about

A true story of a young man (Thomas Caldwell) who enlists during World War 1

lyrics

My name is Thomas Caldwell,I work on the land
Sowing,feeding,growing,reaping,toiling with my hand
I dream of adventure,far from the hills I know so well
Where a young man can live a life and have stories to tell
I saw his face on a wall and it seemed to ring true
When he pointed his finger,your country needs you

Walking down this old road,my bag in my hand
A song in my heart,I'm going to see another land
On the ship that awaits me I'll find my new friends
I can feel my life beginning now,God knows where it will end

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
Will I ever see them again?
The peace of tonight,the morning I'll be leaving
My face to the soft summer rain

Cruel times came along and stole away my dreams
War and adventure are not what they may seem
We are pins on the map,we are pawns in the game
So many good men will die today and tomorrow,the same

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
Will I ever see them again?
The fear of the night,the crying of the dying
Awash in the mud and the rain

Lying here in this hole,my eyes to the Flanders sky
My brothers hold my head,it's my time to die
Twenty two years of age as I go to my rest
I hope I made a difference,but only time will tell I guess

All the green fields,the hills that surround them
I can see them clearly again
The wind gently blows,soon I'll be leaving
But my soul will always remain

My name is Thomas Caldwell,I work on the land
Sowing,feeding,growing,reaping,toiling with my hand.
