For you are beauti-ful and I have loved you dearly 2m 57 1 * More dearly than the spoken word can tell I heard there's a wicked war a-blazing And the taste of war I know so very well Even now I see that foreign flag a-raising Their guns on fire as we sailed into hell I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow But how bitter will be this last farewell Though death and darkness gather all about me And my ship be torn apart upon the sea I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands In the heaving waves that brought me once to thee And should I return safe home again to England I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale NOTES: - L2: 6m on "England" - L4: 2m7 on "land", 4 on "rainy" - L6: 6m on "tears" - C2: 2m7 on "dearly"
