Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Across the Hills of Home (Eric Bogle)
I'm looking for a song that Eric Bogle wrote. I cannot find the words anywhere. I thought it was called No Mans Land, but that is basically Willie McBride. The song started out something like this...

......on Christmas Day
on the Western front, the guns all died away
Lying in the mud on bags of sand
We heard the germans sing from No mans land....

The chorus go on like this....

Silent Night, no cannons roar...a King is born of peace forever more
Alls calm alls bright all brothers hand in hand...
A soldiers song of peace.....etc..

Do you know where I can find the words to this song? If you do, can you please email me as soon as you can. My name is Sean, and my email address is easn@aol.com
