One Tin Soldier Song

 

Lyrics

Listen children to a story
 That was written long ago
 'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
 And the valley folk 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
 
 [Chorus]
 Go ahead and hate your neighbour
 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
 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
 Came an answer from the mountain
 With our brothers we will share
 All the secrets of our mountain
 All the riches buried there
 
 [Chorus]
 
 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
 On the mountain dark and red
 Turned the stone and looked beneath it
 Peace on Earth
 Was all it said.
 
 [Chorus}
