Lyrics

It's time to go, Jenny
No need to close the door
What if the dust gets in the house
It doesn't matter any more
You and the dust have been at war for far too many years
Now the war is over Jenny dear.

Leaving the land
Leaving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and everything I am
Leaving the land.

Remember when I brought you here
Those long bright years ago
For all that time you've been my heart
And this land has been my soul
The long bright days are over now but still the heart beats on
But Jenny dear the soul is gone.

Leaving the land
Leaving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and everything I am
Leaving the land.

I't time to go, Jenny
Drive quickly down the track
We'll never see what lies ahead if we keep on looking back
Behind is just an empty house
Old memories and ghosts
And our small dream gathering dust.

Leaving the land
Leaving the land
Leaving all I've ever been and everything I am
Leaving the land.
