SONGS OF THE SOIDIERS AND SAILORS. 21 15. KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING.
(G.)
They were summoned from the hillside,
They were called in from the glen, And the Country found them ready
At the s                           men.
Let no tears* add to their hardship,
As the so           pass along
And although your heart is breaking. Make it sing this cheery so Keen the Home fires burning. While your hearts are yearning. Though your lads are far away They dream of Home; There's a silver lining Through the dark cloud shining Turn the dark cloud inside out, Till the boys come Home.

.16. PACK UP YOUR TROUBLES IN YOUR OLD KIT-BAG.
ML)
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile; While you've a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys—that's the style. What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile!
(Copyright, 1915, in all countries by Francis, Day & Hunter, and published by special arrangement with T. B. Harms, Francis. Day & Hunter, r.nd Chappcll &Co. Ltd., 41 Last Thirty-fourth Street, New York City.)
