I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey
And it's only other vets could understand
About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
How we sailed into Sydney Harbor
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land
And she was like so many more from that time on
And their legs were often open
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
And I never stopped the dreams

Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
Flying choppers when I could

And each one found me aimless, one more year the more for wear
But the answer sure ain't there

Only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong
From a jaded Chinese princess

Yeah the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
