Deportation to Australia

Story Behind the Song

It started with the riff and the words just followed, it just had that sort of feeling about it.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Love your creativity and story-telling. Instrumentation plays well with the mood of your story. The slide (or dobro) is a little used technique but it plays well in your tune. The hook is very evident and the story is very easy to follow. Congratulations, nice job.

    - Randy Steward

Loved this so sad story...loved your music that you played with this song...your harmony was well placed..this is not just a song but a ballad and history for so many...well done I can hear a whole cd of songs like this...I was privileged to review this song...

    - Delta Burnett Reed
Lyrics

Australia

Don't strain your eyes boys
Nothing there to see
The sun's stop shining boys
For the likes of you and me
Some say the gallows
Was a better place to be
And we'll be lucky if we live to see Australia

Young Davey Lacey
Chained up next to me
Known him since when he was
Upon his Mama's knee
Got into drinking
And wretched company
And he'll be lucky if he lives to see Australia

And you're so far behind me now
My heart is breaking
Like the waves across the bow

Don't fear the journey boys
Don't fear the raging sea
Don't fear the shackles boys
The crew are no more free
If we should flounder boys
We'll all have company
And we'll be lucky if we live to see Austalia
