R. Padgett Book 'Kiss me Good Night Sergeant Major' (7) RE: Book 'Kiss me Good Night Sergeant Major' 21 Nov 05


Well thanks for your attention

I had the book some years ago and lent it to Keith Marsden ~ believe it or not

I put tunes to one which started ~ Far across the ocean lies a land so fair and sweet, rugged hills and valleys with their house small and neat etc (Our Country)

And 'They taught him how to use a knife and kill without a sound to climb a cliff to swim a stream and burrow in the dark, they taught him how to hate the foe withn all consuming rage until the animal in man burst forth from reasons cage' ~

Also one about a conscientious objector ~


As I say I dont have the book anymore and november brings thoughts of rememberance etc in Uk

The songs came back the other day when I was talking to fellow trad song collector Steve Gardham from Goole

If you know of any existing tunes which are online I would be interested to know

Many thanks
