The Former Rose Of MacArthur

In light brown hair dyes she covers her gray
The former Rose of MacArthur is seventy today
From her Hometown in South west Victoria she grows old far away
With her husband of forty seven years Tony in Byron Bay
With six teenage grandchildren time on her and Tony does keep ticking on
Their best years in life to the forever gone
She was the Rose of MacArthur fifty years ago
Time eventually does become everyone's foe
When her wavy shoulder length hair was nugget brown
The pin up girl of all the young men of the town
A young woman of great charm and beautiful to behold
Tony won her heart and with him she grows old
Far north of MacArthur in coastal Northern New South Wales today
In their home by the sunlit beach of Byron Bay.
