Green Fields of England

Green Fields of England was written in support of England at the World Cup in 2010. In the lyrics we hoped to capture and celebrate, the pride that an Englishman has for England, its character, and its football team.

This song is for England, not the UK or GB. My late Grandfather did serve in both world wars, and that line is for him.

You can go to and hear the song for free.

Play it loud!

Verse 1
Never underestimate the love of an Englishman,
Love of an Englishman for England
Deep within his heart he feels such pride for his country
The precious country, that he loves

Pre-chorus
From the Angel of the North to the Cornish coast
From Charlton, Hurst and Moore to a Sunday roast

Chorus
`Till I die I`ll love the green fields of England
Green fields of England that is home
Deep in my soul you find the things that I stand for
Grandfather fought for in the wars

Verse 2
And when they're under fire, we`ll lift them higher
So get behind the Boys,
Come on and make some noise, for Eng---LAND
From the Beatles and the Stones to the Fawlty Towers
We gave the world football and this time its ours

Chorus
'Till I die I'll love the green fields of England
Green fields of England that is home
Deep in my soul you find the things that I stand for
Grandfather fought for in the wars

Pre-chorus
From a sense of fair play to a pint of beer
The best league in the world you're gonna find it here
From the fish and chips to strawberries and cream
We gonna get behind Capello`s Eng-lish team

Chorus
`Till I die I`ll love the green fields of England
Green fields of England that is home
Deep in my soul you find the things that I stand for
Grandfather fought for in the wars
