'39

This song is by Swingin' Utters and appears on the split album BYO Split Series/Volume II (1999) by Swingin' Utters and Youth Brigade.

This song is a cover of "'39" by Queen.
In the year of '39 assembled here the volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Never looked back, never feared, never cried

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand

In the land that our grandchildren knew
In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born

Thought their years so heavenly weigh
For the earth is old and grey, little darling we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year

Your mother's eyes from your eyes cry to me
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand

For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew
Don't you hear my call though your many years away
Do you hear me calling you

All your letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand
For my life still ahead pity me
