My Choice - Vera Lynn: The White Cliffs of Dover

"(There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover" is a popular World War II song made famous by Vera Lynn with her 1942 recording - one of her best known recordings. Written in 1941 by Walter Kent and Nat Burton, the song was also among the most popular second World War tunes. It was written before America had joined the war, to uplift the spirits of the Allies at a time when Nazi Germany had conquered much of Europe's area and was bombing Britain.

The song was written at a time when British and German aircraft had been fighting over the cliffs of Dover in the Battle of Britain the song's lyrics looked toward a time when the war would be over and peace would rule over the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, Britain's de facto border with the European mainland.

Vera Lynn was born in 1917. She is an English singer and actress whose musical recordings and performances were enormously popular during World War II.

During the war she toured Egypt, India and Burma giving outdoor concerts for the troops. She was called "The Forces' Sweetheart"; the songs most associated with her are We'll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover. She remained popular after the war, appearing on radio and television in the UK and the United States.

The White Cliffs of Dover are cliffs which form part of the British coastline facing the Strait of Dover and France. The cliffs are part of the North Downs formation. The cliff face, which reaches up to 107 metres (351 ft), owes its striking façade to its composition of chalk (pure white calcium carbonate) accentuated by streaks of black flint. The cliffs spread east and west from the town of Dover in the county of Kent, an ancient and still important English port.

Shakespeare Cliff marks the point where Great Britain most closely approaches continental Europe. On a clear day, the cliffs are easily visible from the French coast.

"White Cliffs Of Dover" (Lyrics)

Therell be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover
Just you wait and see

I'll never forget the people I met
Braving those angry skies
I remember well as the shadows fell
The light of hope in their eyes

And though I'm far away
I still can hear them say
Bombs up...
But when the dawn comes up

Therell be bluebirds over, etc

Therell be love and laughter
And peace ever after
When the world is free

The shepherd will tend his sheep
The valley will bloom again
And Jimmy will go to sleep
In his own little room again

Therell be bluebirds over, etc

Therell be bluebirds over, etc
