Liner Notes: 

Have over the years been compiling a list of songs for a concept of a Grandfather, father, boy going off to war and doing a visual stage show with it starting with WW1

This was one of the first songs I wrote back when 16 (only wrote about 5 songs till I was 40!!)

So the war theme has been big in my life but needless to say I was only years away from being called up if the Vietnam war continued and dont know if I would have been a conscientious objector...

There are roughly 12 songs done which cut the mustard (others not quite), some such as this one for WW1, others such as

Looking at latter day wars etc.

What is interesting and no doubt why it came to mind when waking this morning was getting a picture of Australia in 1920 and seeing people have to wear masks due to the Spanish Flu. Down here in Melbourne Aus, we are now having to wear mask outside or cop a $200 Fine!!!

Lyrics: 

Tomorrow I’ll be gone Draft RogersonLB

V1
Last week a man came to town
Saying come see the world
Sign here my friend

CHorus
Seeing the sun fall down
Long shadows stretch across the ground
Haze in the sky settles in
Cattle slowly make their way back home
Tomorrow I’ll be gone

V2
See mum is holding back tears
Asking me please to stay
Please don’t break my heart

CHorus
Seeing the sun fall down
Long shadows stretch across the ground
Haze in the sky settles in
Cattle slowly make their way back home
Tomorrow I’ll be gone

Bridge
There’s not much time before it ends
Wont get this chance again

CHorus
Seeing the sun fall down
Long shadows stretch across the ground
Haze in the sky settles in
Cattle slowly make their way back home
Tomorrow I’ll be gone

I love how it's most chorus, especially since the chorus is so good, so rich with detail. The repetition is very effective, and all the more poignant from our position of hindsight
