22 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
17. WHEN THE GREAT RED DAWN IS SHINING.
(B flat.)
Tho' I am far across the ocean blue,
Each lonely hour my heart remembers you;
Each tender look, each word I used to know*
Comes back to, back to me, From out the long ago.
When the great red dawn is shining,
When the waiting hours are past, When the tears of night are ended
And I see the day at last, I shall come down the road of sunshine,
To a heart that is fond and true, When the great red dawn is shining,
Back to home, back to love, and you.
(Copyright, 1917, by J. B. Cramer & Co., Ltd., and published by special arranrt-mon! with Chappell & Co., Ltd., New York City.)
18. OVER THERE.
(B flat.)
Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there,
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming, The drums rum tumming everywhere. So prepare, say a prayer, Send the word, send the word to beware,
We'll be over, we're coming over, And we won't come back till .it's over, over there.
