Woodbine Willie, Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy, World War I, Trench warfare, Battle of the Somme, Wilfred Owen, Ypres
Throw me a line You know I'm sinking The place and the time They don't mean much anymore I got a picture of you In my top-left hand pocket And I'd give the world Just to see you one more time. CHORUS ----------- All of the colours bleed into red Jack fell down and broke his crown Shot throught the head All the King's horses were felled in the rain Woodbines sent from Heaven Ease the pain of the lame. ----------- Shattered and torn Nothing lasts forever No room for the weak No growing old together The horror of horrors Rain children's tears of laughter I'll see you again In the happy ever after. CHORUS
