Far Away in Australia

Publié le par Delphine

Une très belle valse. Souvent entendue lors des "tea time" des ceilis en Irlande. Et quand on la danse avec un irlandais, celui-ci la fredonne en même temps, c'est extra :). Annick (oui, notre Annick de Bourg !) nous a fait l'honneur de nous la chanter au O'Jitsey's Corner Pub de mars : immersion immédiate dans nos bons souvenirs... Merci infiniment !

Sweetheart, I'm bidding you fond farewell
I would be yours some day
I'm bound for a new land, my fortune to try
And I'm ready to sail away

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome at last
The girl I've left behind


Oh, you can't leave me the spoon didn't said
I would not let you go
But I must leave you, he gently replied
If for only a while, you know

Far away in Australia
Soon will fate be kind
And I will be ready to welcome at last
The girl I've left behind


Now in success or in failure
I will always be true
I'm proud in each day in a land far away
I've been building a home for you

Daily she waits at the old cottage gate
Watching the whole day through
Then one day a message from over the sea
And I'm hoping these words are true

Far away in Australia
Now us called the time
When I am ready to welcome at last
The girl I've left behind
