This is a classic collection of 36 songs from one of Australia's master songwriters, Eric Bogle, featuring his best-loved songs and new gems destined to become classics! One of his best known songs, written in 1972 and featured in this chord songbook, is "And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda", a haunting evocation of the ANZAC experience fighting in the Battle of Gallipoli; it has also been interpreted as a reaction to the Vietnam war. In a similar vein to this song, "No Man's Land" refers to the old Scottish song "Flowers of the Forest" being played over the grave of a World War I soldier. As well as these haunting and evocative folk-songs, Eric Bogle's songs also range from bright comic, to satirical, to protest songs, and to other serious considerations of the human condition. All the songs presented in this book have been arranged for Guitar, complete with full lyrics and guitar chord boxes.
