This song was written in the 70's, by a bloke called John Schuman and performed by him in a band called "Redgum". It became a national hit especially among Veterans almost immediately. It is still performed today whenever Vietnam Vets get together for a concert. Royalties from sales were donated to the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia.
Just a few things that may help you understand the lyrics better.
