Thread Name: Lyr Req: Normandy Orchards (Keith Marsden)
Subject: Lyric request-Training to die
I heard this song once only. It appears to be about soldiers in training before being sent to Normandy in the second World War. Part of the chorus goes something like "They say you can still hear the village hall dance band" -------- "The orchards of Normandy were waiting" --- "The mad dance of war". That is is all I can remember and probably with errors. It was a very moving song . Can any one help?
