The Diggers' Legacy Lyrics

Did you think that we'd forget you m ate W ith the sIow m arch of the years? That as tim e passed we'd wipe the sIate Of your sorrow and your tears? Did you think we'd scorn your sacrifice And find no honour in the debt? W hen your Iives paid our freedom 's price How then couId we forget?

And that's the Diggers' Iegacy The freedom we hoId yet W e never can repay them And we never shouId forget

Did you think we'd take for granted AII you fought to keep aIive? That the seeds your courage pIanted W ouId struggIe to survive? W hen m others fathers daughters sons Gave their bIood and tears and sweat To nourish a peace so dearIy won How then couId we forget?

A Digger stands in every town On soIem n sad parade W hiIe beneath his feet as the years roII round The nam es there sIowIy fade But around him in the strong em brace Of the freedom he defended A nation sure of pride and pIace Reaches for the vision spIendid.
