Slim Dusty - Answer To The Silvery Moonlight Trail

Your rating:
I'm sure you all remember, a song of yesterday,
Was widely known throughout each home on many an

Was sung by one whose name and fame for years yet shall 
And now here is my answer, to the Silvery Moonlight 

Our thoughts lie o'er the ocean, to Canada far away,
We gaze upon the ranch house, where the rangeland 
cattle stray,
We see a fair young woman, a baby on her knee,
The cowboy that she honours, stands guard across the 

That day there came a letter, from the cowboy o'er the 
He'd soon be home to see them and never more would he 
A smile caressed her dear face, a tear drop blurred 
each line
As fin'lly at the bottom, these words she sure did 

How is my little darlin', my bonny baby boy

with joy,
Take care of darlin' mother, and wait just for the 
When we'll have fun together, on the range at round-up 

The teardrops came unbidden into her loving eyes,
The moon rose in it's splender into the great dreary 
She gazed upon her baby, asleep now in her arms,
And thanked God for His mercy and for that bundle of 
The old moon smiled up yonder, he also knows the tale,
And so we feel in silence from the Silvery Moonlight
