Pretty Maids


In the year of '39, assembled here the volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen

And the night followed day, and the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Never looked back, never feared, never cried

Don't you hear my call, though you're many years away?
Don't you hear me calling you?
Write your letter 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
The volunteers came home that day
Find more lyrics at ※
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and gray, 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
