The Hood

Sung to the tune of Vincent by Don Mclean
Listen to the song first to get the melody


On a morning clear and bright
A warship, painted blue and gray
Sailed out on a fine Spring day
Though its sailors felt a darkness in their souls
Resolute of will
Wives and children standing still
Though the day was warm
Still felt a chill
As if they knew their loved ones might be doomed

And the children did not understand
Why their fathers had to go away
Why they could not come back home and stay
They remembered when they'd laugh and play
But their fathers had to leave, the country stood alone
And soon they all were gone 

It was in the month of May
That a warship's guns did brightly blaze
In swirling clouds of smoke and haze
Death flying out across the ocean blue
And all the British sailors knew
That those shells would bring them naught but pain
That their efforts might be fought in vain
But they had to try to save their country and their kin

Now from many years away
The children look back and do know
That their fathers died to save their island home
And we too understand
What was sacrificed that day
Why some must always leave and join the fray
Though their loved ones cry and beg them not to go
