A telegram arrived today,
it is time to catch the Monteray,
cos' the man i wed' he waits for me,
and the daughter that he's yet to see,
the U.S navy beamed its message,
we'll deliver brides on a one way passage,
it made big news accross the nation,
the bridal train leaves from perth station,

chorus
all the girls around Australia,
married to a yankee sailor,
your fare is paid across the sea,
to the home of the brave,
and the land of the free,
from west to east the young girls came,
all aboard the bridal train,
it was a farewell crossing of their land,
shes gone to meet her sailor man,

no time for sad good byes,
she held her mother as she cried,
then waited there in the freo rain,
to climb aboard the bridal train,
well she was holding her future in her hand,
a faded photo of a man,
catch a sailor if you can,
the war bride leaves her southern land,

chorus
all the girls around Australia,
married to a yankee sailor,
your fare is paid across the sea,
to the home of the brave,
and the land of the free,
from west to east the young girls came,
all aboard the bridal train,
it was a farewell crossing of her land,
shes gone to meet her sailor man,

this is the story of those starry nights,
through desert plains and city lights,
through burning sun, and driving rain,
she wept aboard the bridal train,

chorus
all the girls around Australia,
married to a yankee sailor,
your fare is paid across the sea,
to the home of the brave,
and the land of the free,
from west to east the young girls came,
all aboard the bridal train,
it was a farewell crossing of their land,
shes gone to meet her sailor man,
