Settler’s Wife By Marilla Homes Pain and sorrow, trouble and strife All just part of a settler’s life Weave and spin in the dust and tin Spare a thought for the settler’s wife Hey ho for the settler’s life Hey ho for the settler’s wife [x2] Clear the scrub and till the land See the callous on the settler’s hand She cooks for four and she eats for two She doesn’t get much with the settler’s band Hey ho for the settler’s hands Hey ho for the settler’s band [x2] Shearing sheep will break your back Pass it on to the settler’s jack Keeping house while the settler’s out Wond’ring if he will ever come back Hey ho for the settler’s jack Hey ho will he ever come back? [x2] Going to the bank after fire and flood A bullet through the skull of the settler’s stud Sifting through the ash and the dust and mud All but covered in the settler’s blood Hey ho for the settler’s stud Hey ho for the settler’s blood [x2] Pain and sorrow, trouble and strife All just part of a settler’s life Weave and spin in the dust and tin Spare a thought for the settler’s wife Hey ho for the settler’s life Hey ho for the settler’s wife [x2]

Keep by Marilla Homes Keep the home fires burning Keep the candles well alight Keep the home fires burning And keep your smile shining bright Keep the joys and not the sorrows Keep the lover not the pain Keep the hope of new tomorrows And keep the lesson not the shame CHORUS Share the tears and the laughter Share the ups and downs as well Share the joy forever after The fear of loneliness to quell CHORUS Make the most of every moment Make the best of every day Make your life a true exponent Of peace and love along the way CHORUS
