Far Away In Australia
Traditional

Sweetheart I'm bidding you fond farewell
Murmured a youth one day
I'm off to a new land my fortune to try
And I'm ready to sail away

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome the lass
The girl I left behind

Must we be parted?! his fairer one cried
I cannot let you go
Still I must leave you, the young man replied
But for only a while you know

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome the lass
The girl I left behind

Whether in success or failure
I will always be true
Proudly each day in that land far away
I'll be building a home for you

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome the lass
The girl I left behind

Daily she waits at the old cottage gate
Watching the whole day through
Till that sweet message comes over the wave
And in the new world they're joined as two

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome the lass
The girl I left behind
