NO MAN'S LAND 
  (AKA: The Green Fields Of France)
  Eric Bogle
capo: 3rd fret

      C                      F          Dm
Well, how do you do, Private William Mc-Bride
       G                        F             C
Do you mind if I sit here, down by your grave-side
         C                       F           Dm 
And I'll rest for a while in the warm summer sun
          G                          F          C     
I've been walking all day; Lord, and I'm nearly done
       C                               Dm        
And I see by your gravestone, you were only nine-teen
         G7                            C            G
When you joined the glorious fallen in nineteen six-teen
       C                         Dm            
Well I hope you died quick and I hope you died clean
   G                       F           C
Or Willie Mc-Bride, was it slow and ob-scene

CHORUS:
         G                              F              C
Did they beat the drum slowly, did they sound the fife lowly
        G                            F           C
Did the rifles fire o'er you as they lowered you down
        F                            G        
Did the bugles sing The Last Post in chorus
        C              F              G   C
Did the pipes play The Flowers Of The For-est

  
And did you leave a wife or a sweetheart be-hind
In some faithful heart is your memory en-shrined
And though you died back in nineteen-six-teen
To that loyal heart are you always nine-teen
Or are you a stranger without even a name
For-ever enshrined  be-hind a glass pane
In an old photo-graph, torn and tattered and stained
And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame

REPEAT CHORUS

Well, the sun's shining now on these green fields of France
The warm wind blows gently and the red poppies dance
The trenches have vanished, long under the plough
No gas and no barbed-wire, no guns firing now
But here in this graveyard, it's still No Man's Land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind in-difference to his fellow man
To a whole gener-ation who were butchered and damned

REPEAT CHORUS

And I can't help but wonder now, Willie Mc-Bride
Do all those who lie here know why they died
Did you really be-lieve them when they told you "The Cause"
Did you really be-lieve that this war would end wars
Well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
The killing, the dying, it was all done in vain
For Willie Mc-Bride, it's all happened a-gain
And A-gain and A-gain and A-gain and A-gain

REPEAT CHORUS
THEN REPEAT THE LAST TWO LINES OF CHORUS
