VP_016268 Verse 1From across the sea Sad voices are calling, Calling you and me To lighten their pain; Oh, Sister France, we know you're worn and weary, We hear your plea and answer thee, 'Tis not in vain! Chorus 1France, we have heard you calling, France, while the shells are falling, We know what we owe to you; Tho' your head is bowed in sorrow In the vision of tomorrow, Oh, can't you see victory is shining through? America is coming! France, let our guns defend you, France, take the sons we send you, Your cause is our cause, that's true And now that you're in need of a helping hand, Way out there in No Man's Land, France, we have not forgotten you. Verse 2Mem'ries linger yet Of days when you help'd us, And your Lafayette Who came to our aid; Beloved France, we did not find you wanting, We can't forget, we owe a debt that must be paid.
