Lyrics to a song that I have written regarding the Stolen Generation....
The first time I met Julliette She was travelling my way And she told me all the stories of Those Dreamtime ways And you've got to believe her She's from Kakadu way She's got a hundred different reasons why She's headed back that way
Chorus Where she was dealt a Wildcard, Wild card one day Why was she dealt a Wildcard, Wildcard that way.
Oh' if you're looking for Julliette I know just where she'll be She'll be thinking of the Dreamtime Underneath that old Boab tree And that story of Julliette Stolen Aboriginal child Still with the memories of Kakadu In her heart still running wild. chorus
Just ask Julliettes Mama She'll tell you of the day When them fulla's from the Welfare come Took Julliette away Oh they took her to a white mans world They were two worlds apart But I'll tell you that Julliette Still had Kakadu in her heart. Chorus.
God Grant me the Serenity To accept the things I cannot change Courage to change the things I can And Wisdom to know the difference.
