Music: The Colour of the Earth

I know it's early days but here is a song I really would like to teach my class for an assembly item - especially in time for ANZAC DAY.

You know, we might just have enough time to learn it!


Louis was my dearest friend
Fighting in the ANZAC trench
Louis ran forward from the line
I never saw him again
Later in the dark
I thought I heard Louis' voice
Calling for his mother, then me
But I couldn't get to him
He's still up on that hill
20 years on that hill
Nothing more than a pile of bones
But I think of him still
If I was asked I'd tell
The colour of the earth that day
It was dull and browny red
The colour of blood, I'd say
