  • Christmas 1915
    Celtic Thunder
    1915 on Christmas Day
    On the western front the guns all died away
    And lying in the mud on bags of sand
    We heard a German sing from no man's land
    He had tenor voice so pure and true
    The words were strange but every note we knew
    Soaring or the the living dead and dammed
    The German sang of peace from no man's land

    They left their trenches and we left ours
    Beneath tin hats smiles bloomed like wild flowers
    With photos, cigarettes, and pots of wine
    We bult a soldier's truce on the front line
    Their singer was a lad of 21
    We begged another song before the dawn
    And sitting in the mud and blood and fear
    He sang again the song all longed to hear

    Silent night, no cannons roar
    A king is born of peace for evermore
    All's calm, all's bright
    All brothers hand in hand
    In 19 and 15 in no man's land

    And in the morning all the guns boomed in the rain
    And we killed them and they killed us again
    At night they charged we fought them hand to hand
    And I killed the boy that sang in no man's land

    Silent night no cannons roar
    A king is born of peace for evermore
    All's calm, all's bright
    All brothers hand in hand
    And that young soldier sings
    And the song of peace still rings
    Though the captains and all the kings
    Built no man's land
