Lyrics:

The Girl From Kosovo

She came from the north, Albanian bride
Serbian gun, cleaning his pride
Flying high


Villawood frowns, draws me inside
Says girl you'll drown they wont hear your lies
Even back home, I could see sky
I dream of home, where I could see sky

Chorus:

They tell me this is a short term detention
I know your real intention
Brown sandy land, take mercy on me

Guard, knock on my door fore u come in
Don't stand there and gloat, and wipe off your grin
You're born to a beautiful land, doesn't give you right
To hold your flag in the ground, your heart beats like mine


With kids I'd play hide and go seek
They say what'd I do? I've been here for weeks
At home they said it'd be fun, they didn't mention bars
They told me Aussies were true blue, didn't say they'd be guards


Chorus

Violin solo

Brown sandy land,
Brown sandy land,
Brown sandy land, take mercy on me

They let me walk, to live with my sin
To hang my head low, all know I broke in
I left my own behind, I didn't think I'd mind
They said girl you'll land on your feet, they said I'm too tough to cry

My accent a sign, my nose is a curse
They say "How'd ya be?" I'm lost for words
Some shout abuse out loud, some keep it low
However you voice your fears, you'll know the girl, from Kosovo
