    "Common Ground" Lyrics


    Here we are
    Alive and free
    Far away in time from our darkest day
    That took our young and brave

    From the cradle to the grave
    70 years ago on July one 1916 on the Somme
    The enemies had never seen fighting like this before
    Such a simple plan--

    How could any German man
    Survive through that ordeal?

    Company 'A' to Company 'be '
    "Morale is high here, sir, but I don't think it's safe to go"

    Company 'A' from Company 'be '
    "Mister you have your orders and you must obey"
    So the first line rose, and the first line fell
    And a poet who survived later wrote about

    A "Sunlit vision of Hell"
    And "Larks singing"
    Because after all it's just another summer's day in France
    And the Tommie's on the Somme sang

    "We are fighting to turn no-man's land into a common ground"
    A common ground
