Bamforth Song Cards There's A Ship That's Bound For Blighty
Sung By Ernie Pike As Herbert Payne




War-clouds breaking over the sea
Home once more is calling;
Someone's waiting there on the quay,
Tears of joy are falling
Why does ev'ry heart seem so glad?
Hearts that once were sad?

Chorus

There's a ship that's bound for blighty
There's a smile behind the tears,
There's a star of hope still shining,
Through the dark, dark dreary years
There's a day of joy for someone,
When the night of pain is through,
For the ship that's bound for Blighty
May bring a loved one home to you.

Good-bye sorrow! think of the day
When skies will be brighter,
When those clouds have all passed away
Hearts will then be lighter,
Tears may fall, but just for a while
Each tear hides a smile.

Chorus

There's a ship that's bound for blighty
There's a smile behind the tears,
There's a star of hope still shining,
Through the dark, dark dreary years
There's a day of joy for someone,
When the night of pain is through,
For the ship that's bound for Blighty
May bring a loved one home to you.
