Ivor Novello : Keep the Home Fires Burning (Till the Boys Come Home)

Novello, Ivor (biography)   (sheet music)
They were summoned from the hillside
They were called in from the glen
And the Country found them ready
At the stirring call for men
Let no tears add to their hardship
As the Soldiers pass along
And although your heart is breaking
Make it sing this cheery song

Keep the Home Fires burning
While your hearts are yearning
Though your lads are far away
They dream of home
There's a silver lining
Through the dark cloud shining
Turn the dark cloud inside out
Till the boys come Home

Over seas there came a pleading
"Help a Nation in distress!"
And we gave our glorious laddies
Honour made us do no less
For no gallant Son of Britain
To a foreign yoke shall bend
And no Englishman is silent
To the sacred call of "Friend!"
