Skeeter Davis - One Tin Soldier

rate me

(Dennis Lambert - Brian Potter)

Listen children to a story that was written long ago

'Bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley down below

On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone

And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven you can justify it in the end

There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day

On the bloody morning after ooh ooh one tin soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill

Asking for the buried treasure tons of gold for which they'd kill

Come an answer from the kingdom with our brothers we will share

All the secrets of our mountain all the riches buried there.

Now the valley cried with anger mount your horses draw your sword

And they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward

Now they stood beside the treasure and the mountain dark and red

Turned the stone and looked beneath it Peace on Earth was all it said.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven you can justify it in the end

There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day

On the bloody morning after ooh ooh one tin soldier rides away.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven you can justify it in the end

There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgement day

On the bloody morning after ooh ooh one tin soldier rides away...
