GUEST,PatJoe Lyr Req: When the Battle's O'er (15) Lyr Add: THE BATTLE'S O'ER (rec by Andy Stewart) 18 May 01

As recorded by Andy Stewart

1. I returned to the fields of glory
Where the green grass and flowers grow,
And the wind softly sings the story
Of the brave lads of long ago.

March no more, my soldier laddie.
There is peace where there once was war.
Sleep in peace, my soldier laddie.
Sleep in peace now the battle’s o’er.

2. In the great glen, they lie a-sleeping
Where the cool waters gently flow,
And the grey mist is sadly weeping
For those brave lads of long ago. CHORUS

3. See the tall grasses there are waving
As their banners of long ago
With their heads high were forward braving
Stepping lightly to meet the foe. CHORUS

4. Some returned from the fields of glory
To their loved ones who held them dear,
But some fell in their hour of glory
And were left to their resting here. CHORUS
