Hi to everyone on the list - first time on...I'm a Glasgow based player looking for lyrics to a song called 'All the fine young men' recorded by De Danann. It's about the Government cheating 'all the fine young men' into going to war and starts

They told all the fine young med that when the war is over there shall be peace and the peace will last forever

Does anyone have the rest of it? many thanks in advance

Here you are:

They told all the fine young men of when this war is over
There will be peace and the peace will last forever
In Flanders Field, at Lone Pine and Bersheeba
For king and country, for honour and duty
The young men fought and cursed and wept and died

They told all the fine young men of when this war is over
In your country's grateful heart we will cherish you forever
At Tobruk and Alamein, at Bhuna and Kokoda
Like their fathers before, in a world mad with war
The young men fought and cursed and wept and died

For many of those fine young men all the wars are over
They have found peace, it's the peace that lasts forever
When the call comes again they will not answer
They're just forgotten bones lying far from their homes
As forgotten as the cause for which they died

Ah young men, can you see now why they lied

Dolores Keane also does a great version. Give my love to Glasgow! - Susanne

ALL THE FINE YOUNG MEN

Thanks again
