A Stranger In Buninyong

From where i now live in kilometers a long distance away
And perhaps i would be a stranger in Buninyong today
A few decades ago there i was quite well known
And they treated me as they would one of their own
The beer tasted good in the old Crown Hotel
Where my workmates and i did become known quite well
But some of the ageing patrons we knew there have since passed away
Among the deceased of the Village their bones now do lay
Today in Buninyong in Victoria that lovely old place
I realize mine would be an ageing stranger's face
I would even be a stranger in The Crown Hotel
Where twenty four years ago i was known quite well
Today a stranger in Buninyong is all i could be
Absence can make us this way would you not agree?
