Lyrics

Streets of Adelaide / Old Soldier

I remember you marching on the streets of Adelaide
Medals shining, flashing in the Anzac Day parade
You never spoke of it and I too young to ask and too afraid
The sacrifice and suffering
Of lives that changed forever in a day

I remember you holding up your head so proud
At the cenotaph hear the long dead voices call out loud
Blowing reveille in the cold and misty dawn of remembrance
The sad and sacred reverie
Of the many good souls stolen away

Old Soldier, now you’ve gone
Left with the battalions of souls singing a victory song
Goin’ home, old soldier goin’ home

I remember him marching on the streets of Adelaide
He ever spoke of it and I too young to ask and too afraid
Medals shining, flashing in the Anzac Day parade

Goin’ home old soldier goin’ home
Goin’ home old soldier marchin’ home
Goin’ home old soul, old soldier goin’ home
