G (pickup chord)  D
         In the  year of '39....
               Em
Assembled here the volunteers
        C ~       G
Days when lands were few
   D              Em          Em7
Here the ship sailed out into the
C ~
Blue and sunny morn
  D/G Dmaj       G
Sweetest sight ever seen.

G   D
And night followed day,
          B7
And the story tellers say
         Em                   Am (then passing notes C B A F#)
That the score brave souls inside
    G                         D
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
C            Em    C     D       C  ( G) D
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried.

          G                           C            G
Don't you hear my call, though you're many years away,
G                         D
Don't you hear me calling you
               G      F#/G   Em    D      C    B/G        Am
Write your letters in the sand for the day I take your hand
        Em           D             G
In the land that our grandchildren knew.

G (pickup chord)  D
     In the year of '39
               Em
Came a ship in from the blue
        C ~       G
The Volunteers came home that day
   D              Em   Em7
And they bring good news
C ~
Of a world so newly born
  D/G Dmaj       G
Though their so heavily weigh

G   D
For the earth is old and grey,
          B7
To a new home we'll away
         Em           Am (then passing notes C B A F#)
But my love this cannot be
    G                         D
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
C            Em    C     D       C  ( G) D
Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me.

          G                           C            G
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
G                         D
Don't you hear me calling you
               G      F#/G   Em    D      C    B/G     Am
All the letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand
        Em           D       G
For my life still ahead pity me.
