about

This is a live recording from 'Tales from Home : Live at the Manor House' that I am sharing for one week as a way to commemorate 75 years since the Coventry Blitz.

This song is written about my Great Grandad who was a Fireman in the Coventry Blitz. Once particular night he stayed at home to finish his dinner which meant he didn't go out on duty with the rest of his crew. Sadly on that night his crew never returned home.

This is a free download for 1 week.

lyrics

The morning light was filled with fire
And he felt the courage in the air
His wife called him in the backyard
'Darling I have something awful to tell'

He sat down on his old wooden chair
She held his hand and looked him in the eye
'Darling, what is that you need to tell?'
Well the sadness in her eyes, well it broke his heart

Your boys have gone
Your boys have gone

For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again
For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again
I can see the whites in the my childs' eyes
And the sun rise again
For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again

He looked out on those Cathedral spires
Well his guilt and grace for company
He scream, 'that should, that should have been me'
I could've saved them, I could've saved, I could've save them

My boys have gone
My boys have gone

For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again
For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again
I can see the whites in the my childs' eyes
And the sun rise again
For the souls of my brothers I can leave home
I can leave home again
