Lyrics & Music by Rob Lincoln

A Sea Chanty style song about the perils of fighting a war on someone else's home turf. takes place in 1777, but it's still relevant..
This song is an historical song from an unusual perspective. The narrator is the wife of a British soldier sent oversees to a war that is just and will protect the foreign land from local insurgents. Write back if you know the name of the military leader who is leading this famous insurgency..
Now is a time when all good men must come- to the aid of their country
It isn't our place to doubt the merits of our flag and loyalty..

Over the waves
My love's gone over the sea..
Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country.

Oh my love he writes me most every day from his fine infantry
He hasn't see too much action yet, but he knows the enemy..

Over the waves
My love's gone over the sea..
Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country.

Now my love he writes me the rebels are the minority
And he can plainly see..
They're simply backed by some foreign powers and infiltrated by the French and their money..

Over the waves
My love's gone over the sea..
Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country.

Now my love he writes me the people are with us
And the good homes they serve him tea
And pretty soon he'll be back in -merry old England
Right after victory

Over the waves
My love's gone over the sea..
Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country.

Over the waves
My love's gone over the sea..
Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country.

Over the ocean to the Americas
To fight for our country!
