Paul Kelly – One Night The Moon lyrics

One night the moon came sailing by
On a big ship right across the night sky
One night the moon came sailing by
Called all the dreamers to come for a ride

One night the moon came wheeling by
On a big bike right across the night sky
One night the moon came wheeling by
Called all the sleepers to come for a ride

One night the moon came galloping by
On a big horse right across the night sky
One night the moon came galloping by
Called all the dreamers to come for a ride

One night the moon came choo-chooing by
On a big train right across the night sky
One night the moon came choo-chooing by
Called all the sleepers to come for a ride

One night the moon came rolling by
In a big cart right across the night sky
One night the moon came rolling by
Called all the dreamers to come for a ride

[ 3 ] [ 4 ] The film won ten awards, including two Australian Film Institute (AFI) Awards. [ 5 ]

One Night the Moon was inspired by the story of indigenous tracker, Alexander Riley as depicted in Black Tracker (1997), a documentary directed by Riley's grandson, Michael Riley. [ 6 ] [ 7 ] Alexander Riley had worked for the New South Wales police in Dubbo in the early 1900s, finding wanted criminals, missing persons and hidden caches. [ 6 ] Composer/singer Mairead Hannan saw the documentary and formed a project with her sister Deirdre Hannan, Kelly, Carmody, Alice Garner. Romeril and Perkins. [ 7 ] Aside from the search for a missing child, the film deals with the racist attitude depicted by the father's refusal to use an indigenous tracker. [ 2 ] [ 7 ] The film was Paul Kelly's cinematic debut, while his then wife, Fairfax had a lead role in two related TV mini-series Harp in the South and Poor Man's Orange in 1987, and roles in films Belinda (1988) and Young Einstein (1989). [ 8 ] Fairfax had her film debut with a minor role in 1982's Starstruck which had Paul Kelly and the Dots supplying a song for the soundtrack. [ 9 ] [ 10 ]

Set in the 1930s Australian Outback, starring singer Paul Kelly as a farmer, Jim Ryan, newly settled in the area. He is the father of a girl, Emily (Memphis Kelly, his real life daughter), who climbs out the window of their farmhouse one night and follows the moon into the hills. Rose Ryan (Kelly's then wife Kaarin Fairfax and mother of Memphis) comes to check on her daughter only to find that Emily is missing.

The Ryans get the local police, led by a sergeant (Chris Haywood ), to search for her, but when their Aboriginal tracker, Albert Yang (Kelton Pell) arrives, the father says he does not want any blacks on his land. Jim Ryan and the white police go searching for Emily, destroying evidence Albert could have used to find the girl. The white men cannot find her, eventually Rose goes to Albert's hut and together they go looking for Emily, they find her dead in the hills and bring her body back home. Albert's wife (Ruby Hunter ) sings the funeral song for the lost child, whilst their own child is missing - as part of the 'Stolen Generations ' - taken by white authorities. Jim blames himself for not finding Emily and commits suicide.

Background

A 1997 documentary. Black Tracker on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) TV, concerned an indigenous tracker called Alexander Riley from Dubbo. New South Wales. [ 6 ] [ 7 ] Singer-songwriter Mairead Hannan saw Black Tracker. she liked the story about a young boy who disappeared near Dubbo in 1932 and was tracked by Riley. [ 7 ] Hannan wanted to tell the story as a musical for a project sponsored by ABC TV's Arts and Entertainment department. [ 7 ] Mairead enlisted her sister and fellow composer Deirdre Hannan, then other composers/performers Paul Kelly. Kev Carmody and Alice Garner to help with the project. [ 1 ] Screenwriter John Romeril and director Rachel Perkins were approached and together wrote the screenplay. [ 1 ] Garner was due to take the part of Rose Ryan, the mother, but became pregnant so Kaarin Fairfax (Kelly's wife) undertook the role. [ 1 ] Aside from the search for a missing child, the film deals with the racist attitude depicted by the father's refusal to use the indigenous tracker.

[ 1 ] Location filming occurred on Andyamathanha land in the Flinders Ranges and other sites in South Australia for six weeks early in 2000.
