Lyrics

War Is Over 


 


I’m a long lost boy returning


Home from a bloody war in a far off land


It’s good to see my sisters and my brothers


And the folks I left behind


 


I’ve seen my share of heroes


Men with broken hearts but I never saw them cry


Battle scarred and weary, many have gone


But me and young Jim survived


 


I bring peace and I bring joy


I’m a home town boy


And I’m proud of the place I was raised in


I’ve been ten thousand miles


And I’ll stay for a while


And I won’t let no time go a-wasting


War is over, times are changing


 


I’ll go walking on Sunday morning


Down by the old school yard where I first met Marie


I guess she’s found a new love but I’m hoping she might


Still remember me


 


l carry that worn out picture


That I took the day I sailed across the sea


I was lost without a trace but life goes on


And I still love Marie


 


I bring peace and I bring joy


I’m a home town boy


And I’m proud of the place I was raised in


I’ve been ten thousand miles


And I’ll stay for a while


And I won’t let no time go a-wasting


War is over, times are changing
