Radiohead: Harry Patch (In memory of)

Harry Patch (In memory of)
I am the only one that got through
The others died where ever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
I've seen devils coming up from the ground
I've seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn

BBC - Today - Radiohead: Harry Patch (In memory of)

I think that this is quite beautiful!

Why do you still march old man, With medals on your chest?
Why do you still grieve old man, For those friends you laid to rest?
Why do your eyes gleam old man, When you hear those bugles blow?
Tell me why you cry old man, For those days so long ago?


I'll tell you why I march young man, With medals on my chest.
I'll tell you why I grieve young man, For those I laid to rest.
Through misty fields of gossamer silk Come visions of distant times.
When boys of tender age Marched forth to distant climes.


We buried them in a blanket shroud, Their young flesh scorched and blackened.
A communal grave, newly gouged, In blood-stained gorse and bracken.
And you ask why I march young man? I march to remind you all,
That but for those apple-blossom youths You'd never have known freedom at all
