Took a boat over Lake Geneva
It was raining all night long
We were lucky and we saw no enemy
And came from Switzerland, poor refugees
Far from the guns of war
We said goodbye to it all

They brought us into a nurse's station
Half a mile behind the lines
Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking
To see the children, and the walking wounded
Hoping for a ticket home
And say goodbye to it all

I woke up on a cold blue morning
