Emigration Song (Moke)

There’s been a lot between us Such a lot between us And somehow the road ahead got closed I left the home of a lifetime And even now I’d have to walk the same line Knowing the road ahead will close. I wish I’d stayed when you asked me But I was so young and carefree Not knowing that the road ahead could close. If only I could face my fear Then you could wipe away the tear That’s stayed so long on mother’s cheek Lets raise the flag and sing the song To keep the home fires burning on What we have we’ll never give away. So i tried to move a mountain So many now, that i’ve stopped counting And always the road ahead is closed. They tried to cover their traces They lied to hide their faces But someday their road ahead will close. If only I could face my fear Then you could wipe away the tear That’s stayed so long on mother’s cheek Lets raise the flag and sing the song To keep the home fires burning on What we have we’ll never give away... Lets raise the flag and sing the song To keep the home fires burning on What we have we’ll never give away...
