Lesley sings 2 verses, We join in chorus
In an old Australian homestead
With the roses around the door
A girl received a letter
Just newly from the war
With her mother’s arms around her
She gave way to sobs and sighs
And as she read the letter
The tears fell from her eyes
Why does she weep?
Why does she sigh?
Her loves asleep so far away
He played his part that august day
And left her heart on Suvla Bay.
