Sean; Great to hear from you. I believe "The Green Fields of France" is the original title for that song. Although allow me to qualify that by saying although I collect songs about war, I am no expert. I do have a version by the Irish Rovers titled "Willie McBride" (Note the third alternate title.) and a version by June Tabor Titled "The Green Fields of France. It is in either case a very moving song. reguards, Neil
