Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs Mentioning 'Afghanistan'/'Afghan'
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songst Mentioning 'Afghanistan'/'Afghan'
Fred Smith is an Australian singer & songwriter who served as a diplomat in Afghanistan. His album, Dust of Uruzgan, is based on his experiences there.
If you specifically want a mention of Afghanistan, there's one in the 2nd stanza of the title track:
I had just turned 28, just bought a new car
When I joined the first Battalion of the Big 1 RAR
We were next up for deployment into south Afghanistan
To combat the insurgence in the Dust of Uruzgan
