Thread Name: HELP! Need a song about peace!!!
Subject: RE: HELP! Need a song about peace!!!
The tune, format and inspiration are the "Old Barbed Wire" (or "If You Want to Find the Colonel") and I would have called it "The Old Barbed Why Here?" but you don't need to know the original song if it is called :-

The War Memorial - lest we forget.

V1 (emphasis But-Cher) If you want to find the "Butcher", I know where he is, I know where he is, Oh! I know where he is If you want to find the Butcher, I know where he is. "His name it is carved in stone", I saw him I saw him, his name it is carved in stone I saw him, name it is carved in stone. V2 (emphasis Ba-Ker) ditto- "Baker" ditto "(He) died with a bullet all alone" ditto V3 (emphasis Candlestick-Maker) ditto Candlestickmaker ditto "(His) flame it no longer burns" ditto V4 (emphasis Grand-Sons) ditto grandsons (them) ditto "(They're) leaving all their litter here" ditto

(C) cresby.com If litter doesn't translate then try garbage. emphasis is to make the words scan. They just dun gotta be them words I'm afraid. Unless John Doe is part of a trio.

Let me know if it strikes a chord.
