'39

 

In the year of ’39,

assembled here the volunteers,

in the days when lands were few.

Here the ships sailed out into the blue and sunny morn’, 

sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day and the story tellers say,

that there’s score brave souls inside.

for many lonely day sailed across the milky seas,

ne’er looked back, ne’er feared never cried.

Don’t you hear my call, though you’re many years away,

don’t you hear me calling you?

Write your letters in the sand for the day I take your hand

in the land that our grandchildren knew.

In the year of ’39, came a ship in from the blue,

volunteers came home that day.

and they bring good news of a world so newly born

but their hearts so heavily weigh.

and the earth is old and gray,

 little darling we’ll away but my love this cannot be.

Oh, so many years are gone, though I’m older but a year, 

your mother’s eyes from your eyes cry to me.

Don’t you hear my call though you’re many years away,

don’t you hear me calling you?

Write your letters in the sand for the day I take your hand

in the land that our grandchildren knew.

Don’t you hear my call though you’re many years away, don’t you hear me calling you?

All your letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand.

For my life, still ahead, pity me.
