Written by Claire Hastings

lyrics

My great grandfather he worked on the land
Between river and railway with horse and by hand
A son and a grandson were eager to follow
They all called it home for a life of tomorrows
I remember it still, the house at Rosehill

My mother would collect all the apples from the garden
And all who stepped foot in the summer would have some
The door always open for neighbours and friends
Who’d arrive at midday but stay long after ten
I remember it still, the house at Rosehill

At Christmas time a man would appear by the clothes line
My sister and I being young at the time
Two pebbles for eyes and a scarf he would borrow
We didn’t stop to think he’d be gone by tomorrow
I remember it still, the house at Rosehill

And now all the shoes they have gone from the door
The Clydesdales and collies, they don’t work here anymore
Through four generations, many decades and milestones
We’ve all got our stories from the place we called home
I remember it still
We remember it still
I remember it still, the house at Rosehill
