    Lyrics

    Who will march for peace
    Now that the last of the diggers has gone
    All those who were released
    From Sulva Bay and from the Somme
    The Mallee is whipped by sand
    A great new silence blankets the land
    We sure need the stone age
    In the coming century
    Who will feed the poor
    Now that the saint of the gutters is gone
    Who will hear the call
    You lately come or native born
    For the touch of the Master's hand
    The eye of the Master still watches the lamb
    We sure need the Stone Age
    In the coming century
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers has won
    Who gets sent to war
    Who'll lose a child to a foreign coast
    Who will leave our shore
    And come home rattling like a ghost
    This country can be cruel
    It'll leave you with scars that never heal
    We sure need the stone age in the coming century
    Still gonna need some stone age in the coming century
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers
    The last of the diggers has won
