Thread Name: This Song Makes me Weep
Subject: RE: This Song Makes me Weep
Yet another blubberer here when I hear (forget trying to sing) 'Christmas In the Trenches' and 'The Band Played Waltzing Matilda' and many others already mentioned.

I'll add 'Un Canadien Errant' to the list, maybe partly because I have a soft spot for that bad time of Quebec history which was echoed in Ontario about the same time--farmers, labourer et al. going hungry, Family Compact & friends getting richer, good old taxation without representation at work. And violence to keep down the protests of course. I choke up every darn time I sing it.
