Love and War ©2017 Robert George BMI

Eileen felt the slow approaching winter storm
As she prayed to God and shoveled sod
Upon a torn grey uniform
Then she saw a stranger stagger from the foggy trees
He was cold n weak, with tear-stained cheeks
Mud and blood up to his knees
And though that strangerís uniform was blue
He took that widowís spade, filled the grave and then he prayed
That God might show him mercy, too

O love and war
Seem to be eternal on this earth
Yet love remains
When the dead have learned what war is worth

He was set to walk off in the snowy night
Eileen took his arm, pointed to her farmhouse and invited him inside
He slept on the bear rug by the fieldstone fireplace
Right at dawn, there was coffee on
And he cried at breakfast when she said grace
Evíry day she cleaned his wounds and wrapped them up in gauze
Evíry night by candlelight he pondered soldiers and their cause

Cos love and war
Seem to be eternal on this earth
Yet love remains
When the dead have learned what war is worth

Then one morning he was hunting in the woods alone
Union soldiers found her farm, ripped her dress and burned her barn
Thinkiní she was liviní on her own
Well, he saw the smoke and ran back with his gun
They had the same uniform, he himself had worn
And yet he still killed evíry one
By the time he wed Eileen he was neither blue nor grey
Cos he figured God above, was a God of love
And loveís the only way to pray

Yes, love and war
Seem to be eternal on this earth
Yet love remains
When the dead have learned what war is worth

O love and war
Seem to be eternal on this earth
Yet love remains
When the dead have learned what war is worth

I like the way the verses sound like someone talking and the choruses singing.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Vic, that's what I was after... rhythmic, conversational vss and a big, melodic chorus.

Thanks Geneva. smile
