It was j[C]ust before dawn one m[Gsus4]iserable morning in [C]black forty-four
[C]When the foreward commander was told to sit tight,
When they asked that his [F/C]men be with[C]drawn
[C]And the generals gave thanks, as the other ranks
[Gsus4]Held back the enemy t[C]anks for a while
And the [C]Anzio Bridgehead was [Gsus4]held for the price
Of a [C]few hundred ordinary lives

[C]And kind old King [G]George sent Mother a [C]note when he heard that [G]Father was gone
[C]It was, I re[G]call, in the form of a [C]scroll with gold leaf and all
[C]And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away
[C]And my eyes still grow damp to re[Gsus4]member      
His Majesty [C]signed with his own rubber stamp
[C]It was dark all a[G]round, there was frost on the [C]ground

When the Tigers broke [G]free
[C]And no-one survived from the Royal Fusiliers, Company "C"
[G]They were all left be[C]hind, most of them [G]dead - the rest of them [C]dying
[C]And that's how the [G]high command took my [C]daddy from me

It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black forty-four
When the foreward commander was told to sit tight,
When they asked that his men be withdrawn
And the generals gave thanks, as the other ranks
Held back the enemy tanks for a while
And the Anzio Bridgehead was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives

And kind old King George sent Mother a note when he heard that Father was gone
It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll with gold leaf and all
And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away
And my eyes still grow damp to remember
His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp
It was dark all around, there was frost on the ground

When the Tigers broke free
And no-one survived from the Royal Fusiliers, Company "C"
They were all left behind, most of them dead - the rest of them dying
And that's how the high command took my daddy from me
