Old Blind Dogs - "Harry Brewer"


It was Kingstown in 1916
You enlisted to fight for the King
And you all sailed away on a morning in May
And that was the last you were seen
For they threw you into battle
Like dogs on that far away shore
With thousands of Huns with their rattling guns
Made you march through the battery's roar

So where are you now Harry Brewer
You're lying in some dirty hole
With the sun beating down on the old battle ground
May God give rest to your soul

There are officers safe in the barracks
And the medics installed by the beds
While the poor fools of war get cut down by the score
And the blood flows from their heads
And they gave you a fine decoration
For serving the cause of their nation
And all that you cost was a wee silver cross
And your name on a stone by the station

So where are you now Harry Brewer
You're lying in some dirty hole
With the sun beating down on the old battle ground
May God give rest to your soul

And back home where your family were grieving
There were others out fighting for freedom
On the post office steps with their heads held erect
They went down for a cause they believed in
They've not died for the few that have used them
They'll not fight for the crew that abuse them
But they'll hold their ground for a land of their own
And nobody's going to refuse them

So where are you now Harry Brewer
You're lying in some dirty hole
With the sun beating down on the old battle ground
May God give rest to your soul

So here's to you now Harry Brewer
I'm not saying you could have known better
There were thousands like you who sailed over the Brew
And came back in a government letter
There are hundreds who'll beat on the drums
And hundreds who carried the guns
But if you must die at all sure tis better to fall
For the right to hand down to your son

So where are you now Harry Brewer
You're lying in some dirty hole
With the sun beating down on the old battle ground
May God give rest to your soul

@dredger ,I love the "Wake up" video!

This song is not nearly as good as the previous one but I like the train reference. For many years now I have felt like I am watching a "slow train wreck" but now the train seems to be picking up speed and I want to get off (to another timeline?).

This John Mayer song caught my attention this evening.

This is how I imagine a God who created the machines to enable himself to play the tune of new creation, even though when all men are deeply asleep only capable to pray for the answers, not seeing the answers within themself, but their prayers hit a creative impulse inside of one man, in order to transform himself into an amplifier and creative conglomerate of humanity to amplify dreams to reality
Just 🤩- a one man orchestra!!! Thanks for sharing!

The Vouges: A Pittsburgh band, from Turtle Creek. Below, 1965 song, "Five O'Clock World." One job as a 3rd shift sanitation foreman, I'd play music over the loud speakers and my crew would dance while cleaning equipment and floors. This was the End of Shift Song.

First up, the original song was used as music for a Drew Carry Show opening (I loved that show and Who's Line Is It)

2nd has The Vouges singing...background set portrays steel mill and other industrial jobs of Western Pa.
