[Verse 1]
    C            F           G         C
The sands of the desert were cruel and stark
                   F            G              C
They burned in the day and they chilled in the dark
                  Em             G          Am
On that vast battleground on the eve of the fight
    Fm                G
The candle that burns inspired them that night.
 
[Verse 2]
    C            F         G            C
The brine of the ocean was freezing and cold
                F           G          C
The boys became men and the men became bold
                       Em          G            Am
But they died just the same in the damp and the wet
    Fm                         G
The candle that burns will not let us forget.
 
[Chorus]
    F           C            F           C
The candle that burns in the chapel will be
        D                       G
Left to burn in the chapel of a world that is free.
       C          Am       Dm          G
Do not cry little one, for no-one will take
    Fm                        C              G
The candle that burns on your first birthday cake.
 
[Verse 3]
    C           F           G              C
The sky was not meant to be shattered that way
                   F          G          C
With shells that exploded the night into day
                    Em           G          Am
And each time they returned on a wing and a prayer
    Fm                    G
The candle that burns was welcoming there.
 
[Verse 4]
    C         F            G         C
The beaches remain and the red poppy blooms
                    F           G           C
The sands they have shifted and covered the tombs
                   Em            G         Am
Of the boys resting there in the earth and sea
    F   Fm                  G
The candle that burns is to their memory.
 
[Chorus]
    F           C            F           C
The candle that burns in the chapel will be
        D                       G
Left to burn in the chapel of a world that is free.
       C          Am       Dm          G
Do not cry little one, for no-one will take
    Fm                        C              G
The candle that burns on your first birthday cake.
