Oh I was born your only son
And I will think of you before this day is done
The fires of hell surround me now
So I must fight for freedom
Against their raging guns

In all my life I never said how much I love you
In all this time I never really said I cared

This war is wrong and so I write these words
Before I give my life to the Somme

In all my life I never said how much I love you
In all this time I never really knew you

The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The guns of hell will take my breath away
From my life this day
The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The words I say must never disappear
Keep them locked inside your heart

I can hear the piper's song
And it will play for me before this day is done
So I will hold my head up high
If I must give my life to stop their raging guns

In all my life I never said how much I love you
In all this time I never really knew you

The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The guns of hell will take my breath away
From my life this day
The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The words I say must never disappear
Keep them locked inside your heart

The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The guns of hell will take my breath away
From my life this day
The fires of hell surround me, oh oh
The words I say must never disappear
Keep them locked inside your heart

Oh I was born your only son
And I thank God for that and that that
Will be done
