Johnny and I both walked to the church,
we held each others hand.
It was 1941 when our honeymoon was planned.
Then something happened to our world
and Johnny had to go,
to fight a war instead of loving one who loved him so.
I never can forget the day my Johnny went away,
my heart was in my throat,
I didn't know what I could say,
to help him through the hard times,
and the things he might go through,
but suddenly I said,
“Australia loves you Johnny blue.
Australia remembers the love we hardly even knew.
Always remember darling Johnny when you're far away,
I will always love you right to your very dying day “
We wrote each other letters while the war was going on.
I told him how I prayed that soon
the war would all be gone.
Then just like that my prayers were answered,
for good news had come.
The war was over!
Johnny's battle had been fought and won.
I met Johnny at the church and said,
“God how I've missed you.”
I fell into his open arms and he said,
“I love you.
Do you remember before I left,
all you said was true ,
Australia remembers our love,
and I still remember you.”
