Testo / Lyrics: Graham Lyle
Through the fields of St. Etienne
Amidst the corn I wander
In my hand an ear of corn
The morning dew has kissed

Here beneath the skies
I lay with my lover
While the summer winds
Gathered clouds of war

Au revoir, my love
Though the reasons pass me
Why we can't remain
In the fields of St. Etienne

Weaving proudly, singing loudly
Being young and foolish
He was going, never knowing
He would not return

Singing songs of war
Filled with God and country
Marching down the road
With the boys that day

Au revoir, my love
Though the reasons pass me
Why we can't remain
In the fields of St. Etienne
