Guitar solo fade to end...



Lyrics:

Woke this morning the war was over
The radio was singing love songs
I saw the smiles upon the soldiers
Coming home across the fields...

The calender said 1st of August
Romance and promises of summer days
I strolled unclothed into your garden
To feel the warm sun on my face...

The saving of the human race...

Jets at dawn, trails across the sky
Silver birds writing words for airmens wives
Who down below, hang the washing out to dry
Frilly briefs and flying helmets in a line...

Jets at dawn, writing in the sky
Silver planes ( vapour trails... )
Drawing Coca Cola signs
To advertise above the cities and the towns
Flying high across the sea beyond the clouds...

Said goodbye to the others
The old musicians of the past
Said hello to the young things
Oh, your songs are here to sing at last

Drank the wine of the new vine
Growing wild inside my heart
I saw the future age had risen
It's time to make a brand new start

Time to see beyond the dark...

Jets at dawn, trails across the sky
Silver birds writing words for airmens wives
Who down below, hang the washing out to dry
Frilly briefs and flying helmets in a line...

Jets at dawn, writing in the sky
Silver planes ( vapour trails... )
Drawing Coca Cola signs
To advertise above the cities and the towns
Flying high across the sea beyond the clouds...


Words and music by Bill Nelson.
