I’d never want to relive the day.
I’d never want to relive the day
I left my mum, I turned away
And came here to Australia
From England oh, so very far
She cried and cried to see me go
If I’d be back she did not know
Just sixty pound I had on me
Mum never knew just what would be
What else really, could I do?
I’d wed a girl I loved so true
She was from the land of Oz
And with her family her heart was
I’d never want to relive that day
I broke mums heart in such a way
But that’s the way it had to be
Though it caused mum so much misery.
