Lyrics
Sweetheart I'm bidding you fond farewell
I will be yours someday
I'm bound for 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 at last
The girl I left behind

"Oh, you can't leave me", this poor maiden said
"I will not let you go"
"But I must leave you", he gently replied
"If only for a while, you know"
Now in success or in failure
I will always be true,
And proudly each day in the land far away
I'll be building a home for you."

Daily she waits at the old cottage gate
Watching the whole day through
Then one day a message from over the sea
And I'm hoping these words are true
Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome at last
The girl I left behind
