  I like the Fureys and this is lovely. For me the greatest song about it is song of Craonne. Here are the lyrics, the music is beautiful too. When after eight days, the rest over We go take back the trenches, Our place is so useful That without us we'd get crushed But that's over, we've had enough No one wants to march any more And with a heavy heart, as if in a weep We say farewell to civvies Even without drums, even without trumpets We climb up there, keeping our heads down - Chorus : Farewell to life, farewell to love, Farewell to all women It's all over, it's forever For this infamous war It's at Craonne on the plateau That we must kick the bucket Because we're all condemned We're the sacrificed Eight days of trench, eight days of suffering But we still have hope That tonight will come the relief That we're waiting without truce Suddenly in the night and in silence We see someone approaching That's an officer of rifles Who comes to replace us Softly in the shadow under the falling rain The little rifles are looking for their graves It's sad to see on the main boulevards All these fat ones partying If for them life is great For us, it's not the same thing Instead of hiding, all these shirkers Had better climb to the trenches To defend their ownings, for we own nothing We the poor miserous All the comrades are buried there To defend the ownings of these gentlemen - Chorus : Those who've got the dough, they'll come back For it's for them we die But it's over, because the soldiers Will all go on strike It'll be your turn, fat gentlemen To climb on the plateau For if you want to do war Pay it with your own blood

  I love that song. I’ve hear it many a time. It is so nostalgic and thought provoking.
