This is quite a quirky little composition about Children and seeing their Dads
in Australia. Written and performed by Trevor Dunen of Essendon, Victoria. Phone
(03) 9375 4004. Don't alter it or change it, it's my composition. Have fun.
Anyone is welcome to record it. Copyright Trevor Dunen, November 2003.
 
G                     C                  D                G                  C     D
Every now an then I take a journey       I look to the horizon and I am drawn
          Am                       C                             G
5000 Miles away in the West my sons were born
 

G                      Am                 G                        D
She’s got their birthdays and they’ve got their toys
 
Am                             C                             G                      
And in the end  I just wanna be  with my boys
 

G          C                        Am       D                   G                   C   Am  D
We did homework and we went places             When  other kids play I see their faces
 

G                      C                         D    G              C           Am     D
I remember the times they arrived      Always a Morning, a quick panicked drive
 

G                              C                                        Am         D
Now their gone and I’ve moved on                    I tried so hard to get along
 
G                               C                        Am                    D
But that’s the way it has to be,          I’m coming back some day you’ll see!
 

G                 Am                 G                         D               Am                        C   G
She’s in the box seat, and she’s having her fun              And in the end I just wanna be with my sons
 

G         C       A               D          G            C                 A       D
I feel whole when I get near       Leaving that place is my biggest fear,
 
G               C                         D                    Am                       C     G
But I get a week and I feel OK                   The worst time for me is Christmas day
 
G                      Am                 G                        D
She’s got their birthdays and they’ve got their toys
 
Am                             C                             G
And in the end  I just wanna be  with my boys
 
G                 C                     Am                    D        G                 C       Am      D
The bus is winding through the desert night           Twelve more hours til my Melbourne flight
 
G             C                Am              D               Am                    C G
I feel I’m leaving my soul in Town               And I can’t cry, if I do I’ll drown
C                 Am                                   D     G                        C                  Am   D
But you’ve got hope and in the end,          You know those three little men       are your best friends!
