Lyrics

Headlines in the village shop
I could hardly speak
I was there when Jamie sailed
Sent a letter just last week
Never been the worrying kind
Jamie was so afraid
I wrote that better times
Were surely on their way
Today we got the news
Jamie's coming home

His wife was by the schoolyard gate
Children pouring home
Bodies flowed around her legs
Like water round a stone
She called me over
Asked me had I heard
She had to tell their boy
She couldn't find the words
Today we got the news
Jamie's coming home

His photo on the TV news
Uniformed and proud
Coffin carried shoulder high
Union flag his shroud
And on the wild hillside
Where we played children's games
Sat a while beneath the tree
Where Jamie carved his name
Today we got the news
Jamie's coming home
