"Soldier Boy Dying Tonight" (karaoke)

"Soldier Boy Dying Tonight" (sheet music)


Where is my boy they took away?

Snatched from his mother's embrace;

Trained him for battle's bloody fray;

Estranged him from love and grace.

 

In battle wounded tonight;

My boy is dying tonight;

His heart blood flows;

Whom he fought he ne'er knows.

Soldier boy dying tonight.

 

Marched away to a war of shame,

War that was trumpeted loud,

Only to make some magnate's name,

And dazzle the gaping crowd.

 

In battle wounded tonight;

My boy is dying tonight;

His heart blood flows;

Whom he fought he ne'er knows.

Soldier boy dying tonight.

 

Brute was he who taught you to kill;

Brute also, he who killed you.

Knowing naught but a murd'rous will

To mutually hack and hew.

 

In battle wounded tonight;

My boy is dying tonight;

His heart blood flows;

Whom he fought he ne'er knows.

Soldier boy dying tonight.

 

War upon war we cry tonight.

Speak out for the thousands slain.

War against war with all your might,

The lives now taken in vain.

 

In battle wounded tonight;

My boy is dying tonight;

His heart blood flows;

Whom he fought he ne'er knows.

Soldier boy dying tonight.
