Old Copper coins

Dm Bb
Ive rubbed these two farthings together my love
F C
Two coins now which are as smooth as your skin
Dm Bb
And its only three days till they take us on board
F C
To Australia away, To Australia away,
Dm Bb
To a place neither know to our kith and our kin
C F
To Australia away

Ill engrave of my love and our lives on these coins
Ill engrave all that I hope you feel for me too
And in these three days I shall ponder our fate
To Australia away, To Australia away,
On that tall sailing ship neither soldier nor crew
To Australia away

One small coin for you and one small coin for me
Both shall we clasp for our memories my dear
For I know that we shall be forever apart
To Australia away, To Australia away,
Where no dream of love or her sighs to hear
To Australia away

Dm C F
Oh to dwell on the choice of the past
Dm C F
Oh to the songs and the joys of our youth
Bb F C
Down is the way of my lonesome path
Dm C F
To a land I know of nothing in trust or in truth

Is it fear for myself or for your lonely fate?
Or no chance of hope for our true love to bloom
So this small coin can only in part show my love
To Australia away, To Australia away,
To the chains and the gangs and my grief to consume
To Australia away
