Louis was my dearest friend
Fighting in the ANZAC trench
Louis ran forth 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 color of the earth that day
It was dull and browny red
The color of blood, I'd say
