Remembrance Day is a song written for the album “Into The Fire” as a tribute to the soldiers who fought in WW1. (World War 1) This recording features a new vocal from Bryan – live – to the original TV track. Written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance Film made on an iPhone. Remembrance Day For our king and our country and the promise of glory We came from Kingston and Brighton to fight on the front line Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities Not meant to be soldiers we lay in the trenches We’d face the fighting with a smile – or so we said If only we had known what danger lay ahead The sky turned to grey as we went into battle On the fields of Europe young men were fallin’ I’ll be back for you someday – it won’t be long If I can just hold on ’til this bloody war is over The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day There’ll be no more fighting on Remembrance Day By October of 18 Cambrai had fallen Soon the war would be over and we’d be returnin’ Don’t forget me while I’m gone far away Well it won’t be long ’till I’m back there in your arms again The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day There’ll be no more fighting on Remembrance Day One day soon – I don’t know when You know we’ll all be free; and the bells of peace will ring again The time will come for you and me We’ll be goin’ home when this bloody war is ended The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day We’ll all say a prayer on Remembrance Day On Remembrance Day – say a little prayer On Remembrance Day Well the guns will be silent There’ll be no more fighting Oh we’ll lay down our weapons On Remembrance Day
This is a great song and I will be playing it today.
