GUEST,Sean Musical Question - Christmas, 1914 (14) RE: Musical Question 24 Dec 03

I'm sorry to bother you, but I have been searching everywhere for a song by Eric Bogle. I had the tape of the song, but I cannot find it anywhere. I do a lot of singing, and there is a song that I would like the words for if you know of anywhere I can find them.

The chorus goes something like this:
Oh silent night, no cannons roar
A king is born of peace forever more
alls calm alls bright, all brothers hand in hand
a soldiers song of peace from no man's land

The song is basically about a truce on Christmas day and the German soldier who was singing is actually killed the day after Christmas after a truce. Any help would be appreciated. I thought the song was called No mans Land, but it seems that is Willie McBride.

Enjoy your holiday. Any help is appreciated:)

Please email me at if you know where I can find this song. Thank you,
