I have a lot of trouble understanding this. Do you have any of the song transcribed, Lance? Can you post what you have?

Hi

The missing line is:

We'll go to Spain, face Franco's thugs, comrades in a socialist crusade.

I've got the song saved somewhere, I'll post it once I've tracked it down.

Here you go:

Abide With Me Love

The war's come at last love
And I must answer the call
We're going across to Flanders
We'll bring the Kaiser's fall
We'll be home by Christmas
I'll be safe you'll see
So 'til the war is over
Dolly wait for me

Chorus:
Abide with me love
Do not March away
You say that You must join the fight
With me you cannot stay
Can't you hear the barns a crying
I beg on bended knee
Don't go a-warring love
Abide with me

I'm going across to Paris pet
To join the International Brigades
We'll go to Spain, face Franco's thugs
Comrades in a socialist crusade
Then when our cause it is won
And the people of Spain are free
Then I'll come home to you love
So Briget wait for me

We'll the shadow of war's across Europe
We're sailing in the morn
We'll stand with our allies
And weather Hitler's storm
We've beaten Jerry once before
We've got the pedigree
Then I'll return to Blighty
So Mary wait for me

The UN's sending us to Korea
To stem the communist surge
We'll fight for the free world
Civilisation's on the verge
Then when my service it is done
I'll come back across the sea
And I'lol be back in Civvy Street
So Rita wait for me

In the war against terror
They're sending us to Iraq
We'll find the tyrant's weapons
In our cause we will not slack
I'll be on the front line
One of the first you'll see
Then when the mission's over...
David wait for me

Andy
