Remembrance Day (Eric Waterman) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

I talked to an old friend with tears in his eyes,
He told a sad story how his comrades had died;
He was kneeling in silence as I walked away,
Now I know the true meaning of Remembrance Day.

As I walk down the street and look all around,
I can see all the good things we have in our town;
I can hear children singing and laughing so gay,
Thanks for the good life we're living today.

I'm wearing a poppy, I'll wear it with pride,
I'm wearing this poppy for the brave men who died;
They fought for the freedom that we know today,
I'll remember you, mister, on Remembrance Day.

Please, God, don't ever let time take away,
The memory of those who fell by the way;
Keep that flag flying, the red, white, and blue,
On Remembrance Day, sir, we'll be thinking of you.

I'm wearing a poppy, I'll wear it with pride,
I'm wearing this poppy for the brave men who died;
They fought for the freedom that we know today,
I'll remember you, mister, on Remembrance Day.

I'm wearing a poppy, I'll wear it with pride,
I'm wearing this poppy for the brave men who died;
They fought for the freedom that we know today,
I'll remember you, mister, on Remembrance Day.
