They were summoned from the hillside
They were called in from the glen
And the country found them ready,
At the stirring call for men
Let no tears add to their hardship
As the soldiers pass along
And although your heart is breaking
Make it sing this cheer--y sooooong
Keep the homes fires burn-ing
While your hears are yearn---ing
Though your lads are far a-way
They dream of home
There's a silver lin-ing
Through the dark cloud shin---ing
Turn the dark in-side out
'Till the boys come home
Verse 2 lyrics:
Over seas there came a pleading,
"Help a Nation in distress!"
And we gave our glorious laddies,
Honor made us do no less.
For no gallant Son of Freedom
To a tyrant's yoke should bend,
And a noble heart must answer
To the sacred call of "Friend!"
Thought this song would be a fitting tribute to GB after such a fantastic Olympics! Roll on Rio!
