Race That Train - Victoria Hotel

o there's only one bar in moonan flat
and it's called the Victoria Hotel

and there's only one road in moonan flat
and it leads to the victoria hotel
ain't got no bitumen
nothin' but a dirt track
that drops you on the door step at
the victoria hotel

and there's only one river in moonan flat
you must cross to the victoria hotel
well there once was a bridge
but that bridge collapsed
under a twenty two wheeler on its way
to the victoria hotel

there's no better place on a sunday afternoon
for a cold beer and a steak and a room
than the victoria hotel
'cause there's only one place on a sunday afternoon
for a cold beer and a steak and a room
and that's the victoria hotel

there's only one cop in moonan flat
and he's drinking at the victoria hotel
so you ain't got to worry
'bout no police trap
when you're driving back home tonight
from the victoria hotel

and there's only one lady in moonan flat
and she owns the victoria hotel
she's always courteous
she says "come on back"
everybody's welcome down at
the victoria hotel
