They told all the fine young men
“When this War is over
There will be peace
And the peace will lost forever"
ln Flanders fields, at Lone Pine ond Bersheeba
For King and Country, for honour ond duty
The young men fought ond cursed ond wept ond died

They told all the fine young men
“When this War is over
There will be peace
And the peace will lost forever"
Tobruk ond Alamein, Bhuna ond Kokoda
ln a world mad with War like their fathers before
The young men fought and cursed and wept and died

For many of those fine young men
All the wars are over
They’ve found their peace
lt’s the peace thot losts forever
When the call comes agoin they will not ansvver
They’re just forgotten bones lying for from their homes
As forgotten as the cause for which they died
Ah, young men, can you see now why they lied?


A great song from the pen of Eric Bogle, a Scot who found his home in Australia and has written some of the best-known and loved Australian songs.
