Lyrics

NO MAN'S LAND
The war machines thunder and roll, The skies are black, black as coal.
Zeppelins, ‘Or bloody fields afloat, War planes dive, their bombs explode.
Canon and rifle, fire far and near, Machine guns hungry for flesh to tear.
My fair one, flowers, your hair adorn, Of you I dream as I write this song.

My fair one, flowers you’re hair adorn, of you I dream as I write this song,
My fair one, my love, I wish you well, of you I dream while I’m in this hell.
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war,
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war, To War…

The mud, the filth, the choking smoke, Eyes burning, skin blisters and melts.
Yesterday’s friends, now at peace, not here, Come morning’s charge, to join them, I fear.
Kisers, Presidents, Ministers, Czars,
Upon these fields we are moved like pawns,
My fair one, my love, I wish you well, Of you I dream while I’m in this hell.

My fair one, flowers you’re hair adorn, of you I dream as I write this song,
My fair one, my love, I wish you well, of you I dream while I’m in this hell.
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war,
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war, To War…

(On your feet lads! Fix Bayonets! Get ready lads! Over the top ya go! Charge lads, Charge! And God Bless ya! God Bless ya all!)

My fair one, flowers you’re hair adorn, of you I dream as I write this song,
My fair one, my love, I wish you well, of you I dream while I’m in this hell.
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war,
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war, To War…
(To war, To war, To war, Ooooh…)

My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war,
My fair one, tell me before I’m gone, why must nations go to war, To War…

(No Man’s Land, No Man’s Land…..)
