Lyrics
:

Out come the flags and banners again
The memorial band plays on
Lloyd George my fathers friend
And light breaks on the streets
Where no sun shines
Where my fathers lived and died
But time moves on in this my town

The sound of the wind is blowing
Rushing over hill and vale
As the new day dawns
And a rose
A rose beyond the wall

And I, I walk away from you
And everyone who knew me well
Oh my valley
For pastures new
There's cruel in this innocent world I've known
Oh I don't want to go
Oh no from this my town

The sound of the wind is blowing
Rushing over hill and vale
As the new day dawns
And a rose
A rose beyond the wall

There comes a time in my life
When I have to take a chance
To find myself to find my way
Oh to find my way in life
In this my town you never let me down

The sound of the wind is blowing
Rushing over hill and vale
As the new day dawns
And a rose
A rose beyond the wall

Mike Peters Notes
:This song was originally going to be called “Memorial Day” until Eddie MacDonald came across a sympathy card his mother had purchased which contained a reference to a “rose beyond the wall”. “Rose” flowered at the end of the “Hurricane” sessions and unfortunately came too late to be considered for the album. It did however make the ‘B’ side of the “Rain In The Summertime” single.
