Tom Wintringham

Can anyone complete the parts of the lyrics which I cannot catch in this song as performed by Paul Frith and the Considerate Lovers The recording can be heard HEREhttp://www.myspace.com/paulfrith/music/songs/tom-wintringham-23202184

He was the first in line,
At the start of the war in Spain,
He left all his life behind,
When old Franco's fascists reigned.

CHORUS

He struck up the band,
Marched on the land,
Tom Wintringham,
D--- his debt began.???

He was the last to bleed, believe ???
When they took his strength from him,
He could not quite believe,
All the things they took from him.

CHORUS

Would I do the same?
Would I go to war in Spain?
Put aside all my grief ,
For something that I believe.

CHORUS

CHORUS

These lyrics are being collected for the Mudcat perma-thread called Songs in English About the Spanish Civil War which can be reached with this link Songs in English About the Spanish Civil War

The following sites give information about Tom Wintringham who was commander of the British Battalion of the XVth International Brigade at the Battle of Jarama during the Spanish Civil War.(the 75th anniversary of the beginning of the battle is in three weeks time).

Ta Joe

If anyone is signed up to MySpace perhaps you would please post something on the Paul Frith MySpace to which I give the link above ( first link, first post) and tell him about this thread and ask him to give us a definitive set of lyrics and possibly the background to the writing of the song ?
