La Storia De Un Soldato
Ennio Morricone Lyrics


Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall In" and march off to war.
Blue grass and cotton, burnt and forgotten
All hope seems gone so soldier march on to die.

Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
"Sign up" and "Fall In" and march off to war.

There in the distance a flag I can see,
Scorched and in ribbons but whose can it be,
How ends the story, whose is the glory
Ask if we dare, our comrades out there who sleep.

Bugles are calling from prairie to shore
Sign up and fall in and march on to war.
Drums beating loudly, hearts beating proudly,
March blue and march grey and smile as yo go.

Smoke fills the valleys and fire paints the plains
Loud roar the cannons 'til ruin remains.
Blue grass and cotton burnt and forgotten,
All hope seems gone, so soldier march on to die.

Count all the crosses and count all the tears.
These are the losses and sad souvenirs.
This devastation once was a nation
So fall the dice, how high is the price we pay?

There in the distance a flag I can see
Scorched and in ribbons, but who's can it be?
How ends the story? Who's is the glory?
So ask if we dare our comrades out there who sleep.

* Peaceful harmonica ambience for the finale *

After Viet Nam I think this says it all. Just glad I made it home. What a waste..

Its impossible to fight a war with one hand tied behind your back.
