Poem: "Tobruk Bay"
In an old Australian Homestead So she joined a band of Sisters
With the roses round the door Underneath the Cross of Red
A girl received a letter Just to forget the heartache
That had just come from the War Of her lad who now lay dead
With her Motherís arms around her Many suitors came to woo her
She gave way to sobs and sighs But they sadly turned away
And as she read the letter When she told them all her story
The tears fell from her eyes.
Why do I weep Why do I weep
Why do I cry Why do I cry
My loveís asleep My loveís asleep
So far away So far away
He played his part He played his part
That April morn That April morn
And left my heart in
