Thread Name: Songs about the Great War (WWI)
Subject: RE: Songs about the Great War
Try "The Old Barbed Wire" I have a version sung by Robert Graves the War poet & "I Claudius" on my website cresby.com - look in "songs". The popular version is very easy to learn - ideal for kiddies and it is a genuine Folk song.
I have since written a version that takes the story on by two or three generations - same tune/format. The Old Barbed Why Here?
PM me if you want the words.
