The Road to Gundagai

Melody - Jack O'Hagan, 1922

There's a scene that lingers in my memory,
Of an old bush home and friends I long to see;
That's why I am yearning
Just to be returning
Along the road to Gundagai.
  To come and be a child again,
To leave behind the sorrow on my way,
That's where I am playing,
Where those gums are swaying
Along the road to Gundagai,

There's a track winding back
To an old-fashioned shack,
Along the road to Gundagai;
Where the blue gums are growing,
And the Murrumbidgee's flowing
Beneath that sunny sky,
Where my Daddy and Mummy are waiting for me
And the pals of my childhood once more I will see;
Then no more will I roam,
When I'm heading straight for home,
Along the road to Gundagai.
