Elton John – Gone To Shiloh lyrics

Luther left at first light Friday morning

 Little Dan and Becky wave good-bye

 They're gonna have to share the weight together

 Idle hands will see a good farm slowly die.

Gone to Shiloh for the Union
Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

 Gone to Shiloh, hope springs eternal

When flags and bullets start to fly

April's come and the air smells fresh with rain

They watched his shadow fade around the bend
He's headed for a different kind of thunder

And the stunned surprise in the eyes of dying men

Gone to Shiloh for the Union

Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

Gone to Shiloh, time passes slowly

When flags and bullets start to fly

The old black rooster singin' down that dirt road

 His steps seem bold, his manner fancy free

 I pray we see him alive and well in the fall here
Than that Godforsaken place in Tennessee

Gone to Shiloh for the Union

 Shoulder to shoulder, side by side

 Gone to Shiloh, men stand united

 When flags and bullets start to fly

After all this, if we should prevail

 Heaven help the South

When Sherman comes their way
