Playing now and every day the new song from John Williamson called "Looking For a Story". Its a new song and part of a six track release to coincide with ANZAC Day.
John Williamson tells Australian Country Radio," In April 2015 I was standing at The Nek on the Gallipoli Peninsula, where the Turks and Aussies were in trenches not much more than a cricket pitch apart.
The horror of it all was hard to write about.
I was also told the story of an underage soldier who didn’t even make it to the shore at Anzac Cove. This is a war that should not be glorified, but seen as a huge waste of brave young men from both sides who would rather have thrown down their rifles and shared a billy. It is the lonely campfire setting I have tried to emulate in the recording. I can imagine in the scene a digger burying his mate. We must never forget their sacrifice or the futility of war. Nor should we forget the bond it created between Turkey and Australia.’
