Thread Name: Lyr Req: Shores of Old Blighty (Graeme Miles)
Subject: The shores of old blighty we're leaving
Can anyone help to provide the words to this song? I don't know the title but I believe the chorus goes something along the lines:

The shores of old blighty we're leaving behind The bright lights of Harwich are fading away When we get to Germany how will we find Life on a few bob a day sergeant?

Its about conscripts on their way to do their service in Germany I think.

Thanks in anticipation.
