a child
though I’ve seen plenty
Oh but this heart is wild
and future heavy

There’s more I know it
more, it’s turning me bold and wild
the plains are golden
