Subject: Lyr Add: FAREWELL MY MARY ANNE
From: Shimbo Darktree
Date: 16 Oct 99 - 11:25 AM

FAREWELL MY MARY ANNE
From the singing of The Quare Fellas

I'm bidding farewell to the land of my youth
And the home I love so well.
To the mountains grand in my own fair land,
I'm bidding them all farewell.
With an aching heart, I bid them adieu.
Tomorrow I sail far away,
O'er the raging foam for to seek a home,
On the shores of Austral-i-ay.

CHORUS: So fare thee well, my darling Mary Anne.
We sail at the break of day
O'er the raging foam for to seek a home,
On the shores of Austral-i-ay.

It's not for the want of employment, I'm told.
It's not for the want of fame,
If fortune bright should shine over me,
And give me a glorious name.
Our land may be poor, but of this I'm sure:
We're welcome wherever we roam.
At the dawn of the day, we'll be sailing away
To the shores of Austral-i-ay.

And when we reach Fremantle town,
It's off to look for gold,
Where men get rich and there's plenty of girls,
Or so I have been told;
Where the heat and sand won't bother me.
Kalgoorlie we'll make our home.
At the dawn of the day, we'll be sailing away
To the shores of Austral-i-ay.

thanks for posting that. I know it as "Shores of Americay" with of course minor changes to fit the location. The version I know has been sung by Johnny McEvoy.

Yes, somebody mentioned to me the other day that "Shores
of Americay" would have been the source of this song.

Regards,
Shimbo
