lyrics The Green Fields of France

Well how do you do young Willy Mc Bride?
Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside?
And rest for a while in the warm summer sun
I've been walking all day and I'm nearly done
I see by your gravestone you were only nineteen
When you joined the great falling in nineteen sixteen
I hope you died well and I hope you died clean
Or young Willy Mc Bride was it slow and obscene?
Did they beat the drum slowly? did they play the fifes lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
And did the band play the last post on chorus
And did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
Did you leave here a wife or a sweetheart behind?
In some faithfull heart is your memory enshrined?
And though you died back in nineteen sixteen
In that faith full heart are you forever nineteen?
Or are you a stranger without even a name
Enclosed and forever behind a glass frame?
In an old photograph torn battered and stained
And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame
Did they beat the drum slowly? did they play the fifes lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post on chorus
And did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
The sun now shines on the green fields of France
There's a warm summer breeze that makes the red poppies dance
And look how the sun shines from under the clouds
There's no gas no barbed wire there's no gun firing now
But here in this graveyard it's still no mans land
The countless white crosses stand mute in the sand
To man's blind indefference to his fellow man
To a whole generation that were butchered and dammed
Did they beat the drum slowly? did they play the fifes lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
And did the band play the last post on chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
Now young Willy Mc Bride
I can't help wonder why
Do those that lie here know why did they die?
And did they believe when they answered the call
Did they really believe that this war would end wars?
Oh the sorrow the suffering the glory the pain
The killing and dying were all done in vain
For young Willy Mc Bride it all happened again
And again and again and again and again
Did they beat the drum slowly? did they play the fifes lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post on chorus
Did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
Did they beat the drum slowly? did they play the fifes lowly
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post on chorus
And did the pipes play the flowers of the forest
