Where Has My Australia Gone

 Where Has My Australia Gone – Words and Music Terry and Jenny Bennetts

We have changed, down through the years
What makes us unique will surely disappear
If we carry on, down this road that we hurry on
There was a time remember when
Life seemed to be so simple then
Now as we move on, where has my Australia gone
 
Were you’d say g’day, how you going mate
We were Aussies make no mistake
When the shake of a hand, was the word of a man
There’d be an old bush dance, every Saturday night
Me and the boys would share a beer outside
We didn’t need to take more, still had the time of our lives
 
Where has my Australia gone, Will you be back someday
Hope it won’t be to long, but I still love you anyway
 
We never had, to lock a door
There never was any reason for
Nobody came, to take all our things away
And we were free to roam, with your mates on our own
By tea time is when you must be home
Could you imagine if, we could still do that today
 
So for those who died, to keep us free
Do we make them proud when they look down and see
Just how we’re d oing today, or would they turn in their graves
So teach our kids, the old bush songs
Go waltzing with Banjo by a billabong
Tell of the old ways, and maybe they won’t have to say
 
Where has my Australia gone, Will you be back someday
Hope it won’t be to long, but I still love you anyway
Where has my Australia gone, Will you be back someday
Hope it won’t be to long, but I still love you anyway
Hope it won’t be to long, but I still love you anyway
