G       D    Em
In the year of '39, assembled here the Volunteers
       C         G          D
In the days when lands were few
D        Em                  Em7
Here the ship sailed out into the
Blue and sunny morn
Dsus4    D          G
Sweetest sight ever seen.
G   D       B7
And night followed day, and the story tellers say
         Em                Am  (then passing notes C B A F#)
That the score brave souls inside
    G                        D
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
C            Em    C     D       C  G  D------
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried.

          G                           C          G
Don't you hear my call, though you're many years away,
G                         D
Don't you hear me calling you
           G          F#/G Em      D       C B/G       Am
Write your letters in the sand for the day I take your hand
       Em            D             G
In the land that our grandchildren knew.

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The Volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their so heavily weigh
For the earth is old and grey,
to a new home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes, in your eyes, cry to me.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All the letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand
For my life, still ahead, pity Me.
