  • I been to cities that never close down
    From New York to Rio and Old London Town
    But no matter how far or how wide I roam
    I still call Australia home

    I'm always travelling
    I love being free
    And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea
    But my heart lies waiting over the foam
    I still call Australia home

    All the sons and daughters
    Spinning around the world
    Away from their family and friends
    But as the world gets older and colder
    Its good to know where your journey ends

    Someday we'll all be together once more
    When all of the ships come back to the shore
    I realise something I've always known
    I still call Australia home

    But no matter how far or wide I roam
    I still call Australia
    I still call Australia
    I still call Australia home

    But no matter how far or wide I roam
    I still call Australia
    I still call Australia
    I still call Australia home Writer/s: PETER W. ALLEN
