GUEST,Jane Lyr Req: Sands of Sudan (from The Dubliners) (4) Is this a Jon Heslop song? 05 Jun 08


I have found a song called Sands of Sudan which someone said was a Jon Heslop song. Can anyone help? The first verse is something like

There's a withering child on the sands of Sudan
His body's too weak to hold out his hand,
And beg for the bread that he might get today,
For the Bird in the Sky from the West's on its way.
