  • Well Joel says
    heart are you always 19 Yes I was the only gallant knight of our mob Or at least that is the way that the press reported me Actually I was like most other 19 year old blokes too young to marry and flirting with most pretty girls I met Sadly Nelly Jones wasn t one of them She remained a spinster after her young man died working on the railroad Or are you a stranger without even a name Forever enshrined behind some glass pane In an old photograph torn and tattered and stained And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame Those to whom I am a stranger are those who never bothered to know me in life and feel guilty now that I am dead Does that include you Eric chorus The sun s shining down on these green fields of France The warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance The trenches have vanished long under the plough No gas and no barbed wire no guns firing now Eric are you blind or something In your walk which has left you nearly done did you not notice the small piles of unexploded shells and bombs that are harvested every year Lots of those are still filled with gas and many still explode every year That wouldn t sound as good though to contrast with the next verse But here in this graveyard that s still No Man s Land The countless white crosses in mute witness stand To man s blind indifference to his fellow man And a whole generation who were butchered and damned Countless Absolutely not Each and every one of these graves and each name on the memorials the huge ones and the minute ones are recorded and honoured Blind indifference tell that to the Ypres Fire Brigade at the Menin gate who barring the Second War and it s not to difficult to guess which Nation stopped them have played the Last Post every night of every year Oh well when you re writing propaganda you have to stick it in different don t you Eric And just for the figures butchering a whole generation would have meant more deaths than happened in every war in the whole of the twentieth century chorus And I can t help but wonder now Willie McBride Do all those who lie here know why they died Did you really believe them when they told you The Cause Did you really believe that this war would end wars Why they died Oh yes they knew that alright Just as they knew when they volunteered for every man jack of them did volunteer that they probably would die And in nineteen fourteen when they volunteered they didn t think they were fighting the war to end wars that was a myth added in by an American politician in 1918 You d recognise the politicians Eric like you they have problems with little things like the truth
