THREE TRUCK DRIVERS (Leigh Newton, 1999) Three truck drivers came from the east. They were west of Wagga Wagga, they were south of Ivanhoe, They were roaring down the highway on the straightest stretch of road, They were dodging kangaroos in the middle of the night When a light appeared before them in a blinding flash of white. Three truck drivers came from the east. Three truck drivers came from the east. They could feel their hearts as-thumpin' when they heard the thunder clap, They were yelling on the CB saying, "What the hell is that?" But the light still kept on burning like sodium aflame, And the thing kept getting closer as they headed 'cross the plain. Three truck drivers came from the east.

And they followed on in convoy just like ducklings down the track, Through gates and stubble paddocks to a rusty shed outback; Where the light shone all about and like a star on Christmas tree It seemed to say, now resting, "Just see what you can see." Three truck drivers came from the east. Three truck drivers came from the east. Found a couple in the shed there by a dim old kero lamp, With a wet and brand new baby where the ground was red and damp; They went scrabbling in their pockets for a gift to fit a king, They gave a shining opal, a bunch of keys, a wedding ring.
