I hope this transcription of the changes is enjoyed by all old and young - I was 
shocked when I couldn't find this 1914 classic on the site so thought I've 
submitted it for you all. Thanks!

          A        E7       A
They were summoned from the hillside
                    Dm       A
They were called in from the glen
E7                         A
And the country found them ready,
E               B7          E A E A E
At the stirring call for men
A                E7       A
Let no tears add to their hardship
                Dm   A     B7
As the soldiers pass along
      C#m                  F#m
And although your heart is breaking
        E    G#m  F#m   B7 E   F#m/E  E6  E7
Make it sing this cheer--y sooooong


A                    A/E  E7
Keep the homes fires burn-ing
F#m                  C#7aug C#7
While your hears are yearn---ing
D                    A
Though your lads are far a-way
     B7       E7
They dream of home
A                A/E E7
There's a silver lin-ing
F#m                    C#7aug C#7
Through the dark cloud shin---ing
D             A
Turn the dark in-side out
Dm6       A/E  E7   A
'Till the boys come home

Verse 2 lyrics:

Over seas there came a pleading,
"Help a Nation in distress!"
And we gave our glorious laddies,
Honor made us do no less.
For no gallant Son of Freedom
To a tyrant's yoke should bend,
And a noble heart must answer
To the sacred call of "Friend!"

Thought this song would be a fitting tribute to GB after such a fantastic Olympics! Roll on Rio!
