Thread Name: Chord Req: Danny Deever (Kipling/Bellamy)
Subject: RE: Meanings, Kipling army song
Belatedly ~~ Peter Bellamy set 'Danny Deever' to Derwentwater's Farewell. He also wrote an effective tune for Kipling's moving lament for his dead son,'My Son John', despite its rambling and irregular metre. Both originally on the Barrack Room Ballads vinyl LP.
