Thread Name: This Song Makes me Weep
Subject: RE: This Song Makes me Weep
The first time I ever heard The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, about thirty years ago, I was in my car. I think it was sung by Margaret Chrystal(sp?). I had to pull over to the shoulder till I recovered.
When I got home I told my wife,"I just heard the greatest anti-war song in the world."
She said,"You mean you've never heard that song before. Everyone knows it."
I still love that song.
