Demo Lyrics & Pdf

Unfortunately there isn't much info about this particular song. One of the best versions is from Daniel O'Donnell from Ireland as portrayed here in my acoustic demo. All references I've been able to find speaks about the troops getting out of their trenches, shaking hands, sharing some liquor and smokes and a song. And then resuming the battle to kill one another.

Christmas Day 1915 Lyrics

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 a tenor voice so pure and true
The words were strange but every note we knew
Soaring or the living dead and dammed
The German sang of peace from No Man's Land

They left their trenches and then we left ours
Beneath tin hats they smiled just like wild flowers
With photos, cigarettes, and tots of wine
We built 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 of peace is born forever more
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 guns boomed in the rain
And we killed them and they killed us again
The bayonet, bomb and bullet, gas and flame
And neither we nor them at all to blame

There was heavy fighting right throughout the day
For one night's peace we bloody well did pay
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 of peace is born forever more
All's calm, all's bright - All brothers hand in hand
And that young soldier sings - And the song of peace still rings
Tho the captains nor the Kings - Built No Man's Land
Sleep in heavenly peace
