paulo Lyr Req: Grey October (9) Lyr Req: Grey October 04 Mar 03


Following on from the recent thread about the best anti-war songs this song came to mind.

The first verse is:
Grey October in Glamorgan
High pit heaps were the houses stand
Fog in the valley, the back shift ending
Children awaken in Aberfan

It might not sound like an anti-war song but the verses alternate between what happend in Aberfan that morning in the early '60s and what was happening in a village in Vietnam at the same time.

Great song though it is I can't remember all the words and I can't find it in any data base.

Help please

Paulo
