I have just added a wonderful song to Magic Words, Magic Moments

There are truly some amazing songs written about the wars, a lot of them very sad and poignant and when I came across this on the web I just had to add it to one of the web pages and I chose Magic Words and Magic Moments for there were some moments that were Magic although they were cruel, the complete poem/song is at http://seligorscastle.zoomshare.com
 Magic Words And Magic Moments

Magic Words; are they - I'm not sure about the Magic but I'm certain about the words. They are very sad and very poigniant in this day and age like they were during the last two world wars and all those in between.

"And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda"
1972 - Eric Bogle


Now when I was a young man I carried my pack
And lived the free life of the rover
From the Murray's Green Basin to the dusty outback
I waltzed my Matilda all over
Then in 1915 my country said "Son,
It's time you stopped rambling, there's work to be done."

So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
And they marched me away to the war

    And the band played Waltzing Matilda
    As the ship pulled away from the quay
    And amidst all the cheers, flag waving and tears
    We sailed off for Gallipoli

And how well I remember that terrible day
How our blood stained the sand and the water
And of how in that hell that they called Souvla Bay
We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
'Johnny Turk' he was ready, he'd primed himself well
He rained us with bullets and he showered us with shell
And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell
Nearly blew us right back to Australia
