Please can someone give the words of Never again, remember by Eric Bogle. I can't find it in DT or any other database. I would also be grateful for the music score, if someone could set it up for me to download. I don't have MIDI

NEVER AGAIN - REMEMBER is on "Mirrors".

I have been to hell today.
I saw the Devil's naked face.
I felt the poison freeze my heart
In that evil, evil place.
I heard the ghosts cry out in warning,
Their voices ringing through the years.
I stood beneath the barbed wire fence,
And wept, and wept, bitter tears.
Never, never again!

I stood alone that winter's day,
On that barren killing ground.
Inside my head the voices grew
Till my brain was bursting with the sound.
They cried, "Comrade, do not forget us!"
And I replied, "I never will!"
And as my soul in anguish wept,
One by one, the voices stilled.
Never, never again!

Europe, sixty years ago - remember?
Depression, millions on the dole - remember?
In those dark despairing times
Of unemployment and bread-lines
A cancer grew, fat and malign - remember?

Its banner was a crooked cross - remember?
Its destiny a holocaust - remember?
Its creed was racial purity.
It fed on fear and bigotry.
Its touch was death and slavery - remember?

Chorus:

It's happening again. It's happening again.
Can't you see it's happening again?

Repeat:

Treblinka, Auschwitz and Dachau - remember?
David's Star, a people's shroud - remember?
No refuge and no hiding place
For non-members of the Master Race,
Whole nations enslaved and debased - remember?

Blood and toil and sweat and tears - remember?
The nightmare lasted six long years - remember?
The world drowned in a bloody tide
Of war and death and genocide.
Fifty-seven million died - remember?

Coda:

I've lived in freedom all my life,
Never thinking much about the cost,
Of those who suffered and who died
So that freedom's flame would not be lost.
I saw the flame in Sachsenhausen.
In spite of all, it's burning yet.
To all the ghosts who guard the flame,
I promise you, I won't forget.
Never, never again!
Never, never again!

Bogle says in the sleeve notes, "I wrote 'Never Again' after a trip to the WWII concentration camp called Sachsenhausen, situated just outside Berlin (or East Berlin as it was then). Chilling little place. It seems the political & social obscenity that created Sachsenhausen, and many other death camps, is on the rise again. Could it all happen again? Of course it could. It already is."

Regards
Chris

Thanks very much, Chris. I wonder if anyone out there can enable me to access the music? I would like to sing this at a Holocaust Memorial Day event. I don't really want to buy an Eric Bogle Album just for the one song

Have you contacted Eric, through his website, he's a highly emeniable man and would probably be happy to provide all the details you require, especially as its for a Holocaust Memorial Day.

If you are desperate I could make an MP3 of the track and email it to you, but I am not sure of the legality of this. It would also be a very large file (e.g., 4Mb), and would take ages to download. Let me know if you run out of alternatives.

Dear all! Thanks for the help. I would buy the CD if I had time. I need the music before Friday 26th January so I can learn the song to perform at a Holocaust Memorial Day event in my college. Last year John in Brisbane enabled me to download a music score for another song. It was very quick. Could anyone help in this way?

This is not a "boom-chuck" song - it has constantly changing rythmn and subtle emphasis and tune changes. I had not played the CD for years, and I had to play it a few times to start getting the feel of the song into my head. I recommend you listen to the original about 50 times before trying to learn it; I think it is worth it - a very powerful song indeed. It may be very difficult to learn from sheet music. Anyway, good luck!

Regards
Chris
