Krig un fridn (War and Peace) - Morris Rund speaks out against war again.

If you take the last two posts and combine them, you get this song. Rund used the tune of the very famous (at the time) A grus fun der heym, a song about the ravages of war, and set his own words to it, words which are very like the words to his Di Terkishe Bulgarishe Milkhome. It is so similar to the last one (though not as good) that I've decided to skip it... but if it takes your fancy, let me know and I'll link to your rendition. Or email me and I'll record it.
