Is it this one? By Richard Laird, Sam Starrett, Tracey McRory

/ C - F - / C Am F / F - - C / Dm - C G7 /
Just today, another day
Beneath the Belgian sun
Past grave on grave, row upon row
Until I see the name John Condon

/ C - F - / C Am F / F - - C / Dm - C G7 /
Carved in stone, with harp and crown
Little crosses in the ground
And standing there, my silent prayer
Is for a boy who died a soldier

Chorus
/ C - F -/ C - G - / F - C - / Am G C /
Wee lad, who'll not grow old
Heros that don't come home
Here they lie in Belgian fields
And Picarde

/ C - F - / C Am F / F - - C / Dm - C G7 /
Just a recruit in soldier's boots
From Ireland's shores to here
This living hell, this Poelcapelle
Where young men fell like you John Condon

/ C - F - / C Am F / F - - C / Dm - C G7 /
And all around, harp and crown
The crosses in the ground
Stand up in proof, the bitter truth
The waste of youth that lies forgotten

Chorus

/ C - F - / C Am F / F - - C / Dm - C G7 /
Now tell me John, before I go on
What did you come here for
With Ireland bored, your life untold
Fourteen years old to die a soldier

/ C - F - / C Am F / F Am / F Am /
And all around, harp and crown
The crosses in the ground
What cause was served ...
So undeserved ...

/ Am - F -/ Am - F - / F - C / Am G C /
Heros who don't come home
Sing out for all their souls
Here they lie in Belgian fields
And Picarde

Its a great song. I am no singer, but do sing it from time to time in singarounds, sometime I get a brilliant reaction from the audience and other times nothing. I can't work out what I do differently that changes the reaction. I'll keep plugging away see if I can make it work more often.

Just a correction of a typo in verse 3 above:

Now tell me John, before I go on What did you come here for? ***With Ireland's bold*** , your life untold Fourteen years old to die a soldier?
