"Oh the Flame Trees Will Blind a Weary Driver"

Don Walker wrote the lyrics to Flame Trees about Grafton.
It's the classic aussie country town song of love, loss, friendship and anti-nostalgia.
I can't get this tune out of my head at this time of the year.


  1. I don't know this song, but how do you cover all those themes plua 'anti-nostalgia'?

    The shot is telling ... the going away and leaving behind idea.

  2. Is that what the words are. All I hear is flame trees something something weary driver. Lovely colours.

  3. Here in Auckland, we have a Grafton bridge, and our Pohutukawa tree is red too.
