about

Recorded way back in the early 80's when I was a member of K.T. Rouge. Remember writing this one after I had a peek into my Grandfather's satchel, old medals, letters from the trenches, old snapshots. It doesn't really matter which side you're on, it costs a lot to fight a war.

lyrics

FIELDS OF FLANDERS/ ROBERT JAMES

I woke up in the trenches with the smell of mustard gas
Stench of fallen comrades all around
Such a handsome price you pay for the real estate of war
Ten thousand die for one square foot of ground

And here I am ....
Dragging myself through the bodies
Here I am ....
Bleeding, hungry and cold

I don't mind fighting for home
And I don't mind dying alone
But do I have to die on the fields of Flanders

Guns had started speaking and I heard somebody scream
If the armor plate don't stop them we'll catch hell
Some men started running and I guess I fell behind
'Cause the last thing I remember was the shell ....
