Remembrance Day

For our king and our country and the promise of glory
We came from Kingston and Brighton to fight on the front lines
Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities
Not meant to be soldiers we lay in the trenches

Face the fighting with a smile, so we said,
"If only we had known what danger lay ahead."

Well, the sky turned to grey as we went into battle
On the fields of Europe, young men were falling
"I'll be back for you some day, it won't be long
If I can just hold on 'til this bloody war is over

CHORUS: The guns will be silent on Remembrance Day
There'll be no more fighting on Remembrance Day


songwriter: Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance

performed by: Bryan Adams

date released: 1987 by Bryan Adams
