With a decent FTP program (I use "Core FTP") it's kind of easy to check and see if any files on the site have been updated that shouldn't have been just by checking the file dates...

Ag, I did find one of the forum files that had a modification date of just a few months ago, which it shouldn't have.  So I checked and it had a hack line in it.  I took that out, and just waited to see if it helped at all...

Nice one, Buster.  Great tune, and good start on the lyrics.........there will be more lyrics, right?  Not that it necessarily needs more, I'm just big on lyrics.

Either way, I like it.  What is it you need help with?

Thanks Joom. Yeh it's lyrics, I got stuck there. I thought a good start but everything I wrote from there on was rubbish. I was thinking it could be a prison song or war etc. or something like that that seperates people. I did have an idea for the "final line" which was something like "I hope to see you all this time next year". If anything springs to mind chief let me know.

I caught most of the lyrics in there, but there are a few words I'm not positive on.  If you post the lyrics so far, I'm sure people will jump in on this one...

Thanks Joom

so far I have...

C                                  g7               c
Merry Christmas to you my darlin
C7                   F                    c            g7
Another year apart has come and gone
                C                           g7                     c
And it’s fair to say I miss you more than ever
C7                   F                    c            g7
While we’re apart my love for you is strong


After that I tentatively had.....

"Can you please Kiss our babies for me

I long to hold them close and have you near

And If I make parole in September

I hope to see you all this time next year"

I'd change that for something better and after that I got nothing.

Don't know if you can use any of this, Buster, but it's just a few possible options.  As always, no problem if none of it works.  I'm sure somebody will come up with other options.

Merry Christmas to you my darlin
Another year apart has come and gone
And it’s fair to say that I miss you more than ever
While we’re apart my love for you stays strong

You know I really miss our babies
Could you kiss them once for me
And tell them that I love them
They make us a family

I can't wait to hold them close again
With you there by my side
And show you all what you mean to me
My children and my bride

You know this war is almost over
And I'll be coming home to you
So I can spend next Christmas with you all
And we can start our life anew

So tell the children that I love them
And know that I love you too
I can't wait to be home again darling
And spend the rest of my life with you

Hope some of it helped Buster, or at least gave you some ideas.

And Merry Christmas to you too...
