Al Stewart - Roads To Moscow Lyrics

  • Roads to Moscow
  • They crossed over the border the hour before dawn
  • Moving in lines through the day
  • Most of our planes were destroyed on the ground where they lay
  • Waiting for orders we held in the wood - word from the front never came
  • By evening the sound of the gunfire was miles away
  • Ah, softly we move through the shadows, slip away through the trees
  • Crossing their lines in the mists in the fields on our hands and our knees
  • And all that I ever was able to see
  • The fire in the air glowing red silhouetting the smoke on the breeze
  • All summer they drove us back through the Ukraine
  • Smolensk and Viasma soon fell
  • By autumn we stood with our backs to the town of Orel
  • Closer and closer to Moscow they came - riding the wind like a bell
  • General Guderian stands at the crest of the hill
  • Winter brought with her the rains, oceans of mud filled the roads
  • Gluing the tracks of their tanks to the ground while the sky filled with snow
  • And all that I ever was able to see
  • The fire in the air glowing red silhouetting the snow on the breeze
  • In the footsteps of Napoleon the shadow figures stagger through the winter
  • Falling back before the gates of Moscow,
  • Standing in the wings like an avenger
  • And far away behind their lines the partisans are stirring in the forest
  • Coming unexpectedly upon their outposts, growing like a promise
  • You'll never know, you'll never know
  • Which way to turn, which way to look, you'll never see us
  • As we're stealing through the blackness of the night,
  • You'll never know, you'll never hear us
  • And the evening sings in a voice of amber, the dawn is surely coming
  • The morning roads leads to Stalingrad, and the sky is softly humming
  • Two broken Tigers on fire in the night flicker their souls to the wind
  • We wait in the lines for the final approach to begin
  • It's been almost four years that I've carried a gun
  • At home it will almost be spring
  • The flames of the Tigers are lighting the road to Berlin
  • Ah, quickly we move through the ruins that bow to the ground
  • The old men and children they send out to face us, they can't slow us down
  • And all that I ever was able to see
  • The eyes of the city are opening now it's the end of the dream
  • I'm coming home, I'm coming home,
  • Now you can taste it in the wind, the war is over
  • And I listen to the clicking of the train wheels as we roll across the border
  • And now they ask me of the time
  • When I was caught behind their lines and taken prisoner
  • "They only held me for a day, a lucky break", I say;
  • They turn and listen closer
  • I'll never know, I'll never know
  • Why I was taken from the line and all the others
  • To board a special train and journey deep into the heart of holy Russia
  • And it's cold and damp in the transit camp, and the air is still and sullen
  • And the pale sun of October whispers the snow will soon be coming
  • And I wonder when I'll be home again and the morning answers "Never"
  • And the evening sighs and the steely Russian skies go on forever
