Ivor Novello – Keep The Home Fires Burning chords
I hope this transcription of the changes is enjoyed by all old and young - I was shocked when I couldn't find this 1914 classic on the site so thought I've submitted it for you all. Thanks! Verses:A E7 AThey were summoned from the hillsideDm AThey were called in from the glenE7 AAnd the country found them ready,E B7 E A E A EAt the stirring call for menA E7 ALet no tears add to their hardshipDm A B7As the soldiers pass alongC#m F#mAnd although your heart is breakingE G#m F#m B7 E F#m/E E6 E7Make it sing this cheer--y sooooongChorus:A A/E E7Keep the homes fires burn-ingF#m C#7aug C#7While your hears are yearn---ingD AThough your lads are far a-wayB7 E7They dream of homeA A/E E7There's a silver lin-ingF#m C#7aug C#7Through the dark cloud shin---ingD ATurn the dark in-side outDm6 A/E E7 A'Till the boys come homeVerse 2 lyrics: Over seas there came a pleading, "Help a Nation in distress!" And we gave our glorious laddies, Honor made us do no less. For no gallant Son of Freedom To a tyrant's yoke should bend, And a noble heart must answer To the sacred call of "Friend!" Thought this song would be a fitting tribute to GB after such a fantastic Olympics! Roll on Rio! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivor_Novello
