Life and Romance

Life of romance and adventure of the Australian pioneer

378 984

In a time gone by there was a romance for adventure
The pleasures of a city left far behind, of houses
On busy streets, a mansion on a hill
Friends that adventurers cherished

A fever that attracted, many
From the cities, the roar of voices and traffic
Memories of joys and faces, were gone in a flash
Now in their place a coach wheel creek along a rugged track
As they make their way across a wilderness of everlasting plains

Pioneers they were that built mud slab huts
Sometimes camping by an embankment
Settling on new selections
On the frontier of a new nation

As they worked their new selections
In weariness and pain, pioneers now bronzed
From the red hot sun
Secrets of pioneers now held in grave sites of many

In a time gone by, there was a romance for adventure
The pleasures of a city left far behind, of houses
On busy streets, a mansion on a hill
Friends that adventurers cherished

Travel this land and you will see many dreams that never came true
Camp under the stars, look for a star that will show you the way
But there is a silence about the country, like a gentle touch of God
That will show you a track once traveled by pioneers
For he will understand your desire for adventure

Those that traveled before you will show you the way
Pioneers now hear the beating of your heart as you travel their road
They have shown you the way with their sacrifice
You now have faced the wilderness of those whom ventured far

And now with a hearts desire to accept the challenge
Of Pioneers that made this nation what it is today
