Mark has transformed the song into a wonderful choral composition which would be well suited to Remembrance Day events or any concert concerning War and Peace.


After the guns are silent
After your wounds have healed
After those crosses been planted in all those fields
After that long boat ride all the way across the sea
And after this train carries thee

I will love you after the war
Love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always and more

After your boots dry and the tobacco is all but gone
Along with all those post cards you’ve carried under your arm
After I remember all the words I could not say
And after this long night fades away

After this blackbird lifts from up off your chest
And after your soul takes its final rest
My love I forgive you, you never planned to die
And love I’ll place two pennies over your eyes
