Goodbye Dolly Grey

This song is by The Rubettes and appears on the album Still Unwinding (1978).

In the 1914-18 war
We were never sure
What we were fighting for
But we had our orders
For god and the king in the 1914-18
The cannons crashed
The soldiers fell
It was just like we'd
Been sent down to hell
And all was red
Where once was green in the 1914-18

So goodbye Dolly Gray
I'll see you another day
I go to war because I'm told
That war's the only way
Auf wiedersehen ich liebe dich
We'll stand and we will fight
And all god's children went to war
Convinced that they were right

And in the trench I saw the foe
And he looked just like my brother Joe
He was waving something in his hand
I thought it was a trick
So I send him to the promised land
And the photograph fell from his hand
Of his wife and kids from his German land
Oh didn't I feel sick

So goodbye Dolly Gray
I'll see you another day
I'm off to fight the foe
All dressed in glorious array
If only Tom and Fritz
Had known about the blitz
They'd have told them where
To stuff their war
And be alive today

So goodbye Dolly Gray
I'll see you another day
I go to war because I'm told
That war's the only way
Auf wiedersehen ich liebe dich
We'll stand and we will fight
And all god's children went to war
Convinced that they were right

So goodbye Dolly Gray
I'll see you another day
I go to war because I'm told
The war's the only way
Auf wiedersehen ich liebe dich
We'll stand and we will fight
And all god's children went to war
Convinced that they were right

So goodbye Dolly Gray...
