lyrics

Great God! This is an awful place
North winds howl from every direction
our slighted union jack over a blasted waste
a scene of the utmost desolation

and now, now for the run home
now, now for the run home

Great god! This is an awful place
we have laboured without reward of priority
Wilson's cigarette leaves a queer taste
like this letter from the king of Norway

and now, now for the run home
now, now for the run home

oh Evans fell behind
the Soldier stepped outside
The ponies are lying in their shambles
We knew we took a risk
out in the whirling drift
for God's sake look after our people

Great God! This is an awful place
things have come out against us
My love, we have no cause for complaint
but bow to the will of providence

and now, now for the run home
now, now for the run home

Oh I know you'll keep our son
out in the open air
and see that he does not become idle
it seems a pity now, but i cannot write any more
for God's sake look after our people!
