Subject: RE: Lyr Req: WWII Song:'Come bury me out in Benghazi'
Sorry to come to this a little late, my late Father used to sing another variant of this. I believe he was taught it by his Father who was out in the area during WWII.

Now maybe you've heard of Benghazi,
And all of the deeds that were done,
'twas there that a poor English tommy,
Was shot by an old eyetie gun.

They buried him out in the desert,
Under the Libyan sun,
They buried that poor English tommy,
His fight for old England was done.
