about

This tracks conveys the story of our first cricket captain, Charles Lawrence, and the journey of our first X1 from Western Victoria to Queenscliff. Surviving the rough terrain, inclement weather and an ambush that was adverted by Lawrence protecting the team by firing the first shots.

lyrics

I’ve seen the sunrise in Dublin city and the meadows of Edinburgh
Now I’m in this bush town Harrow, with Red gums and different stars

How I wait for this journey, if the old boys could see me now
They’ll be filled with endless wonder

Red gums and different stars

And I’ll - ride, all the way to Queenscliff
And I’ll- sail, over the sea
And I’ll- fight, more than the crease

Red Gums and different stars.
Time to roll on.

Rolling out on this horse draw carriage, these roads are rough as hell
Fresh meat cooked by firelight, laughter fills the air.

These hands weren’t meant for this life, city and towns made them soft.
Wagon wheel against a hard rock, Cuzens flies through the air.

And I’ll - ride, all the way to Queenscliff
And I’ll- Sail, over the sea
And I’ll- fight, more than the crease

Red Gums and different stars.
Time to roll on

Dark clouds ahead
Ambush awaits
Out come their guns
I don’t wait I give them one

And I’ll - ride, all the way to Queenscliff
And I’ll- Sail, over the sea
And I’ll- fight, more than the crease

Red Gums and different stars.
Time to roll on.
