Celtic Thunder

Celtic Thunder - Christmas 1915

rate me

1915 on Christmas Day<br />

On the western front the guns all died away<br />

And lying in the mud on bags of sand<br />

We heard a German sing from no man's land<br />

He had tenor voice so pure and true<br />

The words were strange but every note we knew<br />

Soaring or the the living dead and dammed<br />

The German sang of peace from no man's land<br />

<br />

They left their trenches and we left ours<br />

Beneath tin hats smiles bloomed like wild flowers<br />

With photos, cigarettes, and pots of wine<br />

We bult a soldier's truce on the front line<br />

Their singer was a lad of 21<br />

We begged another song before the dawn<br />

And sitting in the mud and blood and fear<br />

He sang again the song all longed to hear<br />

<br />

Silent night, no cannons roar<br />

A king is born of peace for evermore<br />

All's calm, all's bright<br />

All brothers hand in hand<br />

In 19 and 15 in no man's land<br />

<br />

And in the morning all guns boomed in the rain<br />

And we killed them and they killed us again<br />

At night they charged we fought them hand to hand<br />

And I killed the boy that sang in no man's land<br />

<br />

Silent night no cannons roar<br />

A king is born of peace for evermore<br />

All's calm, all's bright<br />

All brothers hand in hand<br />

And that young soldier sings<br />

And the song of peace still rings<br />

Though the captains and all the kings<br />

Built no man's land<br/>

Sleep in heavenly peace</
