Lay Down Your Arms - Anne Shelton

Come to the station, jump from the train
March at the double, down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses entwine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

My sweetheart is a soldier, as handsome as can be
But suddenly they sent him, away across the sea
So patiently I waited, until his leave was due
Then wrote and said My darling, I'll tell you what to do

Come to the station, jump from the train
March at the double, down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses entwine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

A soldier is a soldier, and when he's on parade
An order is an order, and has to be obeyed
You've got to do your duty, wherever you may be
and now you're under orders, to hurry home to me

Come to the station, jump from the train
March at the double, down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses entwine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine

The girl who loves a soldier, is either sad or gay
'Cos first of all he's with her, and then he's far away
But soldiers have their duty, to answer to the call
and that is why I'm calling, the loudest of them all

Come to the station, jump from the train
March at the double, down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses entwine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine
