A Soldier

There have been many soldiers
One son was ours
Far far too many soldiers
One son was ours

Brave-hearted soldier
Gave all a soldier
A young man a soldier
But what can a soldier do who’s gone

There have been many battles
One son fought his
Far far too many battles
One son fought his

Came home a hero
Fame for a hero
A young man our hero
But what can a hero do who’s gone

They ordered he obeyed
They blundered and he paid
My son was a soldier
Gave all a soldier

Scared men will lie
Rich men well-born
Young men will die
Families will mourn for

Young men their soldiers
Brave-hearted soldiers and

Scared men will lie
Rich men well-born
Young men will die
Families will mourn

Scared men will lie
Rich men well-born
Young men will die
Families will mourn
