Queen - '39
G In thDe year of '39.... AssembEmled here the volunteers
In the dCays when Glands were Dfew Here the Emship sailed Em7out into the
CBlue and sunny morn Dsus4Sweetest sDight ever sGeen.
And night followed day, and the story tellers say
That the Emscore brave souls insAmide
For Gmany a lonely day sailed aDcross the milky seas
CNe'er looked Emback, Cnever Dfeared, CneverG crDied.

GDon't you heaCr me calling yDou
Write your lettGers iB7n the sEmand foEm7r the day CI takeG your hanAmd
In the land that our grandchildren knew.
G In Dthe year of '39 came Ema ship in from the blue
TChe volunteers cGame home thaDt day
AEmnd they brinEm7g good news of a worCld so newly born
Dsus4 Though their Dhearts so heavilyG weigh
