little soldiers all in blue and grey every one of us a’ bleedin’ red and when this broken body falls away we’ll all lie down in the same earthen bed
lay down your holy irons lay down your guns and shining bayonets lay down your holy irons it’s gonna’ be a job to raise the dead lay down your holy irons lay down your guns and shining bayonets the broken hearted lord can only wring his hands it’s gonna’ be a job to raise the
