  1. Thank you, Bernie, for the words that mean so much to do many. Thank you, Elton, for once again inexplicably matching a haunting, powerul melody to thos great words! I will stand every time I hear this song, and pray for peace on this earth.On this, the 100th Anniversary of the end of the War to end all Wars: Thank you!

  2. So sad that the once great writer and vocalist has now departed. The x factor that was his and his alone gone. A tired rendition of a very predictable melody and a vocal with no charm. I so miss the 70's Elton.

  3. I don't have issues with Elton's personal life, it's all good, but this song is insulting to people 10-15 years older than he is. I'd like to polish off and dust off several friends, but they all died, we grieved, we recovered (most of us, at least). And of all of Elton's songs, this is the most tortured melody, the lyrics don't fit, and it just smells like it's money in the bank, there's no integrity here. It doesn't fit the circumstance.

  4. elton should work with patrick leonard again…sound wise leonard's work on songs from the west coast far surpasses the sounds t bone burnett gets….burnett is the wrong producer for elton…

  6. The perfect ballad for this very special 70th anniversary of the D-Day Normandy Invasions….Let us all remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to turn the tide for freedom on those beaches 70 years ago and the few that are still around to thank.  Let us remember the greatest generation who struggled through the Great Depression in their childhood, delivered us from tyranny in World War II, and the veterans who came back to build this country into what it is.  Now into their 90s, perhaps they are gathering the last time at today's ceremonies, but their lessons can live on in our hearts.

  7. Lyrics >>>
    I hung out with the old folks, in the hope that I'd get wise.
    I was trying to bridge the gap, between the great divide.
    Hung on every recollection, in the theater of their eyes
    Picking up on this and that, in the few that still survive.

    Call em up
    Dust em off
    Let em shine
    The ones who hold onto the ones, they had to leave behind
    Those that flew, those that fell,
    The ones that had to stay,
    Beneath a little wooden cross
    Oceans away

    They bend like trees in winter, these shuffling old gray lions
    Though snow white start to gather, like the belt around Orion.
    Just a touch of faded lightning, of the powerful design,
    Of the generation gathered, for maybe the last time.

    Call em up
    Dust em off
    Let em shine
    The ones who hold onto the the ones, they had to leave behind
    Those that flew, those that fell,
    The ones that had to stay,
    Beneath a little wooden cross
    Oceans away

    Oceans away where the green grass sways and the cool wind blows across the shadow of their graves.
    shoulder to shoulder, back in the day, sleeping bones to rest in Earth
    Oceans away
    Oceans away

    Call em up
    Dust em off
    Let em shine
    The ones who hold onto the ones, they had to leave behind
    Those that flew, those that fell,
    The ones that had to stay,
    Beneath a little wooden cross
    Oceans away。。。
