Bill From Swan Hill

A gentle enough sort of a fellow is Bill
He first saw light of day in the Town of Swan Hill
Twenty six years old and partnered a likeable bloke in his own pleasant way
At the peak of his life's prime one of him might say
The freeways of Australia he drives up and down
Between cities distant from his original hometown
Delivering freight a big heavy truck he drives through the night
His face to the roadhouse owners a familiar sight
Though mostly a fellow of no fixed abode
He lives in Richmond in Victoria when he is not on the road
In the home of his dark haired lover the beautiful Ann
She has fallen in love with the truck driving man
Pregnant with his child she's expecting in May
True love does not have borders as some like to say.
