I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very long
Before I would stand with another boy in front of me
And a corpse that just fell into me, with the bullets flying
round

And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting
on
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to
wear
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're
waiting for
This letter to arrive because I'll be here quite a whil
