"A Scottish Soldier" * Andy Stewart

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sAitY3y9mY&ab_channel=IanMaclean

 

This the original version, used to hear this on my transistor radio when I was a kid. Made me feel like going to battle. Just like when watching them old Errol Flynn movies. Boy did things change when I got to my late teens in 67'.

Green Fields of France (No Man's Land) - aka Willie McBride

 

Written by Scottish singer / songwriter Eric Bogle and performed by just about every Irish singer or group on the planet. It is a tribute to the fallen soldiers of WWI. Bogle also said it was written in response to anti-Irish sentiment in the UK during the 70's, and generally, an anti war song.

Well, he thinks he's a hero!  Cat Wink

The damsel doesn't appear too interested in being rescued, however.
