The Diggers Rest

Print Save Become a Fan
On mornings, Long Long ago
On shore that we today, will never know
Stood soldiers bearing arms of war
so generations off would see this sight no more.
But on that morn of long ago
Our boys took time to rest
For after all the battles fought
They were deemed the very best
And like all wars thatís ever fought
For many soldiers, on that day
There's lives, that are cut short
were entombed forever, where they lay
But of all of those that returned to us
Bore scars that none can see
And they laid their lives, on the line for us
For Australia, you and me.
I saw them just the other day
With ribbons as medals flash
With uniforms, and keeping step
With dignity, bearing, dash
But my mind and heart , Go wafting back
To the ranks of Aussies best,
And to all their mates, that were left there
That earned, their Diggers Rest
They paid the price .....That we may be free
