BAREFOOT KATE

At a summer's end
not so long ago
Two lovers walked
barefoot by the sea

Clouds of war would
soon take Joe away
so he asked his Kate
"Will you wait for me?"

Tide and time wait for no one
and may carry us apart, but
I will wait for you, my love
yes, I will wait for you

She kissed her Joe and
asked him not to go
He smiled and held her
happy that she'd wait

The winds and williwaws
blew for seven years
Waves of rage crashed
onto foreign lands

Sand swept through
the souls of humankind
and Joe saw things that
broke his heart and mind

Tide and time wait for no one
and have carried us apart, but
I will wait for you, my love
yes, I will wait for you

Each day Kate walked
the water's edge alone
and traced his name with her
bare feet on the strand

They sent Joe home
with a wounded soul
His country served
and his duty done

When he saw his Kate
he began to cry
he shook as she kissed
his grey and wearied head

Tide and time wait for no one
and may carry us apart, but
I will wait for you, my love
yes, I will wait for you
