Tim Finn - Big Wave Rider lyrics

I met a woman from the south
And she was a big wave rider
With a sick child by her side
But she wouldn't let it bring her down

Big wave rider's in town
Nothing can break her down

Between a mountain and a wave
Like a war sign to the masses
She told me I should carry on
Her story told her legend

And when she's sitting's out the back
And her set comes walling through
She's always waiting for the big one
She can feel it like a sound

She made me feel it in my blood
Responsibility of love
I've come to give with every take
It's for the people that I take
