Just a Note (the Exile Song)

Ewan MacColl
Language: English

Just a note for time is short dear.
Hard the work and long the day,
But my heart is with you, Mary,
Though I'm many a mile away.

Kiss the children for me Mary,
Do not let them pine or grieve.
Tell them how I'm working for them,
Why our home I had to leave.

Building dams, airfields and factories,
Moving concrete by the load —
But I'll be with you in November
When I'm finished on the road.
