Don Walker is widely considered one of Australia's greatest songwriters. For over forty years - from Cold Chisel and Tex, Don & Charlie to his solo work - he has written songs that capture what it is to be Australian.
Collected here, for the first time, are lyrics from his extensive career- from 'Khe Sanh' to 'Flame Trees', 'Cheap Wine' to 'Harry Was a Bad Bugger', Walker's words are poetic, moving and incisive.
These words live on the page, with or without the memory of music. Interspersed with autobiographical sketches and anecdotes, Songs is a must-have for fans of Walker's brilliant, razor-sharp storytelling.
