Lyrics

Yes, The War Is Over V.

(spoken)
She was someone’s daughter, maybe someone’s a mother
She might’ve been the sister of a dear, dear brother
I can’t say for sure, I don’t really know
But we watched the parade together there in the falling snow
And she said….

Yes, the war is over but I have lost my love
They’re dancing in the streets and theres a blue sky up above
The weapons they are resting in victory’s white glove
Yes, the war is over but I have lost my love

I got the message Western Union
I got his boots and uniform
And every letter I sent to him
Was wrapped up in the pocket…bloody stained and torn..

Yes the war is over but I have lost my love
They’re dancing in the streets and theres a blue sky up above
The weapons they are resting in victory’s white glove
Yes, the war is over but I have lost my love

I keep it hanging by the mantle
A shiny medal on a string
They say my hero died in battle
They say My Country ‘tis of Thee, and
Let Freedom Ring …and

Yes, the war is over but I have lost my love
They’re dancing in the streets and theres a blue sky up above
And the weapons they are dancing in victory’s white glove
Yes. the war is over…
bless the weary soldier…
………… yes the war is over
But I….have lost my love
