Subject: Lyr Add: Dover Delaware (Jez Lowe)
Well I walked Delmarva roads a stranger
Threw my stone far across the bay
Sang my song to a foreign ocean
And dreamed of England far away

Then the darkness split to see a soldier
Struck by the spin of the beacon light
Take your tune he said ... treat it tender
And make good use of it tonight

   Sing a love song for the first to fall
   Keep singing 'til they fight no more
   Tell me love that I'll be waiting there
    In Dover, Delaware Dover, Delaware

Dark and grey, the cold Atlantic
Dark and grey stand the ships in line
Waiting for another tide turn
Set to fight for one more time

(   So) Sing a love song for the first to fall etc

I'll watch the shore fade behind me
Watch the smoke from the grey ship's stack
I'll watch the cannon and the bomb fall
And when it's done they'll bring me back

   Sing a love song etc x2
