A song about the plight of refugees, asylum seekers, wanting to find sanctuary in Australia, by Marianne Tozer and Lyndon Piddington, with further arrangement by Doug McPherson.  The song is offered in two keys, Em and Fm. Fm is probably the best key for singing this song. The Em version might usefully be used by guitarists, using a capo on the 1st fret.  The cropped format offers the potential for a larger printout. Look for a print setting that says, “Fit”, or “Fit to printer margins”.

This song is part of the Illawarra Union Singers’ repertoire.
