Lyrics

Dear Jane ©? J Aitken 2021

Dear Jane,
Thanks for the comfort in your letter
It always boosts morale to hear from home
I Hope you're all safe and keeping well
I've been so long away, I ne'er can tell
There's thousands of soldiers, just like me
Living pawns in a game of strategy.

Ch
When you hear the church bells ringing, triumphant voices singing
You can take it I'll be on my way home
Though the deep blue waters part us, they'll never separate us
For you're always in my thoughts when I'm alone....
You're always in my thoughts when I'm alone.

V2
Sometimes when I'm in the field of battle
Where destiny plays each and every hand
I get to asking if I am above
But I wake to realise the strength of love
For I picture both my son and you, sweet Jane
And I hope he'll reunite us once again.
Ch
When you hear the church bells ringing, triumphant voices singing
You can take it I'll be on my way home
Though the deep blue waters part us, they'll never separate us
For you're always in my thoughts when I'm alone....
You're always in my thoughts when I'm alone.

V3
Right now I'm wondering why we're fighting
Sacrifice is high; but must go on
I think when war is O'er, I'll write a book
And title it, "The Path we Never Took"
We've got to aim to win this bloody game
Until then I'll end my Letters Just the same

New Chorus:
Can you hear the Church Bells Ringing, triumphant voices singing
You can take it, I am on my way home
Though the deep blue waters part us, they never separate us
For your letters made sure, I was not alone
For your letters made sure, I was not alone.
