Day 25: An acoustic song you love

An acoustic song I absolutely love is the most well-known song of Australian folk band Redgum; ‘A Walk in the Light Green’, also known as ‘I Was Only Nineteen’. The song was penned in the 1980s after John Schumann spoke to Vietnamese war veterans about their experiences. I really like this live version of the song, with the back up up of the violin and flute.

The lyrics are really simple but meaningful. There’s a reason this song is considered a classic in Australia!
