Thread Name: Lyr Req: Feed the Children (Eric Bogle)
Subject: RE: desperate for lyrics to Eric Bogle's
the song is on Eric Bogle's CD "Voices In The Wilderness" ALCAZAR 115 (ALC115) I have it in my hand as I type, but it doesn't have any words with it, just the song titles and credits. This appears to be a version for the American market - the fine print says it's under license from Larrikin Records, Australia, 1990. this disk is dated 1992. Eric states in the liner notes that it was inspired by "the magic of television" as he watched two little Ethiopian kids die in front of his eyes on the boob-tube. Its a powerful song (as are many of his); good luck - maybe later I can find the time to write down the words from the listening - but then I'll probably want to get out my guitar and learn to sing it myself. I would guess that it's also probably in some sort of song book - as is, I believe, some of his other stuff, such as "Green Fields of France." cheers
