Come all people ot a noble lan-1, and Listen to my song, And, if you will but waft awhile, t will not hold you Ions: Tivas oa Faster Monday morning, boys, at the slroke of halt past live. When hell tore loose on Vimy Ridge, and the Canadians made their drive. for there we were, wearily thoughts wen far away. Where we on many an Easter Monday, and where we were today. But al once our guns lore loose; 'twas deateulns to hear. The roar ot our artillery on Yimy Ridge to clear. A shout, a rush, a cheer, ana over the top our salient hoys did go; O'er shell holes, mines and cralers. and through ihe blinding snow, Till we gol to Frlu's front line, and there we encountered Ihe foe. We gave Ihem a jab with tho bayonet, a hasly shot lhat was Irue; And then we had Huns lying around us, and hundreds o[ prisoners, too. Ah. sirs, U was It was eight ol the wounded there As they lay on the cold bloody ground, and wrestled with death and despair We could only ?lay foi a moment, we had not much time Lo spare, For our barrage was slowly creeping to his second line at our lore; So ou wo sped, while o'er our head (he shrapnel burst galore. And little we chought of Ibe danger, as through It .we did GO, And Into nls second line we did leap, and soon some Prlties were piled in a heap. Some throw down their riftes. and put up their hands, Crying "Mercy! Kamarad! Mercy i A few ot bur comrades had fallen ycu know, But that did not stop us, it wis forward lo go, On lo hfs last line, which was hid In the snow. But his sausages, whlzbangs, mlnnies and bombs Could nol stop us one moment with all ihelr death And when we got there, the line it was bare, for shelter sought "down below.' Hut when some ot the hoys made a terrible noise wilh bombs brought up from the rear. And into Ihe dugouts they threw quite a few, which gave them the hell t of a scare. Up from" below the Huns they did come, And into our bayonets and bombs they did run. Oh Lord', bul Ihe blood 11 did cover the ground, And some more or the Helneys were lying around. Tfap prisoners were still going" In by Uie score, lill our barbwire cages held twelve thousand or more. Ana Ihere we remained, jio farther to go. For MB had gained our "linal objective" you know. Ah, boys, 'Iwa3 a grand and glorious day For Canada's sona in a land far away; And. I'm" sure we'll get credit where credit Is Nol forgetting our artillery and flying machines loo, For the last two corps mentioned played a very big part, To maho our success lo the world to impart. Bops, that H was captureu and. lost again, And It cost the Hres of thousands ot men; So now that we have ft, we'll hold it, I am sure, For the ridge we have captured shall know him no more. Noiv, all my noble people, III finish up my soog About the drive on Vimy Hldge lhat you have jusl read on; So if. Any of you readers had sons or husbands, too, Who fell on Easier Monday for the. flag that's good and true, Remember what 1 died, like soldiers should, Figbling for their freedom and the land they lored so good. 'Twas oa Easier Monday morning, boys, al (he stroke of hall-past live. When bell lore loose on Vimy Ridge, and the Canadians marfc Uielr drive. Writ (en ani Composed by, PRIVATE G.
