Green Fields Of France Lyrics - Prussian Blue

Review The Song (2)



Well how do you do, young Willie McBride?
Do you mind if I sit here down by your grave side,
A rest for a while in the warm summer sun?
I've been walking all day and I'm nearly done.
I see by your gravestone that you were only 19
When you joined the great call up in 1916.
Well, I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean.
Or, Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?

CHORUS:
Did they beat the drum slowly?
did they play the pipes lowly?
Did they play the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play 'The Last Post' in chorus?
Did the pipes play 'The Flowers of the Forest'?

Did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind?
In some faithful heart is your memory enshrined.
sponsored links
And although you died back in 1916,
In that faithful heart are you forever 19.
Or are you just a stranger without a name
Enclosed behind some glass-pane
In an old photograph, battered and stained
And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame?

Did they beat the drum slowly?
did they play the pipes lowly?
Did they play the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play 'The Last Post' in chorus?
Did the pipes play 'The Flowers of the Forest'?

The sun, oh it shines on the green fields of France,
The warm summer brease makes the red poppies dance.
And look how the sun shines from under the clouds.
No gas, no barbed wire, no guns firing now.
But here in this graveyard, it's still No Man's Land
And the countless white crosses in mute witness stand.
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
To the whole generation that was butchered and downed.

Did they beat the drum slowly?
did they play the pipes lowly?
Did they play the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play 'The Last Post' in chorus?
Did the pipes play 'The Flowers of the Forest'?

Well, for one thing, this is a cover, they are NOT the original artists. Then there's the fact that they omit the entire last verse which in no uncertain terms CONDEMNS war for any reason, thus the whole point of this song is lost to serve as some pro-German propaganda. So... that's why.

beautifull tribute to the fallen | Reviewer: just me | 7/2/2007

amazing ! where are all the yutzes who scream about racism everytime they hear the name prussian blue ? could it possibly be that they cant face the fact that these girls dont just do that kind of music ? and why is it ok for a black man to sing about black pride , but its wrong for a white man to sing about white pride ? being of native american heritage I believe it is every mans right to be proud of his own race !!!!!!
