  • Song Lyrics:
    In the year of thirty-nine
    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 storytellers say
    That the score brave souls inside
    For many a lonely day
    Sailed across the milky seas
    Ne'er 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 letters in the sand
    For the day I'll take your hand
    In the land that our grandchildren knew

    In the year of thirty-nine
    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 hearts so heavily weigh

    For the earth is old and grey
    Little darlin' we'll away
    But my love, this cannot be
    Oh so many years have gone
    Though I'm older but a year
    Your mother's eyes from your eyes cry to me

    Don't you hear my call
    Though you're many years away
    Don't you hear me calling you
    Write your letters in the sand
    For the day I'll take your hand
    In the land that our grandchildren knew

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