Hollies - Soldier's Song Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Smoke was slowly rising as the night began to fade,
  • There were fires on the sky line from some distant born array,
  • I was riding out at 17 to join my first brigade,
  • Many years ago.
  • And I chanced upon a farm house where the woman took me in,
  • She gave me food and wine, she gave me shelter from the wind,
  • She delayed me from my regiment, and service of my King,
  • Many years ago.
  • She said "Soldier, before I lose you to the fight,
  • Oh my soldier, I'll make a man of you tonight"
  • She took me over, in the fading fire glow,
  • On that wild and misty night she was my woman.
  • When I rose next morning I was gone before she stirred,
  • Tore myself away from there and left without a word,
  • Sound of distant infantry was the only thing I heard,
  • On that morning.
  • And in that day I aged 10 years and died a thousand deaths,
  • I learned the feel of frozen steal and fear within my breast,
  • But the lesson I remember 'til they laided me to my rest,
  • Keeps returning.
  • She said "Soldier, before I lose you to the fight,
  • Oh my soldier, I'll make a man of you tonight"
  • She took me over, in the fading fire glow,
  • On that wild and misty night she was my woman.
  • And when the dice of war was thrown, and victory was won,
  • My drunken young compatriots went out to have their fun,
  • And there was no single house they did not burn or over run,
  • On that evening.
  • And I rode out to that place again as hard as I could ride,
  • but I found her by the trail on the lonely mountain side,
  • In the hands of those brave friends of mine she suffered and she died,
  • Many years ago.
  • "Soldier, before I lose you to the fight,
  • Oh my soldier, I'll make a man of you tonight"
  • She took me over, in the fading fire glow,
  • On that wild and misty night she was my woman.
