Tonight here by the roadside I've been drivin' hard all day Dreamin' of the old folks

And a homestead o'er the way In dreams I see the old place I'll be there within a week Where there's gum trees by the roadway And the willows by the creek I see the homestead cattle As around the place they roam The old man with the horses On the fields of gold alone And mother in the doorway Just to make this scene complete With gum trees by the roadway And the willows by the creek Oh I'd like to tell my story In a simple kind of way It happened to many hundreds In this war-torn world today I heard the call for duty So I donned the khaki suit And I marched 'way from the gumtrees And the willows by the creek But when you land in trouble And you're placed behind those bars That's when you start thinking Of the country moon and stars And when at last they free you And you step out on the street Nothing then could hold you From the homestead by the creek That's why tonight I'm standing By this cheery roadside fire Takin' in the country Underneath the summer stars And from now on you will find me Where the air is fresh and sweet Where forever there'll be gum trees And the willows by the creek
