One of the greatest anti-war songs "of all time" as we say.
I will always think of this as a Planxty song (see here, but ignore the bad distortion in the audio and enjoy the hurdy gurdy), but Rusby will do, of course. Drinking with my brother again last weekend, now fighting America's petty domestic wars (he's a Memphis cop) after finishing his duty fighting our foreign ones, I am reminded why it is I that "I wish the queen would bring home her armies."
It's not their people who fight their wars, it's my people. So whatever your politics, perhaps you'll understand why I will till the day I die say fuck them.
