Radiohead - Harry Patch

Radiohead - Harry Patch

10th Aug 2009

In memory of the last British Great War survivor, Harry Patch, Radiohead have produced a heart-rending tribute that uses the words of Patch. Beautiful and very sad.

The lyrics:

I am the only one that got through
The others died where ever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
I've seen devils coming up from the ground
I've seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn

Harry Patch
